A Cosmic Print That Is Out Of This World

The night sky has fascinated me since I was a little girl. I have crystal clear memories of standing under a star filled sky, at the age of 6 during one of our many camping trips throughout France. We were in a remote part of the countryside and, put simply, I was star struck. How could the sky hold so many millions of tiny lights?

 

Even now, after every sunset, I look for my old friend, the moon each night before bed. Which is perhaps why I’m so smitten with Deborah Campbell Atelier’s latest collection!

 

With a love of turning art into fashion, Deborah Campbell Atelier’s Rae of Light print is inspired by the artwork of Fiona Rae and features a cosmic dusting of stars.

 

The soft, silky fabric is actually made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. And as I’ve said before, as long as people are still drinking water from disposable plastic bottles, the more I’d rather see them being turned into an amazing piece of fashion, than ending up in our landfills and oceans.

Much like the gazillion stars in our solar system, each piece is unique, with variations on the placement of the print. It really is a beautiful piece and I loved wearing it with jeans, heels and a cream blazer.

 

With the Rae of Light top re-awakening my enthusiasm for the cosmos, I’ve curated a cosmic collection (below) for those nights when the clouds inevitably get in the way of our stargazing!
