The Spring and summer 2018 summary part 1

Dear Blog Friends... First of all I would like to express how deeply sorry I am for not being able to write in my Dear little blog... Time is sometimes not enough and as we have had a wonderful and very warm month of may our garden has been very thirsty and this takes a lot of time . Fruits and plants need a lot of love and care, just like my work and family...
 
But the result you get from all the time and love for the garden that you have spent is totally worth it... Here is the greenhouse in full bloom , this is for me the best place on earth to be in this time of year. It feels almost like you are getting your batteries charged when you enter here... for me atleast...
 
The Spring and summer Collection 2018 is now presented for my Sweet Customers and It has had an amazing acceptance ... I could not be more happy  ... And now with the knowledge that my sweet and faithful customers are out there spending happy times in My new designs makes me proud and joyful. Thank you from my heart Dear Customers and friends...
So this blog post will be a little like looking back at what this Spring and summer 2018 has looked like... Are you ready ? Oki , here we start...
 
 
Here My lovely model Vilma in the silk and satin Tunic dress I named Marie Antoinette... Perfect to wear over trousers or alone with a pair of heels...
 
 
 Marie Antoinette tunic dress here in silk shiffon with a lovely animal print in lovely shades of pink and nude...
 
The Collection continued with two different Biggie blouses in pure linen...
Here is Tournesol linen blouse...
 
 
Lovely bright yellow ... And here the other one in ice blue... I named it Bluebelle...
 
 
 
The Collection continued with this season's trenchcoat ... A must for every Spring and summer...
 
I worked with denim and gave it a more femenine appearance by adding some cute flounces to the arms...
 
 
Dear sweet Friends this was the first part of this looking back at this Spring and summer 2018... I am already looking forward to writing the second part... Maybe some of you are having vacations so maybe you all have more time to check in and take a look at my work... so maybe , just maybe it is a good thing that I am wiriting now... Now you also have more time for some blog reading... 
Happy thursday Dear Friends... There is more to come soon...

Garments and gardening...

Dear Friends! I hope that the month of may is starting with good enery for all of us... In this week that passed; I have been busy with getting my little boutique in a spring feeling environment , taking out all the old things with care as they go into hibernation now and filling it with new things and a lot of flowers to get the right Spring and summer feeling... 
 
All the seeds that we planted at the beginning of this year are also ready for a new Spring home ( pots) as they have grown into really lovely plants .
 
 
The next step will be to move them to our greenhouse... I hope we get a lot in this years harvest... 
 
 
Tomatoes , chilipeppers and strawberries are some of the things we hope to enjoy this summer... Nothing tastes better than freshly homegrown fruits and greens , like candy but healthy..
Between all the work that our home and my shop demands I have also  , as always, taken my precious time with my knittings and shifting between four different projects, and one is almost ready...Yayyy!!!
 
This week It was time to launch the Abigail shirt.
 
A Shirt with the sweetest fabric I could imagine... The lovely flowers over the soft cotton fabric with stripes in blue is a joy for the eye. I worked with a lot of details . Some in red as the one on the picture  . Amazingly, by putting in red details , like this zig zag stripes in red,  you highlight all the red flowers in the fabric...
 
In this one I added some green and you got another totally different look in this shirt. All the leaves highlight with the the zig zag stripes in green...
And finally in blue...
 
I am very happy with the result and now they decorate my window display....Next week I am preparing for the launch of this years tuniques. Long lovely blouses that you can use as a dress or over a pair of trousers...Stay tuned here or in my Instagram account , @andrealabbedesign. Facebook Andrea Labbé Design. Please go ahead and follow the pages if you enjoy them...Grateful!!!
 
Finally some pictures of this weeks sweet customers and friends of the boutique in my designs and creations...
 
Now time to continue some work in the greenhouse and then I am looking forward for some lazy hours in the sun...
 
Happy sunday Dear friends and thank you for following my work !

Happy Birthday Dear Little Shop of Mine ...

Dear Friends! May is already here and with it so many things that happen together this time of the year... It can sometimes feel a little exhausting to have to attend to everything that life this time of year offers... Days are brighter and the spirit to do joyful things increases for all of us in Scandinavia. It is like we have been in hibernation , we all bloom up like exotic wonderful plants reaching out for sun and warmth... 
I do not know about you but I sometimes long for the rain and grey days in the summer , I mean a really rainy day that obliges you to stay at home and light a fire.... In the summertime I can really long for that feeling....
The past week it was time to present some of this  spring and summers blouses... The first one out was the Consuelo Blouse...
The consuelo blouse is available in 3 different fabrics, this white and blue is sold out but it is still available in a red wonderful viscose fabric....
And in a black silk shiffon fabric with purple flowers...
I worked with a double flounce on the arm inspired by the many lovely flamenco dresses I get to see when I am in Spain... I think that you can find a lot from Spain in my designs as for me it is the Country where I love to be during our vacations ... Everything about Spain is inspiring... The food , the sun , the people , the colors , flamenco and of course all wonderful nature with flowers I could only dream of having here in my home in Sweden...
The second Blouse I presented in my shop this week was the Lily Rose tied blouse...
 
A blouse so feminine and preppy. I worked with two different fabrics in this blouse , both silk shiffon with satin details...
The black with the lovliest pattern of creme roses and the second one in purple with a crazy pattern with roses and all the colors that you can imagine...
 
Both blouses easy to dress up or down with skirts or trousers...
And finally the last blouse that arrived in the little boutique this week was the Thea Fleur Blouse...
A blouse available in two fabrics... The first one in a silk shiffon fabric with a pattern that reminds me of a painting... Take a closer look to the crazy arms... wide and full of flounces.The style of this blouse is also easy to dress up or down. Vilma ( my super model ) is wearing the blouse with a pair of jeans , add high heels and Cocktails here I come... :-)
I had the pleasure as always to spend time and get to know new customers this week. I am already looking forward to what this week has to offer in all kinds of ways that has to do with my work...
Here some pictures from happy moments in the boutique this week...
 
And lastly, here´s a picture of me packing in all of my shops´ external decoration after a wonderful working day....
 
The 28th of April was my shops Birthday and this year It celebrated 6 years of existence... I sometimes have to pinch myself to realize that it is true that I have had the wonderful pleasure to open my own , really only my own little boutique with my creations and that I have been able to persist for such a long time... It really does not feel as 6 years because it is like we always say - Time flies when you are having fun!!!
Happy Birthday Dear little Shop of mine!
 
A hole in the wall with my design... What more can I say... - Thankful so thankful...
 
I wish you all a happy continuation of May and stay tuned, for more is yet to come in this Spring and Summer Collection 2018 ! 
 
With Love / Andrea Labbé
