The Fashion Audit: Down-under designs / Denim digits / Skater style
Sunday 12 May 2013
We love… Down-under designs
Finders Keepers is an Australian label that only recently hit our radar but it has impressed with a mix of youthful and contemporary pieces at sensible prices. The new collection, Loved Ones, includes colourful separates, dresses and tailoring. From £50, harveynichols.com, selfridges.com
We're not sure about… Denim digits
Head-to-toe denim is not the easiest look to pull off, and gets even harder when you add cosmetics to the equation. The Audit is as fond of jeans as the next person but Nails Inc's new denim effect polish has pushed us over the selvedge. £19, nailsinc.com
We're buying… Skater style
If you love skating but are a little too old for skinned knees take inspiration from Sandro's T-shirt collection featuring Seventies skateboarding photography by Hugh Holland who will be signing copies of his book Locals Only at an event tomorrow. 7-9pm, Sandro, 6 Marylebone High Street, London W1
We can't wait for… Festival finds
Festival season is almost upon us and with the weather's unpredictability it's sensible to be prepared. Victorinox has used the expertise of British designer Christopher Raeburn to create a capsule collection of technical pieces including rainwear, bags, tents and even a Swiss army knife. From £38, victorinoxeditions.com
We're saving up for… Desert Dolce
Dolce & Gabbana has launched two new fragrances designed to sweep you away in the spirit of summer adventures. Great for those who like their fragrances deep and heady; choose from rich oriental spice or a mix of musky tones and incense. £170 each, harrods.com
