I love London as much as the next person, but ...

... is this too much?

It seems that British high-street favorite, Oasis, has jumped on the #loveLondon/#London2012/Olympic mania and released their own little, London-inspired collection, which includes this London City Scape shift dress (£70) above.

Here's a closer look at the pattern:

What do you think?

I'm not entirely convinced the pattern works - at least, not as a shift. Maybe if it was on a vintage, flared skirt day dress instead? Also, I'm just not sure how I feel about having the O2, of all things, poking out of my chest. The fact that every landmark is drawn, literally, on top of each other, just highlights the overcrowded aspect of this city and kind of gives me a panic attack just from looking at it. Breathe. Breathe.

What I do like, however, is the pattern featured on a tote bag or a notebook - both of which are available from Oasis as well.

Bottom line is, I won't be hitting the stores for this any time soon.


  1. I like the pattern as curtains or a tote bag. I don't think it works as a dress. :)

  2. I actually have cushions at home that have a similar pattern, Caissa!
