Penny Lane’s mantra in the 2000 film Almost Famous by Cameron Crowe reminds us to live in the present and appreciate all that is happening around us right now.
Yet each moment may also hold things future and present too. In fashion, inspiration is sought from the past, while simultaneously looking towards the future when forecasting trends.
Finders Keepers combine all of these elements in their ‘The Bright Side’ Resort 2012 collection. Capturing a unique gothic aesthetic while holding on to a vintage rock n’ roll vibrancy, ‘The Bright Side’ creates silhouettes that are light, textured and glamorous, evoked in a vibrant colour palette of neutrals and electric lime, green, neon fizz, gold and rose gold.

There’s no doubt that this collection embeds an Almost Famous, fearless glam rock chick attitude while being womanly and elegant.
