Fly girl

I went to so many launches last week I’m surprised I managed to get anything else done. In amongst the umpteen bloggers’ events (Arcadia, Exposure, ASOS) there was also a first look at the Zakee Shariff/Roxy Heart collaboration at Beyond The Valley. I have been following Ms Shariff’s work for years and always like her colourful, poetic aesthetic. Roxy (yep, the surf label) have enlisted her skills to guest-design a collection called Fly Like An Eagle for the surfer girl who has grown up a bit. That youthful spirit is still there but the clothes are more sophisticated than sporty. THe pop-up shop will stay in situ at Beyond the Valley until 27th September – have a look if you’re in the area, Zakee has adorned the walls with her own illustrated wallpaper. The collection is also being sold at the Shop at Bluebird, Colette and No-One.
