First look: Saint Laurent resort 2022



Saint Laurent resort 2022

Male gaze fashion is a bit of a snooze these days but I’m making an exception for Saint Laurent Resort 2022’s rigid denim tailored suit, because I really want these jeans. Maybe the micro bag as well. See it all here

New year, old style



Giampaolo Sgura for Sunday Times Style

I love this Sunday Times Style shoot I clocked last week, which looks like it was Xeroxed straight from the pages of an early 90s Elle. Everything from the soft focus ‘corporate girl about town’ vibe to the casting (Louise de Chevigny channelling Ines de la Fressange) and the gamine styling reminds me of Yasmin Le Bon-era French Elle – all that’s missing is the Filofax.

Particular highlights: the mini tan Hermes Birkin (I will be substituting with my Mulberry Small Maple tote), the boxy blazers, the Cartier watch and – of course – the hair.

Shop the post: the sensible sale edit



Aime Leon Dore aw21

Let’s face it, January is good for only one thing and that is the sales. I’m a very boring strategic sale shopper and use it to zero in on elevated wardrobe staples that will last. For me right now, that’s knitwear, outerwear and work wear.

Quite a few items I’ve featured on recent shopping posts are now on sale as well as perennial DRG favourites, including the Lemaire trench*, Rue de Verneuil totes* and Gabriela Hearst Merion boots*.

On the work wear front, I’ve heard that people are shopping for tailoring again, mostly in a jeans-and-blazer capacity, which doesn’t surprise me a bit. Throughout the pandemic that’s been my go-to and I’m currently on the hunt for both a boxy blazer and some straight leg jeans. These Paco Rabanne jeans* are promising. I can also report that the Jigsaw trousers I was eyeing in November were a great buy and are now 50% off here*. For knitwear, there’s a ton of Jil Sander* on sale that is never going to date, or if that’s still out of your budget then Joseph* is equally reliable.

I’m still obsessed with all thing gorpcore and at this point I don’t think we can have enough down jackets, utility-luxe capes, hiking boots and Suicoke footbed sandals* – thankfully there are ample supplies in the sale.

Shop the post: A calm, collected (last minute) gift guide



Toast Xmas gift

When it comes to gift guides, I always think about the things I’d like to receive. I’m actually very easy to buy for as I’m content with socks, books and edibles. Posh edibles are my top choice as a gift as you can just buy the person the elevated version of whatever their favourite thing is. (Pierre Marcolini chocs are my faves if anyone’s wondering, with Alain Ducasse chocolate and hazelnut spread a very close second.) Tea and biscuits are a particular no-brainer. Fortnums, Liberty and Harrods are especially good for these as the packaging is just sublime and the tins are obviously reusable. Plus, a stroll through the Harrods Food Hall or Fortnum’s biscuit room is surely an essential part of the Christmas experience, right? (more…)
