What to buy from Ines de la Fressange X Uniqlo SS16

Ines de la Fressange X Uniqlo

Ines de la Fressange continues to crank out accessible Parisian classics for Uniqlo. In the latest collection I’ve spotted a great grey sweatshirt*, the perfect indigo jeans*, a very nice blue Oxford shirt and countless iterations of slim-leg chinos. There’s also a long sleeve prairie dress that I can’t image Ines (or me) wearing but it’s super-cool nevertheless.

If you want easy basics under £50 and have similarly Ines-like proportions (all the cuts do seem very slim and the trousers tend to be quite low waisted), then have a nose below…

*Update: Grrr, a couple of things are now sold out online but hopefully are still stocked in store. Otherwise, well y’know, eBay…?

I’m gobsmacked at all the independent British designers opening stores on Mount Street and nearby. I can’t help asking myself where all the funds are coming from? Simone Rocha is the latest, due to open her first store during London Fashion Week. The store, which joins Christopher Kane, Roksanda and Nicholas Kirkwood on one of the grandest shopping streets in London, will have a personal, creative look to reflect the romantic Rocha sensibility.

1. CELINE’S RETAIL WOW FACTOR

My first foray into the Mount Street store (above). Um, wow. The smell! The flooring! The merch! The ratio of sales staff to customer (3-1 on my visit)! At the till, mulling over a two-tone luggage Tote, was a Ghanian lady in full Vlisco-print gear, including headwrap. Oh to photograph her printed skirt against the patchwork marble floor tiles… But alas no, I got the feeling it’s a No Photos kind of store… (more…)
