Think of Roxy Heart and cool surfer-wear and snowboard gear may spring to mind. But now the label has teamed up with London-based artist and fashion designer Zakee Shariff to create a capsule collection that hits stores this week. Available throughout the UK, the launch also coincides with a unique pop-pp shop at London's The Shop at Buebird store. Inspired by the Steve Miller song Fly Like An Eagle, the first collaboration of many to come for the brand features floaty silk tea dresses and blouses in delicate red and blue prints and a selection of laid-back cotton dresses with eagle prints and super-soft cashmere harem pants – plus footwear. Now, we were spoilt for choice but we just had to give you the heads up on this butter-soft leather jacket in blood red – a welcome ray of colour in our otherwise all-black wardrobes!
