A Very French Riot Of Colour At Caroline McGrath!

21st November 2013

You know sometimes when you see something and your jaw drops and you know you just have to have it? Yeah, that. Well actually, what I said when these fabulous cushions arrived in my inbox was “oh my god, I’ve got to feature those!” So I am!
If you’ve yet to be introduced, meet fun and vibrant French brand, Le Cerise sur le Gâteau, the brain child of designer Anne Hubert. Delightfully quirky aren’t they?

I absolutely love the styling, it’s no wonder that Anne started out as an editorial stylist. In fact I wish I’d done this myself-I do love a pop of colour.
The collection takes reference from polaroid photography, fairy tales and a childish appetite for discovery which is brought to life through the bright prints and Day-Glo colours. These would look right at home in any fashion forward teenager’s room or given pride of place on the sofa if you’re a big kid like me.

All Anne’s textiles are silk screen printed using water-based inks which, I’m told, are as colour fast as their chemical counterparts but much kinder to the environment and the fabrics she uses includes Toile de Jouy from Alsace, linen from Les Vosges and good old fashioned Liberty print. Everything she uses in her products are sourced as locally as possible, that’s pretty important. What’s not to love?
