Fashion: One for the woad
If you've fancied yourself a latterday Bouddica or one of the barbarian hordes, here's a collection that might be of interest: Swedish denim brand Nudie is releasing a limited-edition range of woad pieces, dyed an intense and characteristic blue. The indigo dye has a chequered history, having been banned on the suspicion that it was poisonous and restricted only to those of rank, but now it's available to all – provided it doesn't sell out, that is. Exclusively at Liberty, nudiejeans.com/guado
