French Connection is branching out into homewares, with it’s first collection due to launch at the end of March. So I’m giving you a sneak peeek. Alongside these candlesticks you’ll find bedding, textiles, ceramics and glassware all in lovely muted shades. Must say, I was mostly relieved to see that nothing bears the logo FCUK.

I believe the title means Siamese rhinoceros beetle or fighting beetle. It’s taken from photographer Emma Walker’s series ‘Assemblage of Improbable Insects’, which I absolutely adore. She’s also done ‘Assemblage of Beautiful Flowers’, which, as you might expect, focuses on flora and is just as eerily beautiful.
