We love the variety of mixed media Miranda uses and the diversity of style this brings to her work. Each so brilliantly executed, but effortlessly naive and sweet. London based illustrator, Miranda is one to watch for sure. The series of books she’s illustrated, ‘Things That Bow My Mind‘ are a nice showcase of her talents.

Oh my goodness, not sure we’ve ever stumbled on a more perfect combination of vintage prints and stunning vintage apparel. What a discovery 60s clothing label, Vested Gentress has been. It’s become a bit of an obsession here at the Society and these discoveries need to be shared. Some can be purchased, some we share as the prints are too good not to be seen. Found this fabulous interview and insight from the family of the company’s Founder, Bud, here at The Vintage Traveler – a brilliant celebration of the Designer and his works. What a great opportunity they’ve presented us with to understand more on Bud, the company history, his inspiration, as well as their print and dressmaking processes. Hope you appreciate the beauty of Vested Gentress with as much passion as we have
Oh, and as for the Etsy shops featured, I feel more blog posts coming on….phiewph, the print finds are endless!
