STORESNAPS - summer 2013

above & below : marks & spencer have also created a range of summer foods in packaging illustrated by kate larsen inspired by typical summer events such as fetes, dog shows, and the seaside.

I bought this bright summery bird scarf in a gift shop in Wiltshire last week, I loved the floral bird illustrations from disaster designs.
