Launching her own fashion line after a glamorous start at Lanvin, Holly Fulton has become one of Britain’s most exciting up-and-coming designers of our generation. Launched to stardom after winning the coveted NEWGEN sponsorship award from the British Fashion Council, she has become recognisable by her Art-Deco inspired prints and slick designs.
Transferring these unique prints onto a new medium, Fulton has become the latest designer to create a range for Smythson stationery. Following in the fashionable footprints of Giles Deacon, Erdem and Matthew Williamson, she will be designing a range of 2011 diaries and notebooks in her signature palette of black, yellow and aqua.
With quirky flapper inspired illustrations and exclusive prints from her Autumn/Winter ’10 collection, this range of stationary looks to be one of the chicest ways to keep organised. You can pre-order pieces from the range next week on the Smythson website … and we recommend you get in there quick- Erdem sold out fast!
Being organised never looked quite so good.

I don’t know about you, but after a few days I find myself getting very bored with the same songs over and over again. The Spotify ‘What’s New’ list is, well, dire… but this week I have been lucky enough however to stumble upon The Hundred in the Hands.
A funky duo of “Avant-pop split between the austere and feverish”. Now, I am no music junkie nor am I very knowledgeable in the correct terms and genres, but I am loving their songs. They write together and found one another while travelling across the US. They are based in New York and bring the past sounds of vintage hip-hop and 60s pop into today’s eclectic music scene.
My favourite songs so far are Pigeons, Building in L.O.V.E and Dressed in Dresden. Their website is not only a great place to read about them, but they also write and review music and designers…

One of our favourite illustrations in the latest issue has to be Emma Block’s (above) which fitted perfectly with the vintage feature we commissioned it for. Emma’s work has a perfect Cellardoor style, so it was no surprise that we instantly fell in love. Source
