Betty magazine – our new best friend
While we greatly value the freedom and timeliness that online publishing affords, there remains something so romantic about curling up with a beautiful magazine.
Despite protestations to the contrary, print is still very much alive and kicking in many quarters and is a particularly treasured affordable luxury among those who love independent design and alternative lifestyles.
Creators of the bi-annual magazine, Charlotte Jacklin and Charlotte Melling, champion independent designers and cult favourites, putting their own spin on current trends and by-passing the high street giants. The result is beautifully styled shoots that manage to be aspirational yet entirely relatable and realistic.
The summer issue sees covetable prints from Orla Kiely, Paul Smith and Charlotte Taylor brought together in the Daisy Daisy story, timeless seaside styles showcased against Whitstable’s very British backdrop and beach towels used as the canvas on which to paint retro beach beauty.
Alongside these fabulous fashion features sit mouthwatering recipes, interviews with inspirational creatives and tips on everything from life skills to travel, all packaged up with original illustrations and distinctive design details that make us proud to call ourselves Bettettes.
The summer 2013 issue of Betty magazine is available now priced at £6.
