You may have seen a few #LucyWilliamsxMissoma cropping up on our Instagram over the last few weeks and wondered what it was all about. Well last night we launched our first collaborative collection with the stunning and extremely talented Lucy Williams from fashion & lifestyle blog Fashion Me Now. We were thrilled to work with Lucy who has such a distinct style, definite idea of what she is looking for and amazing attention to detail. It made it a wonderful experience from start to finish and an amazing collaborative experience.
Lucy wanted to create all the pieces she'd had in my mind but never quite been able to find. Unsurprisingly, the pieces themselves were inspired by summer, or more specifically the beach; the kind of pieces you want to layer up with a bikini or wear over tanned skin on hot, balmy nights. Having watched Blue Lagoon she loved the idea of creating really delicate, refined pieces that were inspired by natural treasures you find on the beach and in the sea.
We wanted to invite a few friends along to help us celebrate the culmination of the last few months of work and the launch of the collection. No surprises, we gave it a bit of a beach-style theme; there was sand, shells and polaroids from Lucy’s beach travels.
