MARCEL GETS MADE

WE'VE GOT A NEW FAVOURITE CHILD.

SHE'S CALLED MARCEL. AND MARCEL IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TO WEAR TO EASE YOU INTO MONDAY.

(SHE'S BLACK AND WHITE AND EASY ON THE EYES IN CASE YOU'RE STILL SEEING SPOTS FROM WEEKEND ANTICS)

NICE AND EASY, LEMON SQUEEZY:

YOU WANNA SEE HOW SHE GOT BORN?

OF COURSE YOU DO. 

LET'S BACK TRACK; FROM WHEN WE FOUND OURSELVES HAVING A LITTLE MONOCHROME MOMENT, IN THE FORM OF IKAT AND POLKA DOTS. 

AND NATURALLY, WE CALL ON THE MUSES TO INSPIRE HOW TO  CUT SUCH A LOVELY SWATH OF BLACK AND CREAM SATEEN.

CUE THE INSPIRATION:

WORLDS GREATEST PAIR OF SHORTS:

A PERFECT WHITE PEONY WITH A BLACK POLKA DOT FOR A CENTRE:

KUSAMA'S SPOTS:

HAVE YOU MET OUR MUSE BEFORE? HERE HE IS JUST HOW WE LIKE HIM, IN STRIPES:

SOME MADLY-COOL BUG FROM AFRICA: 

(IF REINCARNATION LOOKS LIKE THIS, SIGN US UP)

THE REAL MARCEL:

AND A REALLY PERFECT TROMPE L'OEIL RUNNER. 

THATS ENOUGH INSPIRATION. LET'S GET INTO IT.

QUILTED PANELS AND PIECES

WITH A LEOPARD BACK PATCH. A SPLASH OF LEOPARD, WE CAN NEVER RESIST.

AND A SAFFRON-YELLOW AFRICAN LINING, TO FEED OUR COLOUR MONSTER. 

WE DECIDE WE REALLY LIKE HER. 

SO WE HOP IN THE CAR TO TAKE HER AROUND

LIZ, OF OUR SECOND HOME IN THE CITY, FLAT 128 ON CHRISTOPHER ST GIVES MARCEL A TRY:

AND OUR DARLING ANTOINETTE TOO.

(ITS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE A BAD TIME WEARING THIS JACKET. THATS A FACT.)

IN OTHER BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE NEWS,

HERE'S MICK, WEARING A BOHEMIA JACKET:

NOT REALLY.

BUT IT TOTALLY LOOKS LIKE HIS JACKET COULD BE BOHEMIA, NO?

MARCEL AND MICK SAY 'HAPPY MONDAY' TO YOU, BOHEMIAN.

HERE'S A MONDAY SONG:
