Edina Ronay modelling some incredible pieces by Emmerton Lambert, one of the cult labels which emerged from the Chelsea Antique Market in the late Sixties. A classic example of the plundering of the 1930s by designers of the time but unlike those creating garments ‘in the style of’, they were instead using period fabrics to create a new, thrown together, patchwork kind of look. I think these have become my favourite kinds of pieces in recent years: perhaps because there’s a tangible link to both periods when you handle them.

A stunning set of images by Caroline Arber of the gorgeous Edina Ronay. The photographs are actually for a men’s accessories editorial, so there are no credits for the clothes. I am making an educated guess that the garments in the first two are Thea Porter because my Thea Porter gypsy dress is exactly the same print.
