The Fashion Audit: Pearly Queens, Tents, Sneaker pimps and Beyond Retro
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We love: Pearly Queens
Those who are less than steady of hand will be able to hide any smudges and smears with this new at home "caviar manicure" in which tiny pearls are pressed into wet polish.
We're not sure about: Tents atmosphere
A novel solution to this rather wet "drought", this isn't the most fetching garment, but is designed to be pegged to the ground to create an ad hoc shelter from the elements. The Audit is holding out for the luxury version with built-in cushion and drinks holder.
We're buying: Sneaker pimps
When Kenzo drafted in the Opening Ceremony designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon it was surely aiming to refresh the Parisian brand. And this collaboration, exclusive to Harvey Nichols nationwide, between the LA based pair and Vans surely lives up to that expectation.
We can't wait for: Market value
The continuing homogenisation of the once delightfully seedy Soho is sad news for many Londoners, but this street market showcasing independent business with wares from fashion to furniture may help turn the tables of change.
27 May, 12 until 8pm, Dean Street, W1, sohofleamarket.com
We're celebrating: Above and beyond
Turning 10 is a big deal for Beyond Retro, the vintage clothing emporium with shops in London and Brighton plus a thriving online store, and to celebrate, it's hosting a series of events including burlesque, live music, competitions and more.
