We love: Disco frocks
This Christmas L’Agence has upped its game with a holiday collection. Floor-length gowns, sparkly cocktail dresses and tailored tuxedos, all with the dancefloor in mind.
From £110, L’Agence 0800 123 400
We’re not sure about: Beauty binge
Online beauty retailer escentual.com assessed the spending habits of students and found at some universities beauty buys amounted to a staggering £1,000 a year. That’s a whole lorra lipsticks.
We’re buying: Britain's Best
Old-school British manufacturers and the grand dame of punk, Vivienne Westwood, aren’t the most natural of bedfellows. However, the designer is unleashing a range of collaborations to celebrate British manufacturing with the likes of Gloverall, Globe-trotter, Lock & Co and Johnstons of Elgin.
From £25, vivienne westwood.co.uk
We can’t wait for: Capitol Couture
If watching the new Hunger Games film isn’t enough for you, now you can dress like an extra: Net-a-Porter has teamed up with Lionsgate and HG costume designer Trish Summerville to create a luxury tribute clothing line. Think heavy leather, battle-ready pieces. Yikes.
Prices from £60, online from 21 November, net-a-porter.com
We’re saving up for: Hedi’s holdall
The very first bag to be designed by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent is very sensible and functional. The 24 Duffle bag was conceived by Slimane as the perfect travel bag for him and his celeb mates. Plus it’s unisex, so prepare for a custody battle.
£1,575, Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane, 020 7493 1800.
