Calvin Klein by Raf Simons unveiled



Calvin Klein By Appointment

The first looks for Calvin Klein by Raf Simons and Pieter Mulier have been unveiled. A newly created By Appointment line of 14 made-to-measure pieces were revealed on Instagram, an eclectic array of gowns, separates and tailoring designed to show the breadth of availability and that Calvin Klein isn’t just about “iconic underwear and jeans”.

Underpinning the collection is an Americana theme celebrating cheerleaders and debutantes, and the By Appointment collection is aimed at anyone (with money), not just celebs and V.I.Ps. Revealing a few of the look book images on Instagram in tile formation, there was still a nod to the most famous CK creation of all, a pair of logo waistband tighty whities.

Me? I’m all about these red tailored boy-cut pants. Need to see more please…

Buy it now: a polished peasant shirt



Polished peasant shirt

I’ve been tasked by a fellow blogger with finding a more affordable dupe of my beloved Atlantique Ascoli peasant shirts.There aren’t many to be found because part of the cost of an Ascoli (around £500) is due to their fabrics – starched bright white custom-made cottons. And they’re fairtrade too.

But I did come across some great polished peasant shirts on my press day rounds. Whistles and Toast in particular tick the boxes for a relaxed shape with enough sophistication to keep them out of sloppy boho territory. (Tip: make sure you iron them.) They’ll be dropping in stores in the coming weeks. & Other Stories is another good call for elevated peasant blouses that hover around the £50 mark. If you have more to spend, Isabel Marant, A.W.A.K.E and Frame are worth a look too.

The trick to keeping things polished is what you wear it with. So tailored trousers, smart boots and a standout watch (a red Hermes Medor?!) would be my choice.

Gentlewoman style: The Cartier Panthère watch is back



Cartier Panthère watch relaunch
Cartier is reviving its Panthère watch, last seen adorning a Joseph-sleeved wrist in the 1990s. Interesting because it appears sales of traditional watches are enjoying a slight upswing in popularity. (Well, at least they’ve stopped tanking – no pun intended.)

I’ve always loved the simplicity of trad, square-faced watches. They’re understated and go with pretty much anything. Clearly, we wear watches as jewellery now, rather than strictly as timepieces, and that’s the approach Cartier wants to take with its relaunch when the Panthère goes on sale in June. The watch (originally launched in 1984) will be offered in yellow, pink or white gold as well as more decorative options such as pink gold interwoven with black enamel. If you’ve never come across a Panthère before, it’s a stunner. Delicate but not fussy, with slinky links that feel as light as air.

In an attempt to upsell to attract a younger customer, Cartier recommends casually layering it with those other iconic pieces, the Love bangle or the Juste un Clou. Well of course it does…

Quote of the day: Kim Jones



Louis Vuitton X Supreme

“Youth is key now, especially in China. I was in Beijing a week ago. We had a launch of a store and from the time I went last time three years ago, the customer’s completely changed. They used to be old men, now it’s young twentysomethings, so it’s important to make them excited.”
Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director on his Louis Vuitton X Supreme collab for AW17, WWD

The Louis Vuitton X Supreme line will go on sale at select Louis Vuitton stores on July 17.
