The Englishness of English dress is a very interesting concept, especially as manifested during London Fashion Week.

Postcard from...Antwerp

If Bruges is the grand old aunt of Belgium with its lace shops, quaint canals and quiet afternoons sipping tea in medieval squares, then Antwerp is surely the hip young cousin. Students in edgy fashions traverse the pedestrianised streets on vintage bicycles. Hipsters congregate at the city’s many concept stores or understated bars of bare wood and strong beer.
