If there was ever a time to buy shares in coffee, it was this month. Wired and designing like a BAT OUT OF HELL, this is the month some sneaky new designs made their way into Silmo 2015 . This is the 11th hour where you stand back, look at a collection – and scratch your head thinking, "is there anything I can do to make this BETTER!!??"

The answer is always "YES".

So, inbetween changing nappies – (yes I look after two children under the age of 3.5 years) 6 days a weeks – I ponder and I distance myself from reality to get a clear view on what will happen in the month of September, when Silmo hits. It all sounds very spiritual and meditative – but it works!

Here are some images that have inspired designs for Silmo 2015
