Behind the scenes - London Paris Copenhagen
Posted on February 02 2014
Mercantile London has been hitting the road/train/plane over the last two weeks, seeking out the new and checking in with our favourite brands to see the upcoming offer for Winter 14. First up was London...as expected colour and print was used to full effect on casual, easy to layer pieces.
Loved this cute styling of knitwear over a dot print shirt. Simple but beautiful
From London, we headed to Paris to visit our friends at Ba&sh and pick up some new brands to freshen the store mix
