Stripes appeared in abundance on this season's runway circuit. Evoking only dreamy images- of stylish lines of deckchairs along the French riveria, scrumptiously sticky slabs of rock and other rainbow coloured candy, fun-promising festival big-tops and fruit pastel lollies- the stripe is an emblem of summer (though the maroon in Zara's striped mini will take you through to Autumnal days). Zara Home's picture frame is no doubt influenced by Marc Jacobs' sleek monochrome silhouettes, while Pompom & Twiddle's adorable milkshake straws are the simplest yet sassiest way to jump in on the 'walk the line' craze.
