Miss Selfridge at Coachella 2011

Whispered by The Clothes Whisperer

 

 

It's that time of year again--the grass is full-blown green, the sun has come out to play on the rainy isle and the days are getting longer and longer. Festival season, the pride and joy of the so-called "Great British Summer" is just around the corner. Which means, I'll be teaming up again with the reigning festival queens of the high street, Miss Selfridge, as the motley crew of musicians, fashionistas and revellers in general packs up and moves from green pitch to pitch. It kicks off with an exclusive from Coachellea, where the eponymous music and arts festival is underway. 3 of Miss S' formidable buyers took up the tortuous burden of hopping a plane transatlantic to check out the California-based festival and hunt down inspiration for future Miss S collections. When the girls return, TCW has been granted an exclusive interview to pick their brains as to how they maximized this diligent "research" trip, i.e. how festival-spottings can translate directly to design and buying. But in the meantime, to kick it all off, here's a wee teaser of a video showing the girls gearing up for their Californian escape.
