Cordite x

Pipped to rise back into fashion and with good reason: Cords, the seventies classic are back the spotlight with a modern day twist. Combine that with their rich, deep colour and you know they’re going to be a hit.

The company leading the charge in the corduroy revolution is Cords, catering for both men and women, tops and bottoms their cut is second to none.

With a Roman feast of sumptuous options..

And colours that truly work.

How to choose? May be lucky dip! You can’t really go wrong.

 E.L.V. Denim is a brand that demands a closer look: Their USP are sustainable jeans made from two pairs of vintage jeans which immediately knocks out two birds with one stone..
They’re naturally worn in…and they’re unique.


To be worn on the waist…or slouched on the hips: The choice is yours.

Old and New x

Kasia Zareba designed the Fossil porcelain collection based on inspiration from the imprints of fossilised plants .  The deceptive simplicity, the lack of symmetry and the feeling of movement all lead to a bullseye hit in the design stakes.

Definitely one for the lust list.

The Dirty Shirt x

The true version of sexy isn’t bandeau dresses and containment, in both the physical and metaphorical sense.  It’s suggestion and just the right number of buttons left undone. And what better way to achieve that than with the humble shirt?

Beans on Toast x

Just the name Toast takes on a whole new meaning when the temperatures start to drop and the smell of fallen leaves mixed with wood smoke permeates the air.

Their clothes capture that louche, appreciation of nature vibe: Loose cuts, soft textures, muddy palette.

If that’s not enough, not only do they do the best classic grey long cashmere cardigan.

But each one of their eleven shops has a shelf filled with books from customers and staff. Inside each books are hand written notes, explaining how the book has enriched the sharer. Visit a shop to share your own book and take one in return. Genius.

Size isn’t everything but beautiful design is: Meet the Newton milk and sugar jug, a gimbally exhibit of executed ingenuity.Separate and independent.

Or the perfect fusion of function and form.

Raise it up x

All I want for Autumn-slash-winter is a pair of Docs.

The reasons are multiple…

– Aesthetically pleasing

– A true classic

– One size fits all i.e. No different for either men or women.

Which is a very satisfying comment on life.

Because these boots were made for walking.
