Resort SS 2014 “Close to My Heart”
…refers to Bella’s love of Film Noir, 70’s Reggae album covers, graffiti and images of her mother as a 1950’s teenager.
AW 2013 “Day for Night”
Day for night is the name for cinematic techniques used to simulate a night scene. Getting dressed in the morning while thinking about how the outfit will translate for the evening is the fashion equivalent. Day for night dressing adds an elegance and purpose to your look. AW13 is a series of day for night ensembles: Fine merino wool knits teamed with iridescent shirts and dresses – a subtle gleam can be converted into a dazzling gold or silver sheath when the soft knitted cladding is removed.
The AW13 collection is expanded to include six precious pieces of demi couture in silver and gold silk and cotton lame, as well as the classic word jumpers inspired by reggae album covers and 60’s beat poets.

AW 2011 “Fetish”
Fetish is a small collection of knitwear featuring four drawings by Christian Louboutin. The dresses and jumpers in 100% superfine Merino Cashwool in black and green with hints of Lurex portray images of shoes drawn especially by Christian. Fetish is a word we both derive a lot of inspiration from and this collection is a result of twenty years of friendship and mutual love of all things shoes between Christian and me.
SS 2011 “English Boy”
English boy is influenced by 1970′s English boys and the girls who loved them. It is androgyny by boys not afraid to dress in their girlfriend’s jumpers and jackets. David Bowie is Bella’s ultimate English boy.
