Cafes & Karen Brost

I spotted designer Karen Brost on her scooter! I love girls on scooters – maybe because it’s something I rarely saw in Toronto, but when I moved to London you see loads of scooters and even more in Barcelona. A girl with a dress, heels and zooming around London – so cool.
We decided to go for drinks at The Botanist on – it’s only been open for a short while but it seems quite popular & trendy. How nice to pass the time away chatting about Karen’s new Spring/ Summer 09 collection – Frill Seeker & Regal on the Riviera, while sipping on a Fresh Summer Breeze – fresh strawberries, natural cinnamon syrup and pineapple juice.
The KBL collection is very chic and has a subtle edge to it. Many of the pieces are quite sexy without being revealing – it’s all about the cut and the beautiful fabrics, oh and some of her prints are to die for. It’s the names that get me: Aphrodites Legacy, Grecian Rocker, Angel Face and Rock & Roll Riding Coat!
Me with the super cool & chic !

    I’ve just looked on her website, and her work is beautiful! She’s obviously not got the S/S on there yet, but I’m loving her modern take on some classic styles. Thanks for introducing her to me. Cx
