John Lewis Loved&Found Launch Event

We had a fabulous time yesterday evening attending the Loved&Found launch event at John Lewis, Leeds in collaboration with Leeds Art University.

Loved&Found is a stand-alone boutique for John Lewis’s favourite new and contemporary brands. Currently only available in Birmingham, Liverpool and most recently Leeds. There is also an online collection which features a selection of Toolally earrings.

Selected Femme’s range of suede sneakers became a focal point of the event with people swooning over their range of spring-appropriate footwear.

Scandinavian influenced fashion and art pieces were displayed throughout the space, creating a fun and inspirational shopping environment.

We discovered lots of new and contemporary fashion and lifestyle brands. All featured within the boutique alongside a specially-curated exhibition of art from the students at Leeds Art University.

There was so much spring styling inspiration showcased within the Loved&Found boutique. We loved People Tree’s patterned and pastel garments. Especially their Susie Floral Trousers and V&A Grafton Frill Dress.

Star Mela and Patternity were the two stand out brands for summer. Star Mela’s S/S collection is full of embroidered, beachy pieces whilst Patternity’s collection is full of patterns and Scandi designs.

Toolally was displayed throughout the boutique and it was fabulous seeing how the Loved&Found team paired the styles with different outfits and accessories.

As a special surprise for the Leeds Art University students, we took along our inspiration booklets so they could sketch their own designs that we will bring to life for them at our studio. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
