paper tiger iphone case by harper & blake

Design with Harper & Blake (#DesignWithHB) is a campaign aimed at bringing you our latest original designs weekly all influenced by the world around us, taking final form in our two contrasting alter-egos, Harper & Blake.

Our first print of the week has been specifically created for Harper; taking inspiration from pearl rings and all things sophisticated. ‘Folio Polka Phone Case‘ is a print of beauty looking as luxe and polished as its muse herself! Focusing on the unexplored area of polka dots this pretty little case is one to be admired by all, even if you’ve got a little Blake inside you! Working digitally, Harper & Blake Print Designer, Cassandre Desbonnets added her usual stylish touches of textures, golden outlines and monochrome tones!

Our second print of the week, ‘Paper Tiger Phone Case‘ is 100% Blake all over! Using collage textures as its primary inspiration, this design follows on from our previous predators collection but adding an arty aesthetic, bright colours and an overall experimental twist. Created with a mix of methods, hand drawing, layering, digitally printing this case is for the bold, the bright, the little bit abstract. This case is for Blake!

We’re in love with both of this weeks prints, we just can’t decide between the two! Are you a Harper or a Blake?

Harper & Blake Butterfly iPhone CaseDesign with Harper & Blake (#DesignWithHB) is a campaign aimed at bringing you our latest original designs weekly all influenced by the world around us, taking final form in our two contrasting alter-egos, Harper & Blake.

This week we have two very exciting prints to share with you, bold, bright and beautiful we’re bringing a little bit of summer to your look with this week’s ‘Glossy Butterfly’ and ‘Woven Wood’.

Something new, this week’s ‘Glossy Butterfly’ iPhone case comes under both Harper and Blake personalities – who’d have thought that would ever happen?! Due to its realistic muse, bright colours and overall the simplicity of this delicate design we just couldn’t choose who it would fit best! Complimented with a glossy finish in the print itself, this accessory is one to bring summer but texture to any outfit.

Our second print for this week, ‘Woven Wood’ iPhone case is one clearly created with Harper in mind. Taking inspiration from the artist Josef Albers, geometric compositions, textures and tones were all key in the birth of this minimalistic lovers dream. Exploring classic print techniques; mixing stripes and checks the simplistic structure of this design is what makes it so unique. Wooden textures contrasting with monochrome and a splash of colour defines Harper’s style. Simple, clean cut and stylish. This case is definitely on my wish list!

The second design we bring to you this week is Around the Circle iPhone Case, a colourful print with a playful touch it takes inspiration from all things summer. Although simplicity is key, the colour blocking design really packs a punch with its off balanced layout and contrasting colour scheme making it the perfect piece to add life to an overall look.

Harper & Blake Stylist: New Arrival Must-Haves

So if you follow our Harper & Blake Stylist- Sophie then you’ll know she’s the ultimate minimalist channeling everything Harper. Here she returns with her guide to achieving her signature style with her favourite Harper & Blake new arrivals!

Living by the fashion law of Black, White, Beige, Grey my wardrobe is one where accessories are key to achieving my signature look so when I first saw the Harper & Blake AW16 Collection I couldn’t wait to get my hands on half of it!

My favourite accessory at the moment, a simple scarf can bring together any outfit by taking it from ‘just thrown on’ to ‘styled and sophisticated’. From double wrapped around the neck to tied to the handle of your staple handbag, a scarf is the perfect accompaniment for adding colour, detail and style.

The Harper ‘Octopus Print Silk Scarf’ is my favourite of the season, the unique print matched with its silk finish makes this my ultimate staple; sophisticated, complex and luxurious! Teaming with a white shirt/ black suit combo, the detail from this simple accessory adds the perfect amount of femininity to a very masculine, yet one of my favourite final looks. And who says scarves are just for wrapping around your neck saving you from this awful weather? Hang off one shoulder and knot at the other, like a side cape of sorts- what’s the point of having one of these gorgeous scarves if you’re not going to show off its pretty print!

Another of my new arrival must haves is the Zebra Print iPhone case in Monochrome. My secret obsession in terms of fashion has got to be a bold animal print, so when there’s one in monochrome it was as if it’s made for me! Strong, detailed yet minimal this case is one definitely going on my wish list, if you’re a fan of this then definitely take a look at the Harper & Blake Leopard Print case, an accessory I’m never seen to be without!

How To Style: Winter Scarves

Wrapping up warm is essential this season as the weather starts to take a turn for the worst so for this weeks ‘How To Style’ guide we’re bringing you the best ways on how to find and wear the perfect winter scarf.

Although Harper & Blake’s collection of silk and chiffon scarves are to die for, this season we’re looking for something a little more wooly and a little more warm.
