Inspiring colours, textures and patterns always catch the eye of our intrepid creative director Polly Dickens. And her recent holiday in Vietnam was no different.
‘I’m a passionate cook at home so I’m always drawn to markets when I travel,’ she says. ‘This market in Nha Trang, Vietnam, was a real highlight of the trip. I spent hours walking around and talking to people, finding out how to use ingredients I hadn’t come across before. From the produce itself to the stallholders’ patterned clothing, I saw inspiration everywhere. I never know how the colours and textures will feed into my work, but it’s such a pleasure just looking.’
