ready to wear: by annalisa barbieri
EeE by gum, it's about time we had some menswear for all you chappies who write in with fragrant begging letters. Here we go then with a male supermodel wearing the pick of the spring threads. Flat-front trousers are still the shape to wear, and delicate colours like pale green and orange with beige. Everyone who came into contact with it went bonkers over the mint Katharine Hamnett cotton sweater, which is ridiculously expensive, I admit. But it has that lovely feel to it which begs a lover's head to rest on your chest.
