This painting is the sequel to the ‘EP Addiction’ ( scroll down). A long time devotee of the Easton Pearson label,¬† I put on this limited edition brocade coat and I am again transported to a more glamorous world. Four months ago Pam and Lydia announced they were closing their shops and discontinuing their fashion line. I did feel bereft – is this the end of my addiction?
