Cleo Ferin Mercury's beautiful collars are among our favourite new arrivals - one fan described them as Chic AND fun, and we think that is perfectly apt!  The TLC gone into the production of each hand made collar shines through and they are the kind of item which puts a spring in your step and a smile on your face!  They are just £23 each, available online tomorrow, and we hope to have some more works in from Cleo soon.

The Fence Collective's beepy, enfant terrible record label titled De-Fence was set up by OnTheFly in 2006. Released yesterday, this double A side vinyl features new works by the great Malcolm Middleton (Arab Strap) and the illusive River of Slime (FOUND).  The List magazine named this single of the week in their review, and it's worthy of the praise.  Look out for them in a record store near you or check out the De-Fence shop to buy this and other amazin releases including HMS Ginafore, Viva Stereo, and the dance floor filler, OnTheFly himself.

A couple of us know Lu Flux from Edinburgh College of Art when she upcycled vintage fabrics into glorious smock style dresses and skirts, and hand knitted the most adorable 'fox stole' scarfs, for her final fashion design degree collection! It was undeniable even then that she was a talented lady so we thought we'd share with you some of her amazing, amazing work since graduating from the ECA. She has gone on to pattern cut for bernhard willhelm and has since been working and creating her own designs, which i hear are very popular in Japan!! Check out her website and blog for the cutest and funniest garments imaginable!
