Osborne & Little adverts

I love the fabric sections of interiors magazines especially where stylists wrap things in fabrics or show them in unusual applications. Osborne & Little adverts are now so legendary that they had an exhibition at their shop on the Kings Road of some favourites to celebrate 40 years in business in 2008. I would have loved to have seen it.

Ambon, Mandau by Osborne & Little

The birdhouse ad featuring the Serang silks is a recent (2oo8) favourite of mine. The Ambon fabric has a lot more texture than the detail shot above would indicate and the Mandau stripe is shown in purple and pink / green on the ad but this is my favourite colourway above - very classy in my view.
