Fashion Audit: 21/11/2011
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We love: Give jeans a chance
Like free stuff and the warm glow of doing something good? Volcom will be collecting jeans and denim jackets to pass on to the Whitechapel Homeless Mission. In return you get a free cap, DVD or CD.
7 Earlham Street, WC2 020-7836 3353
We're not sure about: Violent lips
It's not the concept of a temporary lip tattoo that The Audit is aghast at, so much as the choice of designs. Purple cheetah print or the Union Jack seem rather niche when plain old pillarbox red would surely see the creators laughing all the way to the bank.
We're buying: A dashing pair
These rather smart shoes are a case of east London meets well, east London, as Shoreditch-based shoe company Hudson collaborates with Stoke Newington’s Dashing Tweeds on this mini-collection of handsome chukka boots and brogues in leather and tweed.
From £160. hudsonshoes.com
We can’t wait for: Polish one off
Entrepreneurial undergraduates from the Central Saint Martins jewellery course will be selling their wares at a three-day pop-up shop, just in time for Christmas. Proceeds from the sale will go towards the students’ degree shows next June.
From November 30, 2 Goswell Road Coffee Shop, 154 Goswell Road, EC1
We’re saving the date: Having a ball
With the breathless anticipation of a debutante, the first exhibition in the V&A’s newly renovated fashion galleries has just been announced. Ball- gowns: British Glamour Since 1950 will celebrate 60 years of gowns as exemplified by Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Erdem.
From 19 May 2012, £10, ww.vam.ac.uk
