A sneak preview revealed day-wear pieces in white and navy linen, including skirt front trousers, wide leg trousers, a Mongolian style jacket and a few jersey dresses with his signature spirograph print, and knits but no evening wear. The cape-sleeved jacket and pleated skirt shown above, for example, would have cost pounds 525 from a boutique, but it will be pounds 250 all-in from the sale. Interested? If you are, bear in mind the average price for a jacket is pounds 170, a skirt pounds 70 and a pair of trousers about pounds 85. These prices, while hardly a snip, are not to be sniffed at; I looked in at French Connection on Saturday and there was, as usual, some lovely things to buy, in particular a gorgeous pleated skirt for pounds 80. I nearly bought it, but the possibility of having a Hussein Chalayan pleated skirt for pounds 70 was infinitely more appealing, and frankly, an opportunity not to be missed.
