The quilted fabrics is all the rage this season: the dresses and jackets, both warm and lightweight, will quickly become a wardrobe staple. Animal prints - fans of cats and bears will love! - and fun embroideries create a modern minimalist twist.
The striped shirt was originally a naval sailor's uniform, designed to help distinguish the sailors from the waves so you could find them more easily when they fell overboard.
By the 1930s, the Breton stripe had been elevated to "haute couture" status, making it a popular choice for fashionable upper class ladies.

Christina Bollenbach is a talented kids book illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia known for her charming series of children's books.
How did you get your first illustration job?
My first illustration job was a series of oil paintings. A client who saw my paintings at Uni asked me to illustrate the four seasons.
What do you love most about being a children's book illustrator/author?
The audience. Kids are very direct and imaginative and it is great to see them connecting with a story.
I also love the creative part. Developing the visuals for a children's book is a nonstop process, which makes it a quite intense experience. That's probably what I love most about it: the intensity.
What is most challenging about it?
I find everything easy, just right to the last step when it comes to finalizing the artwork and that is where I can really struggle. There are hundreds of great ways to illustrate a story or a content and it takes me a lot of time and effort to choose the right one and to overcome that step. But once I made it through that phase it's getting easy again.
Which comes first – the illustrations or the writing of a book?
The story comes first. It is a long process to finish and edit the text. The next step is the storyboard. This is probably my favorite part because it is so rich in opportunities and ideas. Once the visual story is developed the artwork is finalized.
