Design Porn: Magpie Belle

When I was a kid, I used to collect antique postcards (did anyone else have strange collections?) The postcards had oil paintings of Flamenco dancers, with the dresses all embroidered in silk. They were luscious. Magpie Belle's designs remind me of them, with a modern twist.


This is my favourite design. It's called Aristotle and it's from the Le Frocks range (there's also Birds and Astro, but they didn't impress me as much).


Designer Claire borrows things that she finds in everyday life, just like a magpie. Then she dresses her pretty ladies in them.


Yes, that girl in the fabulous skirt has a cat on her head.


I love the ice cream colours of this skirt. Actually, I would like to find a skirt like this in real life.


This is Pascal, looking all French and beautiful.

The embellished prints are all around £70 and very pretty indeed. There's something a little spooky about the beautiful women in all their stolen finery.
