Woods of Wisdom - Summer Retro Goodness

Woods of Wisdom - Summer Retro Goodness

Deanne Mayocchi our clever Maiocchi designer share her inspiration for the Summer Woods of Wisdom Collection.

Continuing with my ongoing love of all things floral, this season I have looked towards nature and woodland blooms as my botanical muse.

Inspiration has come from childhood memories of long sunny days spent daydreaming, listening to birds sing, smelling the flowers and climbing trees. 

Custom prints for the season are nature inspired and reminiscent of childlike sketches and paper cut outs. A country cottage sets the scene with a garden in bloom, feathered friends and other woodland creatures. (Shop the retro Dreamsicle Range)

Naïve little cotton sundresses have been re imagined in more grown up vintage style silhouettes. Fabulously retro styles are abundant in fun and playful yet ladylike and feminine frocks. True to Maiocchi's DNA the collection is not with out the Japanese cotton fabrics and Asian inspired prints.

Woods of Wisdom is not for the shrinking violet, with its bold childlike colours of red, yellow and bright blues which have been offset with muted dreamy tones of calico and peach.

I hope you love the Summer Collection as much as I do.
