Hi there, how are you today? How was your weekend?
Enough of the small talk...
I've had the most chilled out weekend in months. The past three weeks have consisted of a bridesmaids' weekend, dinner with friends, hosting a Saturday lunch for family and a Sunday Mothers' Day lunch for the in-laws. So mainly lots of socialising and way too much pigging out! Needless to say I was rather thankful to have a weekend doing nothing more than a bit of pottering around the house and watching lots of DVDs with my man. We were planning on visiting a local car boot sale, but the snow put a stop to that. The only successful ventures out of the house were to the supermarket for supplies and to the cinema to see Oz The Great and The Powerful. This is the outfit I wore for the latter...
The jumper is rather special isn't it? It is part of a collection of four sweatshirts (priced at £75 each) created exclusively for Amazon, by amazing London-based designing duo, Meadham Kirchhoff. The four sweatshirts consist of one men's style featuring a monster print, and three ladies' styles. I was kindly sent the Loveless design by the good people at Amazon. Meadham Kirchhoff described the design as showing, "an abstract crochet style heart broken in two with the signature ribbon lettering written in lipstick.” The other two designs from the collection include two unicorns in an 80's style girly motif, and a 30's style paper doll print with the words 'Mother may I?'. Both very cute, but I do love my loveless sweatshirt! Light, but slightly fleecy on the inside, it is the perfect spring jumper, especially considering the current weather.
As you may have guesses from my last post, I love a collaboration, be it by a musician, a designer or a stylish celeb, with a high street brand or website. Being a bargain lover, I may not be able to afford couture, or even ready-to-wear designer garms, but a collaboration like this allows a taste of their style for a fraction of the price. I think it's fab that Amazon have arranged this partnership, and I hope they've got many more designer-collaborations in the pipeline for the future.
What do you think of the designs? Who would you like to see Amazon collaborate with? What other brand/designer partnerships would get you excited?
