last year’s looks: flutter by peter ting;

The position of my favourite High Street store has never really been up for grabs: with their gorgeous, girly styles and an emphasis on all my favourite prints – florals, butterflies and birds – it’s no surprise that I used to have a pretty serious Oasis habit. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that destroying my Oasis store card was one of the better things I ever did in an attempt to improve my credit rating.

Their latest collection is a collaboration with ceramics artist Peter Ting, and it’s got me all of a-flutter! Based on his in-flight hummingbird designs and lovely turn-of-the-season teals and turquoises, the Flutter collection features 11 pieces including a dreamy printed shirt, snuggly knits and Oasis’ famous printed trousers. Since Ting’s designs are more commonly found on tea sets it’s given the chain a chance to embrace the magic of the afternoon tea – although it was over breakfast, a week or so back, that the Glasgow bloggers were invited to the cash-sink that is Oasis Buchanan Galleries to preview the new collection.

I confess to a little disappointment that the collection doesn’t feature more dresses – how lush would that simpler aquamarine print look on a tea dress or jumper dress? – but there are plenty of lovely things to get your hands on in store and online. What are your favourite pieces?

      That is their downfall, and the reason I’m a bit afraid to try on the shirt (which is easily my favourite piece from the collection)… Got it bookmarked to see if it crops up in the sale at any point though!
