Spring brings much that is good, and some that is less so. Here at L&F HQ we have a range of neuroses: needles, spiders, panthers lurking in the woodshed (no, truly), and my own particular non-favourite: anything that flaps. Birds, butterflies, moths – anything. So the return a couple of weeks ago of the nomadic swallows was a very mixed blessing. Heroic they may be, but the terror of being dive bombed by them while trying to get into the L&F office is genuine, and debilitating, and neighbours are tiring of being asked to come and get winged intruders out of indoor spaces. Our iconic Pheasant design is allowed because its wings are folded and the Bee because it’s standing. Can you guess what our Autumn launch will bring you?
