Entries in Alexander Henry (8)
Last week I had the chance to pour over some gorgeous ribbons and trims from Japan. The quality is outstanding, and many were available in subtle, muted tones often found in Japanese textiles. A couple of highlights for me are the grosgrain with a bit of sparkle and the fine, soft knit fold over trim.
There are more, including elegant matte satin.
Alexander Henry designers delight us again with their illustrative sailor print and scruffy looking fish. We welcome back a few of their lovely, light cotton lawn prints (center photo), and the large scale tropical looking floral got me thinking about some embroidery embellishment. The metallic gold chevron is brought to us by the folks at Michael Miller.
The darling ZaZa Zoo by Marisa and Creative Thursday for Andover.
“Sphere” by Zen Chic and “Bee My Honey,” both from Moda. Pretty cute bees…
In addition to all these fabulous prints, we continue to receive more of the Bontanics line by Carolyn Friedlander. We are stocked with 10 subtle, smart prints, working so nicely together and on their own.
To help you craft your way through Valentine’s:
The array in the latest shipment of apparel goods is great—knits, both sweater and jersey, light weight, woven cotton, a brightly colored synthetic blend, and a couple of gorgeous silks (not pictured). We’ll post a couple of pics via Instagram of those beauties. (You can find our Instagram photos on our website.)
Lizzy House’s latest, “Catnap” arrived yesterday. Snappy color combos and amusing kitties and mice.
I love how Lonni Rossi uses metallic in her designs. Subtle, but impressive (top image).
And, the folks at Alexander Henry delight, as usual, with witty and colorful prints. (lower image).
Have you checked out our book selection lately? I have to say, while doing inventory a couple of weeks ago, I was able to look at every single title we carry and I was impressed. It’s a good range of topics and styles. This is the newest title to our collection. Looks good…
Hope to see you soon!
It’s been a long time since I’ve ordered a line in its entirety. When I was shown Charleston Farmhouse by Felicity Miller, I fell in love and knew I wanted to have the whole line there on our shelves. It’s a great line. Interesting, fresh colors, simple, clean designs. A prefect combination! The pictures don’t include each piece, but offer a glimpse of what is gracing our shelves at the moment.
We also received more fabulous cotton/hemp knits in funky prints and a pair of gorgeous Alexander Henry cotton lawn prints:
