COLOUR EXPLOSION! As you all know I am a big grey-black-navy fan, but even I feel uplifted when viewing Heal’s latest offerings. There is quite literally way too much good stuff in this collection for me to post it all without taking hours and killing your hard-drives with one bumper-picture-filled-burst.

Their use of texture and tubing and colour and stitching is unrivalled. For those of us who don’t live in Paris and won’t make it there before the summer, where on earth is it possible to get a hold of some of these beautiful, beautiful things?!
