Classic Cashmere x


 (Agnona cashmere sweater, Emanuel Ungaro trousers)

Classic cashmere, that into autumn staple…soft, warm..but still light.  But there are two important questions: Are you a round neck or a Vee girl? And do you love your inner fifties goddess or does an inner eighties over-sized boyfriend jumper call your name?


Me? It’s eighties all the way with a tantalising vee..this one from Equipment is pretty damn perfect.

The essential colours: grey and camel..

But blue is cool..


(J Crew)

And who can resist the pastels with their flower-like  nod to fading summer?



And white?..there’s always white, ready and willing to make a statement…

Choices, choices, choices….

Maria Grazia Chuiri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are producing the type of Valentino Collections that bleeds my soul.

I tell myself – it’s only clothes…but my heart knows better.

It’s as if they’ve stepped inside my head and cherry picked my favourite things: Blanket coats, proper boots, Doc shoes, loose but crisp, colours on the side of dusky..and handed them to me as a lighter than air, perfectly baked clafoutis.

The proportions make me smile with pure pleasure.


At first glance I thought this was a play on the boyfriend blazer..it is, but better – it’s a cape.

So clever.


How do they get it so right?


And then there is the Butterfly motif, Damien Hirst re-invented.

How understated can this be? And still pack a punch..

I need to lie down.
