I Need this in my life!

On my latest visit to Denmark I went into SAS House in the Centre of Copenhagen, built in 1960 for the Scandinavian Airlines it is considered one of the architect Arne Jabcobsen’s masterpieces.  More than 50 years on the hotel has been completely renovated,only room 606 stands as it was originally commissioned, complete with the egg and swan chair. I was lucky enough to get to see room 606, what an architectural and inspiration!

Now I need one of these in my life, or my home!

Exclusive Interview with Olivia Burton

We caught up for a quick chat with Lesa and Jemma from Olivia Burton. We fell in love with them and their collection as soon as we met them.

Lesa and Jemma are the designers and founders of the much talked about British designed fashion watche brand Olivia Burton

When they couldn’t find a watch that fulfilled their need for style, Olivia Burton created their own. Having met on their first day at London College of Fashion they both have extensive experience in the fashion industry, formerly buying for the likes of Selfridges and ASOS.

Both obsessive about attention to detail Olivia Burton watches are affordable, wearable and wearable and bursting full of British style. The girls stress that affordability doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality. They use quality movements and the finest materials to ensure that each watch is expertly crafted.

If  appreciate good design and want something different then you will love these watches!

How did you begin working with each other?
We have been friends for many years, after meeting as students we went on to work for the same company within the fashion industry where we both were starting out our careers within buying. We always dreamt of starting our own business together and felt there was a real gap in the market for affordable vintage inspired fashion watches.

Why Olivia Burton?
Olivia Burton is named after Lesa’s great aunt who is a real inspiration both in her style and approach to life.

Where do you get the inspiration for your designs from?
We take inspiration from lots of different things – vintage, catwalk and nature. We like to fuse the old with the new to create a collection that is contemporary and fun.
