The boxes of carrots and the veggie pressed juices were a clue, the mild aroma of hay fluttering down the stairs on a sunny but cold day should have been the clincher, but it was still a surprise to see rabbits at Markus Furber. The stars of the show. Lets be honest, who could compete with cute bunnies hopping around, chilling out or nawing on a bit of carrot.
However the clothes were still worth a look on their own. Inside a two room fairy tale that had a lot in common with Beatrix Potter meets The Mad Hatter lay some gems. Here was a collection that you could have strolled straight out of the door and mingled with the passers by out in Waterloo Place.
Simple earthy tones, mixed with the occasional splash of colour, but all centred on natural style leaf and fauna print, this is a collection that come the autumn will have you clamouring to be inspired by. It was also clear while the pieces could be stand alone as shown here at the event, you could very easily transition them into a deeper winter wardrobe, they will clearly work with long sleeves, coats, and thick tights.
When the mild chill starts to slip into the end of summer nights, and that morning dew starts to rise as I stroll to the station, this is one collection I will be looking back to and using as my wardrobe inspiration. Well that and by then I expect to have a zillion rabbits, an entire army of bunnies hopping along beside me in my AW15 best.
