You may have noticed from most of my outfit posts that I am obsessed with a pretty collars and neck ties. There are lots of blouses with neck ties in high street shops at the moment - and I WANT THEM ALL!

But for something quirky and different, how about this, from our fellow indie retailer Hero&Cape?  When they asked me to collaborate with them and design a T-Shirt for their opening collection, I jumped at the chance!

Instead of illustrating a graphic for it, we came up with a clean design that was inspired by the style that I'm really in to at the moment. A cute Peter Pan collar graphic and a neck tie! On a T-Shirt! The T-shirt comes with a black bow neck tie brooch that I made for Hero & Cape. I can't wait to get the T-Shirt, and I hope to collaborate with them again in the future!
