Art of the trench: Lahssan

The only benefit of having a dentist in Battersea is that the journey home inevitably involves the reward of a quick shifty in The Shop at Bluebird. In yesterday’s case, that ‘quick shifty’ amounted to a good 45 minutes. The buyers have upped their game by a huge leap this season and I’m told it’s looking even better for ss11.

I make no secret of the fact that I’m a big fan anyway. Maybe it’s that artfully presented mix of clothing (both obscure and established), books, furniture, magazines, music and knick knacks that always keeps my eyes darting in ten directions at once, but each visit allows for a new discovery. This time I fell in love with the clever trench coats by Lahssan. The capsule collection is simply a series of cropped trench coats with silk ‘fur-printed’ linings that feel beautiful and make for an interesting layering of textures and optical illusions. I couldn’t find much information online about Lahssan but I know he’s also stocked in Colette. I’d call that a name to watch…

    I've decided I'm going back to my roots & only shopping/browsing on Kings Rd next year plus Kensington & high St Ken. I think I will feel inspired and better stepping out of mainstream central London.

    I'll also spend less as won't be able to afford!! xx
