This is the final instalment in this run of Image Hoards. I hope they've been as interesting and inspiring for you as they have been for me. Let me know if you'd like to see more; I'm still collecting! :)
The set below pulls together tropical energy in a hard package; a flashy array of colours, along with leather and studs; it's pretty like a flower, but still mean like the jungle.

1-3: Christian Dior F/W 2010
If I were a fairy, these dresses would be in my tiny wardrobe. They are beautifully fantastical and romantic, with a tough of humour on top.
4: Dendrobeum Orchid
5: Missibaba moulded and hand painted leather orchid necklace
Missibaba is a South African based luxury accessories design label. As you may expect, they mostly deal in deliciously girlish and good-looking bags and belts, but they also make leather jewellery. Website link here.
6, 7, 9, 11 & 12: Burberry Prorsum F/W 2010
This runway collection has such a stunning mixture of textures, along with nicely contrasted acid and muted colours. I liked it so much I have included 5 pictures here!
10: Christopher Kane F/W 2010
Black, neon and kaleidoscope prints: so nice.
8: Roller by Andrew Zuckerman
13: Parrot by Andrew Zuckerman
Andrew Zuckerman is a photographer who crisply and cleanly documents many subjects, from age, places, music and creatures, to food-stuffs in motion. Visit his website and say OK to not stealing his pictures. (personally I think the disclaimer at the beginning comes across as a little paranoid, but perhaps that's just me...)
