The collection (Limedrop's fifth) offers the Limedrop aesthetic - clean lines and unique play on colour. Snakes and Ladders takes you back to childhood games and family holidays, with energetic blue, canary yellow and stripes, key to the yachting reference. Metallics coated linen, plasticised lycras and floral prints also feature in the collection.

The collection includes wooden jewellery accessories, originally created as a set of hanging mobiles designed for an exhibition at Milly Sleeping during the 2007 L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Some of the spare hanging pendants were made into necklaces and proved so popular that Limedrop has now developed it as a new line. The line also features metallic finishes and pop-out earrings.
