Johnny Depp is never wrong (well, way too many Pirates of the Caribbean movies but no one?s perfect). Moscot, founded in a pushcart in New York in 1899 by great grandfather and family patriarch Hyman Moscot, but now in slightly more salubrious quarters on the corner of Delancey and Orchard, is the eyewear brand of choice for the super stylish.
And it's not just Johnny in his trademark Lemtosh; Ryan Adams and January Jones are rocking the Vilda, Justin Timberlake (is he super stylish?) the Nebb and Ben Harper the Zulu. We are delighted to be one of the very few stores in the UK with these super cool specs (and really delighted to be able to offer both sunglasses and frames for optical lenses).
Need we say more? Thank you to everyone who made the Silly Sale silly, funny, daft and hilarious. And big thanks to our lovely friends at Peagreen for the perfect space and the constant refreshments.
A week of hand techniques and local tradition at The Hambledon. Queene and Belle breathes Scottish heritage, using luxury yarns spun in Scotland. Consisting of hand finished pieces, layered with authentic vintage dresses and decorated using Italian chandelier crystals, antique silver charms and vintage ribbons, this is a collection of heirloom treasures of really exquisite and delicate beauty.
Dancers love Bloch ballet pumps because they?re specially crafted to the curvature of the foot, offering protection and sustainability through hours of dance and movement. We love Bloch and Baby Bloch because they are super cute, super comfy and super versatile. And this season they come in a range of delicious sweetie colours.
One of our season highlights is here - the arrival of the fabulous Just in Case collection, which this time takes the name of the song Aint No Cure for Love by Leonard Cohen. Apt perhaps because once again we've fallen for the label's mature and elegant flamboyance.
The gorgeous skirts are as full as ever - our absolute favourite being the Cita tulle ballerina style number. The beautiful quality fabrics are back - draped silks, thick velvets and heavy satins. The signature prints are all abstract watercolours, photographic and floral, and the knitwear super-deluxe, featuring the Alba ruffle and Elba sparkly lurex. All of this comes in a palette of beautiful subdued shades with highlights of citrine mustard and bottle green among the blacks, warm browns and soft pinks.
Womenswear is looking especially lovely at the moment thanks to Laura, our VM. Themed on the distinctive style of Charleston farmhouse and the Bloomsbury Group, we have a corner of the upper floor adorned with faded photographs, scores of music, dogeared books and other memorabilia harking back to the bohemian paradise that was Charleston. Altogether a very fitting backdrop to our new autumn winter collections due to be released over the coming weeks.
