Beloved British retailers Habitat had a hefty dose of bad news last Friday; especially upsetting for their fans given the excellent autumn/winter 11/12 collection they had recently previewed for the press.
When I attended the launch earlier this month, I was impressed by their approach to styling: lots of well-considered detailing which highlighted a good, solid collection of furniture, lighting and accessories. We knew they had been struggling for some time – but this seemed a collection that might just change things. With their future now uncertain (concessions in Homebase stores? Really?), here are some pictures from the day.
