The latest from Baum und Pferdgarten arrives just as Victoria and Lucy return from Copenhagen mightily inspired by the beautiful girls from the Baum show pedalling off in their fabulous outfits. And that's the great thing about this collection. It's a bit rock and roll but you can still get on your bike. There's some petit pieces and some outsize pieces, all oozing the same style and wearability. We're particularly loving the cool colours against the warm textures. Slate blues with highlights of putty pink and acid lime. You'll need to pedal fast.
If you can't quit remember which winter knit you relied on before you discovered Goat's trusty Olive Knit Jacket, you'll be relieved to know it's here again. In classic navy, natural and grey. Perfect for throwing on over almost anything for instant warmth and style. Lucy's loving this season's super luxe buttons.
Never one to shy away from a bold print or heavy texture, Paul & Joe Sister return with tweed, brocade and paisley working their way into another collection of gorgeous dresses, blouses and coats. It's elegant and grown up, girly and romantic all at once. Heaven in a big girl's dressing up box.
And it really is as straightforward as that. Sticking to what they do best, Norse Projects deliver more of the stuff we love for AW12. Preppy sportswear meets high quality basics in a subdued palette of olive, grey and navy.
We'd been on the look out for a new European label for a while when Bellerose caught our eye. We wanted some of that continental cool but in clothes that didn't feel difficult or daring to wear. Bellerose have got it spot on. These are pieces you can easily layer up with the rest of your wardrobe, but that give an outfit an edge, a talking point even - lurex sweats, quilted sateen lined cardigans, fake fur jackets and best of all - "where did you get those?" sparkly socks!
The latest from Local is enough to prompt a late summer getaway. Beautifully embroidered cotton and silk pieces weather the last of the summer sun in style, slightly crumpled and faded the way we like them. Arrive home with a temptation knit thrown over and the transition couldn't be any easier.
We're all a bit giddy with the arrival of Chinti & Parker. Lucy's even declaring it her favourite collection of the new season. The perfect cotton basics are all here, as are the cashmere knits, playful stripes and polka dots (though they're blown up this time). The pallette of oatmeal, wintery white and deep navy makes us feel cosy and we're certainly welcoming new textures in heavy flannel and cable knit. But what's getting us really excited are the tiny little stars, trailing their way over the prettiest shirt, skirt and dress.
Look no further for the perfect silk shirt. 0039 Italy have it totally covered this season, from pussy bows and Peter Pan style to grandad collars. Here's betting they won't be hanging around long.
It's a collection that triumphed at London Fashion Week back in February and now that it's hanging on our menswear rails we can totally see why. Oliver Spencer has once again delivered garment after garment of beautifully wearable clothing. The trademark tailoring is ever present, as are the fanatstic shirts. But what marks out this collection is the colour, texture and pattern. Olive, red and ochre breaks up the navy, as do large checks, fine stripes, paisley, polka dots and tightly knitted Fair Isle. Layer up and look good.
Back for winter in super soft leather, Jack Purcell is our menswear sneaker of choice. Not only is it designed by a sporting legend (Jack was five times Canadian Badmington Champion), it totally trumps All Stars on comfort and personality with its cushioned footbed and iconic smile accross the toe. Rob's total no brainer for dressed down days.
