This year, both b Store and SOAR presented their collections at the Home House on Portman Square. B Store's spring 2009 collection is "inspired by a picnic on the secluded Temple Island in Henley on Thames" and has "a quintessentially English quality." Take note of the straw boaters by Christine Bec and the rolled cuffs. SOAR's spring 2009 collection encompasses Tim Soar's minimalist approach, but with the addition of prints. Both lines will be available at b Store London during the spring.
