Flutter by..


The Butterfly is appearing everywhere – McQueen, Valentino and here – with this stunning silk jacquard skirt by the New York label Tome that you just want to touch and treasure.  I love the way it’s been styled with the long gloves against the short, loose v-necked cashmere jumper.


Freedom, innocence, peace, good luck, nature, femininity…the butterfly is a powerful symbol throughout  the world.

But there’s also it’s fragile beauty and delicate symmetry. No wonder we humans are obsessed with capturing it’s heart and soul, if only in an ethereal Cinemagraph.  This butterfly was let lose after it’s photoshoot, into the wilds of Manhattan because true beauty should only be admired….

    The Tome collection looks very interesting — Jackie Mallon had a great post about them (the designers are friends of hers). The butterfly is a gorgeous and elusive being, bringing lightness and joy to life. Perhaps, that is why designers pull their shape and pattern into their collections. XO

    Oh….my heart stopped when I saw him trapped….thank goodness they set him free…. Butterflies are the souls of those who have been well loved I was once told. Very special to many of us….
