The Fashion Audit: The Village Bicycle, Speedy, Kabiri, Essex Fashion Week, Asos' White Collection

 

 

We can't wait for... Sharpen your elbows

The "fashion editor only" sample sale is fast becoming a thing of the past as boutiques fling their doors wide and spread the love to all-comers. The Village Bicycle is one such shop, and is doing so later this week at two London locations – one east, one west. How very democratic. 3-7 October, imavillagebicycle.com

We're saving up for... Speedy indeedy

They say don't mess with a classic, but really what do "they" know anyway? Louis Vuitton's famous Speedy bag has been wrought in leather for the first time this season. There's a host of colours to choose from, but this juicy berry shade is deliciously autumnal. £1,420, louisvuitton.co.uk

We love... Jewellery box

From statement costume pieces to delicate whispers of rose gold, design duo Cabinet's modern/antique approach to jewellery results in a collection of covetous pieces that is new to treasure-trove boutique Kabiri. From £49, kabiri.co.uk

We're not sure about... EFW

The fashion elite is pretty tired after a solid month of visiting the world's coolest capitals, otherwise The Audit is totes sure that the latest instalment of Essex Fashion Week later this week would be the very next stop on the itinerary.

We're buying... Whiter than white

There's something very Scandi-chic about Asos's new White collection. Designed by in-house stylists Michelle Rafferty and Richard Sloan, the largely charcoal, white and blue collection is heavy on leather and denim pieces of an androgynous bent. Shirt £38, asos.com
