Mary Katrantzou x Current/Elliott

The prize for the coolest collaboration of the season has to go to Mary Katrantzou for Current/Elliott. Katrantzou has put her stamp (quite literally, as the prints are postage-inspired) on a range of great pieces by the LA denim label, resulting in a collection of lust-worthy separates, perfect to be worn on their own or mix and matched with other items from the collaboration . The full 24-piece collection has just been revealed and will land in stores soon – […]

Chinti and Parker launch neon collection exclusively at Matches

Chinti and Parker launch neon collection exclusively at Matches

Alex Loves’ favourite knitwear label Chinti and Parker have just launched 9 neon pieces exclusively to Matches. I think these sweaters would make a really cool alternative to the cringy Christmas jumpers. The neon stars or hearts are still festive, but can be worn any other day of the year too. Win-win. You can (re)-read my interview with Chinti & Parker here, or just shop the exclusive Chinti & Parker for Matches neon collection below:

Matches launches exclusive Roksanda Ilincic collection

Matches launches exclusive Roksanda Ilincic collection

Roksanda Ilincic and Matches have gathered forces to create a gorgeous capsule collection of 5 evening dresses, landing in stores (and online) tomorrow, just in time for the party season. Ilincic is of course well known for her glamourous cocktail dresses, so she revisited her archives and chose some signature dresses which she updated with new colours, like jade and different blues. They’re all magnificent – and quite limited, so there’s very little chance of bumping into a doppelgänger at […]

Outfit Post: Helloooo winter!

Outfit Post: Helloooo winter!

I am probably one of the few people around who is terribly excited the hot weather is finally over. First of all, because the sun is not my friend, second of all, because I’ve been dying to take my new Osman Yousefzada wintercoat out for a spin!

This is by far the nicest coat I’ve ever owned – navy, wool, oversized A-line shape, handy little pockets and 3-quarter length sleeves. The design is so beautiful and delicate, you can almost just wear it as a dress.

Best of the rest… the final sales!

Best of the rest… the final sales!

The end of the winter sales is upon us, and some real great bargains are still to be had. I’m not much of a sales shopper – by the time the sales come round I’ve already been staring at these clothes for a whole year, so I want NEW SEASON, is that so wrong? – so the only time I splurge is when it’s classics! Pieces that don’t really scream trends or seasons are worth buying in the sales, because […]
