The Fashion Audit: Mr Groomed / Dead Darcy / Peter's People

What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...

We love ... Mr Groomed

Hot on the tail of the new beauty offerings for sale on its sister site, mrporter.com is selling grooming products. Best for those for whom Lynx and Nivea just won’t do; expect to find luxury offerings from the likes of Czech & Speake, Le Labo and Aesop.


We’re not sure about... Dead Darcy

Not strictly fashion related, but news of the demise of The Audit’s fave modern literary heartthrob in the upcoming Bridget Jones book is very bad. But really it’s good old Bridge we love, big pants and all.

‘Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy’ by Helen Fielding, £9.49, out 10 October, amazon.co.uk

We’re buying... Peter’s People

Peter Jensen is well known for his playful creations; a bunny drawing became his brand’s logo. Now the designer has teamed up with the ethical clothing brand People Tree on a collection that features – you guessed it – his signature bunnies, oh, and also a few bears. Which  are you?

From £55, peopletree.co.uk

We can’t wait for... Cheeky chops

Cowshed is the go-to brand for those in need of a little TLC, and now it has a little sister. Cheeky Parlour opens next week in Shoreditch and, in addition to fast and affordable treatments, there’s an array of Cheeky products for sale, too. 

Parlour opens 16 October, Redchurch Street, London E2, urcheeky.com

We’re saving up for... Carried away

On reflection, with her flighty ways and terrible puns, Carrie Bradshaw may not be the best role model. But she understood the importance of a good pair of shoes or 300. My-wardrobe.com’s new, improved shoe boutique is enough to bring out the Carrie in  all of us.
