Sonia Rykiel AW13 ad campaign

(Then nip over to Net-a-Porter to get the look…)

This summer’s big takeover has been all about denim, from the newly-opened £6 million Denim Studios on the third floor, to the fantastic windows depicting the nuances of every denim tribe you can think of. Here’s what I learnt from the personal shoppers and alterations team at my recent Disneyrollergirl Denim Workshop. (more…)
