Debenhams Christmas Collection

We're totally in the Christmas spirit this week at P&C - even more so now we've spotted Bec's beautiful collection in Debenhams!

Featuring super cute winter characters with colourful foliage detail, we're sure this lot would go down a treat at any festive table.

We especially have our eye on those salt & pepper shakers - what cuties!

Mini Trend!

Terrazzo tile inspired prints have slowly been taking over
our Pinterest feeds, and we don't mind one bit!

Popping up on everything from jewellery and stationery to homewares and prints, 
we love this style as a fun alternative to confetti prints.

 We've taken things a bit more traditional for our final halloween
mini trend, but with a cool and minimal edge. 
Think simple mark making, minimal colour pops in orange 
or chartreuse and gold foil accents.

Happy Halloween!

Mini Trend - Natural Beauty

Understated but so pretty, this trend takes us from the hazy days of summer
into the beginning of autumn, bringing the outside in with displays of foraged fallen leaves
and prints based in nature.
The soft and delicate patterns have hints of autumnal mustards 
and browns, and florals are interspersed with bare branches. Lovely!

Colour Me Happy!

Today's palette inspiration is a colour match made in heaven!
Fuscia pink paired with yellow ochre packs a serious punch .... mix in a dusky
grey and some soft neutrals and we're on to a winner.

Summer seems to have disappeared slightly here in the UK, whatever the weather, there's nothing like a trip to the big apple to brighten our day!

We've rounded up the guys... and even managed to persuade the dogs and bears to travel together nicely!

P&C will be exhibiting at Printsource on the 8th and 9th August, at Hotel Pennsylvania. We'll have an array of shiny new artworks across baby, kids wear, interiors, stationery, fabric and much more, all inspired by the latest trends.

We hope you'll pop by so we can make your day a little brighter too!

As a studio full of lovely ladies we know a thing or two about girl power, and this mini trend 
is the perfect reflection of that. 

With fun illustrations showing women of all kinds, this is one trend we're hoping will stick around.

Who runs the world? Girls!

Kate Pugsley is an illustrator we’ve admired for quite a while, so when we saw those gorgeous embroidered kitties we did a little squeal! Kate has collaborated with italian brand Lazzari on this collection of fun prints, including one featuring her signature fashion girls. We love this awesome combo of illustration and fashion and would love to get our hands on and of these fab shirts. New studio uniform perhaps?
