The Fashion Audit: In the net / Burger Off / Wore in / Party time / Retrospective
Sunday 24 March 2013
We love… In the net
Not content with conquering the market for luxury clothing, online retailer Net-a-porter has now moved into the beauty business too. Customers can browse an edit of beauty brands such as Aesop and Chantecaille to add to their designer clothing purchases. £20, Ilia. net-a-porter.com
We're not sure about… Burger Off
Whilst The Audit will freely confess to a love of fast food, it doesn't extend to including it in our wardrobe. This burger T-shirt comes from Mr Gugu and Miss Go. It also does French-fry leggings – a snack too far. £24.99, truffleshuffle.co.uk
We're buying… Wore in
Converse has launched Well Worn, a collection of Chuck Taylors which come already-distressed to get that artfully battered look, an antidote to the blinding white box-fresh problem. The brand has announced Get Dirty too, an 11-city free music tour to celebrate the new collection. converse.co.uk/getdirty
We can't wait for… Party time
It doesn't take much persuasion to get shopping but the upcoming evening at McQ's Dover Street store has all the elements covered: including a complimentary cocktail bar, a DJ set from Spector and a very appealing 30 per cent discount on all purchases. 5-8pm, 28 March, McQ, 14 Dover Street, London W1
We're saving up for… Retrospective
The old and the new combine in very stylish form in this Fluo bag from Delvaux – the oldest luxury leather brand in the world, which was founded in 1829. This particular style was first created in 1958 but has been given a very modern update in neon pink. £2,665, doverstreetmarket.com
