FarFetch + Bompas & Parr
This evening, I had the pleasure of taking part in Farfetch's Google hangout featuring culinary designers Bompas & Parr. If you are not familiar with Bompas & Parr, check them out here, you will not be disappointed. Last night was the penultimate instalment in a series they have been doing for Farfetch exploring food, fashion, and festive illuminations.
Bompas & Parr have also done an edit on the Farfetch website of pieces that reflect their colourful, joy-laden ethos (one for women and one for men), and the print and colour lover in me couldn't be happier with their picks. Their edit represents everything I love about fashion; it is a joyous riot of colour and pattern, mixed with some structured foundational pieces that are very modern and edgy. As they state in the website's interview, colour and pattern work really well when you are working with food, as you tend to get it all over you. This sounds remarkably like something that another iconic print-wearer used to say; Lilly Pulitzer used to favour prints while working her orange juice stand in Florida, later giving birth to the empire that we know it as today. This bright, citrusy, calamitous joy is contagious, and I am going back there after I publish this post to have an even closer look. If there is any aftermath, you'll see it soon enough. In the meantime, here are my favourite highlights from their edit.
