…Then dressing’s a picnic. All these nice new laundered clothes and country girls from Colette stories out in the green fields under blue Provençal skies, with wine and fruit and flowers.

Revlon creates the new Mouth of Summer ’73.
This is the mouth no summer has seen before! Rich, sensuous, dark-fire in six new Revlon colours, iced with frost. A whole new creamfrost formula. Lush and luscious colours only Revlon could create!

Here the Saints go dancing by – bright frills, dotty prints, dancing lengths. Can this be strict Saint Laurent? The only black is a belt, a pair of wedge sandals; all the rest are new summer cottons, crepes, voiles, poppied like so many hay fields, spotted with colour, put with brilliant legs and purple espadrilles.
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling like this is my default fashion mood for Spring/Summer 2019. Must hunt down red tights…

Spring is a story of air spun with flowers – voile light as veils – with veil upon voile. Lyrical layers of patterns together. Bewitching play of light and limb – a gentle illusion to see through – or not – the legs veiled in trousers quite sheer, skirts long and then suddenly short at one side, a flurry of leg through the frills and the flowers. Mary Quant played Pied Piper to the young in the sixties, now she designs to the heart of the new mood with her prettiest collection in years.

Wendy Ramshaw is married to David Watkins. He is a sculptor and jeweller. She is a jeweller too. His electrically acrylic work is a collar dyed blue and sculpted to whoever will wear it. With the hinges and opening and band concealing them of 18 ct yellow gold, it is £880. Wendy Ramshaw makes rings, sculptural ones that fit into one another, with domed stones, smooth metal, finely judged architectural projections. She now makes ring stands so the ring is as handsome off as on. On the brass stand, turquoise and lapis blue enamel ring with outstanding green moonstone, £298 together. Nice work if you can collect it. It is on show at the Craft Centre of Great Britain at 43 Earlham Street, Covent Garden and the Electrum Gallery, 21 South Molton Street. Hair by Maggie Brew.
