It pays to open your eyes to new things. In this case, we checked out budding British designer Charlotte Taylor and found the entirety of our senses engulfed in a fresh kind of whimsy in this world where everybody claims THEY are different.
Chosen to be part of online retailer Anthropologie‘s well-curated Made In Kind project, Charlotte Taylor caught our attention with her Hummingbird Silk Maxi Dress. This paneled, yellow frock is made out of a mirrored motif of hummingbirds sipping nectar from trumpet flowers.
Her inspiration for her collection combines fishing, bee-keeping, and Japanese culture– disjointed, but somehow Taylor translates them in a way that makes us think that there is no better combination. Birds, robots, and Japanese tea houses make sense on her bright-coloured, floaty silhouettes.
There is a midi version of the Hummingbird, a cream sleeveless sundress with yellow hummingbirds in the same motif. In fact, there is also a version in the form of a multi-coloured blouse– both great pieces to go from a warm day to cooler but grey ones.
