The Fashion Audit: Yves Saint Laurent’s Special Touche and Christopher Kane
Sunday 01 December 2013
We love… Cool cobblers
Laurence Dacade may not be a name you’re familiar with but you’ve probably come across her designs – she holds the esteemed position of shoe designer at Chanel. This season, she’s lending her talents to Zadig & Voltaire for a collection of footwear.
From £550, zadig-et-voltaire.com
We’re not sure about… Funky fragrances
While celeb fragrances are not exactly a new addition to the perfume market, they do seem to appear more frequently, in all their garish glory, at Christmas. Take, for example, this slightly scary new edition of Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday scent.
We’re buying… Special Touche
Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat, for those not in the know, is a cosmetics classic thanks to its legendary highlighting abilities. For Christmas, the brand has created a limited-edition collector’s version that will make receiving it even more of a joy.
£25, YSL Beauté, available nationwide
We can’t wait for… Christopher’s capsule
Christopher Kane is the golden boy of British fashion so news of an exclusive capsule collection about to drop at Net-a-Porter is music to our ears here at The Audit. The resort range is comprised of nine pieces in primary colours all made from lace.
Prices start at £250, available from 9 December at net-a-porter.com
We’re saving up for… Box of tricks
You’ll need to have been very good this Christmas to get a Harrods box under your tree. The pricey pressie contains a bevy of beautiful gifts, including a Valentino bag and Shaun Leane jewellery. £5,325, Harrods, 020 7730 1234
