Lisa Stickley-Levis left her own brand label, Lisa Stickley London, a little over a year ago and has started all over again with a new brand, Betty & Walter. It's inspired by her Aunty Betty and Uncle Walter, whom she describes as:
"Uncle Walter often wore chestnut coloured trousers with a brown belt around his waist, white or yellow shirt and a knitted tank top. Aunty Betty had a fondness for red setters and loved taking them for long walks in the barley fields, then home for tea and a neat slice of marble cake which she would eat whilst wearing her flowery apron."
I like the sound of Aunty Betty and Uncle Walter v much! And I love the packaging of Lisa's new range of toiletries and cosmetics for Boots. I can't vouch for what the products themselves are like as I haven't tried any but how enticing are the 50s-esque patterns? The colour palette is fun, retro & quirky and I really like the contrast of the pink flowers against the black and white woven background.
The toiletries are just the start for this new brand as Lisa promises accessories, bags and textiles will be added in the Spring. AND she's launching a fashion lifestyle brand, Ada Rose, soon too! Can't wait to see it. I'm a big fan of Lisa's style of illustration and her patterns, but it feels a little weird to admire the Lisa Stickley London brand knowing that she no longer has anything to do with it, and isn't creating the brand's designs.
