As Buying Director I can be extremely practical, however on the odd occasion I get swept away by enthusiasm for a 'high impact' collection and all bets are off. It was thus with a truly inspiring and wonderfully eclectic brand from Amsterdam, which epitomises part of my design aesthetic - pieces that are not essential but that I truly desire! These are the things that make me happiest, so please bear with me as this unveiling is very much about fantasy - and where would we be without it?!
At the top of the list is a set of four, golden, porcelain teacups lined with coloured glazes. The spot on the saucer beneath the cup matches the glaze within (they are all different shades) as is the underside of the saucer so there is wonderful detailing. In style, they are straight out of Versailles - glamorous and grand with a delicate shape. Oozing finesse, I cannot wait to serve tea in them - really need a powdered wig for these!
