With a Fresh Take on Denim…
Fittingly named after an 18th Century French merchant whose success came from his incredible sense of innovation, Etienne Marcel was born in 2011 out of a desire to offer the world a fresh take on denim. It is also fitting that Etienne Marcel is the name of one of the most popular streets in Paris. Using only the finest fabrics from Europe, the line has set a new standard for premium denim.
The design team travels the world, gathering inspiration and discovering new methods to create denim that is unique yet timeless. This results in a spectacular line of denim that suits a wide array of people while noticeably separating itself from the countless denim brands that are currently in the market.
The 60s inspired Fall/Winter 2013 collection mixes rock-and-roll and ethnic influences, heavily focusing on details. On multiple styles, one can find a signature red zipper detail that polishes off the jeans and acts as an unmistakable marker for the brand.

Splurging on a hairbrush may seem a tad indulgent, but we’re yet to meet a head of hair that this brush can’t tame.
Stylists use it for just about everything without damaging those precious locks. From detangling wet hair, to smoothing frizz and relaxing curls after tonging.
Handcrafted in in England since 1885, Mason Pearson hairbrushes have a world reputation of being the best!
Fresh Feb means a fresh new look for your home!
Today we talk an easy breezy home refresh using the décor trends set to be hot in 2014, from Swedish interior stylists Alvhem Makleri.
From vibrant indigo shades to egg shells and teals, blue accents are a must for 2014. Introduce the trend at your place through a rug, a cushion or a funky ornament.
Adding a few pops of an accent colour to a room will instantly harmonise the space. In this dining room, a stunning blue rug and robin’s egg fridge makes a mark on a monochrome background.
An appreciation for the beauty of nature remains right in style, with new botanicals in the form of leaves, vines, and a variety of forest creatures taking the place of last season’s floral blooms.
Botanicals make for excellent wallpaper accents for a feature wall or for adorning the entire room, bringing a soothing, calming presence to the space. Other ways to embrace the trend include prints on soft furnishings, lampshades or framed artworks.
Tribal, eclectic influences from across the world meet to provide a rich and eclectic cultural tapestry for design inspiration that is introduced in subtle, attentive ways to the modern space.
The trend allows for experimentation in the form of mismatched furnishings, Aztec inspired prints, layered rugs and plenty of natural fibres.
A big look on the latest fashion runways, monochrome can be translated into the home in a chic and stylish way that really packs a punch! Build the space in a rainbow of tones – blacks, greys, whites and neutrals in various prints, textures and heights.
Monochrome tones work particularly well in the bedroom for a totally laidback, dreamtime feel.
