The Fashion Audit: Peter Pilotto, Nails Inc, Merrell, KARL by Karl and out of season swimwear
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for
We Love: It's a wrap
Beautiful textiles and Liberty of London historically go hand in hand, so the department store is the perfect home for the London design duo Peter Pilotto to debut its exclusive silk scarf collection. £195, liberty.co.uk
We're not sure about: Twinkle toes
The Audit is usually all for a bit of kitsch embellishment, especially at this time of year ("the flashing earrings are a bit much, you say?"). But even it must admit that Nails Inc's bedazzled toenails are the wrong side of gauche – especially when prices start from £120.
We're buying: Take a hike
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the hiking-boot impresario Merrell has launched an Originals collection. A prime example of a recurrent men's fashion theme, utilitarianism, 'Wilderness Canyon' is available in a run of just 30 from that temple of wonders, Dover Street Market. 020 7518 0680
We can't wait for: KARL by Karl
This collection really is the essence of the design king's rock'n'roll personal style, right down to the over-sized aviator shades and fingerless leather gloves. The predominantly black and white collection, which lands on net-a-porter.com on 25 January, aims to make luxury accessible with prices starting from £52.
We're bookmarking: Shacking up
Finding a bikini for an exotic out-of-season jaunt can be tricky, but a new site aims to make the process stress free with pieces from more than 50 chic summer and swimwear names, such as this Roksanda Ilincic bikini. £29, thebeachtomatoshack.com
