Wouldn’t You Though

4 Jul 2016

Hero, over at Muddy Bucks & Oxon, has been at it again.  Honestly, she’s like a magpie when it comes to spying out neat stuff.  Check these out…



This is mindfulness, Vogue style. Never mind those fiddly geometrical colouring books, now grown-ups can go back to their coloured-pencil collections with fashion still firmly in mind.


Vogue Goes Pop is full of hand-drawn designs inspired by the mag’s fashion pages during the Fifities, including depictions of ball gowns and cocktail dresses from Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Chanel.


You can even turn designer by creating your own Vogue cover.


Frankly I’ve never seen a colouring book that couldn’t be trumped by a large glass of wine and a re-run of Pride & Prejudice — but if doodling helps you find your happy place, fill your designer boots.

Vogue Goes Pop, Conran Octopus, £10
