A week or so ago we looked at the new SS15 kids fashion prints at Boden, and today I thought I would showcase some of those spotted in womenswear. There is a super bold geometric print (above & below) used on bags and clothes, stylised graphic tulips, daintily drawn seed packets and vintage plate designs amongst other delights. Here are a few edited highlights and you will find them all online now at Boden.

And it is not just in women's wear that prints get a look in at Boden - some men's fashions are also making a pattern statement...

EASYART - relaunches as King & McGaw

The Art publishers 'EasyArt' are relaunching today under the new name King & McGaw. I was very kindly asked to look over their catalogue and pick out my top five favourite designs for their upcoming relaunch features. I chose prints by Inaluxe, Simon C Page, Ana Zaja Petrak, Ellen Giggenbach and very vainly made the 5th choice of design one of my own. To celebrate further here are some more lovely artworks that caught my eye online. All the designs are available as prints and canvases, and can even be sent out ready framed in a choice of colours.
