This month I’m loving…
Chanel beige ballerina flats – to wear with the Gap boy-cut khakis I have in my mind but which don’t actually exist yet
Tracey Emin book – but maybe I should look at some of the books I’ve already got first
Loft apartment in converted factory – hmm dream on sweetie
Gold Le Sportsac tote (yes I do really need another bag…)
Old school denim jacket – time for a revival, no?
Today’s news: Banana Republic is coming to London – to the old Dickins & Jones store. I can’t say it appeals to me (a more spendy version of Gap? No ta) and it seems other people think the same. I wonder how it will do?
In the meantime, I hear Phoebe Philo has been quietly designing for Gap. Of course, she has been paid thousands to do this and her influence can already be seen in the spring and high summer collections. The evidence? Lots of preppie-ish cottons, dresses and fine knits in a muted palette and some fabulous (but rather expensive) bags.
