Laura Ashley unveils its second limited edition Archive collection, offering original designs and prints from the 1970s reworked for Autumn/Winter 07. A unique resource, the Laura Ashley archive forms a vital part of the company’s heritage, providing inspiration for the brand’s distinctive fashion, home furnishing and accessories.

Model and singer Ruby Stewart, daughter of 1970’s rock legend, Rod Stewart, exclusively models the latest Archive and mainline fashion collections, in an up-to-the minute interpretation of the eponymous founder’s instantly recognisable style.

Laura Ashley’s iconic 1970s designs are re-visited in a winter wardrobe collection of dresses, separates, coats, knitwear and accessories. Organic cotton has been used to create key printed pieces, including a thistle print smock top and sweet rocket print smock dress. A jumbo cord coat in burnt orange makes an autumnal highlight, accessorised with a selection of printed headscarves and quilted cord bags.

Laura Ashley’s charmingly eclectic home collections combine fabrics and influences to create a romantic and whimsical backdrop to the brand’s archive-inspired fashion, offering a uniquely British lifestyle mix.

Laura Ashley Archive will be available at selected key stores Nationwide and online from 22nd October 2007
