The Fashion Audit: Slippery feet / Downton pouts / American bride
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
Sunday 29 September 2013
We love... Slippery feet
Flat-footwear-loving shoe shoppers will no doubt already be familiar with Pretty Ballerinas’ signature pumps. Following on in its comfy footsteps is Pretty Loafers, specialising in, you guessed it, loafers. The first collection features 58 fab designs that prove it’s hip to be flat.
We’re not sure about... Downton pouts
Downton Abbey made a long-awaited return last week, but far-fetched money spinners have not been so well received. We’re fairly sure early 20th-century ladies did not use lip gloss.
We’re buying... Missoni’s mates
Men’s denim is not exactly breaking any style barriers. But a new collaboration from Jean Machine featuring cosy knitted inserts and pocket details courtesy of Italian brand Missoni, promises to keep things interesting.
Jacket £340, thejeanmachine.com
We can’t wait for... American bride
Supermarket isn’t a term often associated with dressing for the big day, but the arrival of US store David’s Bridal with a behemoth Westfield Stratford location is set to change all that. It’s a one-stop shop for the entire party; bride, maids and mum.
Opens 3 October. davidsbridal.co.uk
We’re saving up for... Autumnal offerings
Erratic weather plays havoc with even the most sartorially settled, so accessorizing well is extra important as the seasons change. This beauty in autumn-appropriate claret is just the ticket.
£595, Moka, my-wardrobe.com
