Don’t snooze on these ultra-classic Sunspel knitwear deals



Sunspel grey lambswool crew neck

I’m not really into Black Friday hysteria but these Sunspel knitwear deals (up to 30% off) are worth checking out. It’s a good British-based brand to support with great products.

I recommend their most classic pieces – merino silk crew necks* and roll necks*, lambswool crew necks* and this nutmeg cable knit*, all worthwhile investment pieces that you’ll wear beyond a few seasons. I particularly like the depth of the ribbing on the neckline, cuffs and waistband of the crew necks (all too often, brands mess about with these – please don’t!) and the colour palette. Buy the women’s Black Friday knits here*. (more…)



Shop the post: Jo Malone Christmas collection 2020



Jo Malone Christmas Collection

There once was a time when Christmas wasn’t Christmas without the ‘Jo Malone Christmas in July’ extravaganza in the JML Townhouse. From the year they built a mini skating rink in the house, to the time Jonathan Saunders reimagined everything in candyfloss pink and green, you could never quite predict what the festivities would look like.

[UPDATED] Shop the post: Uniqlo +J by Jil Sander is back



Jil Sander is back designing for the high street

[UPDATED – It’s launched! Click to shop below…]

I was brutally critical of the last Uniqlo X Jil Sander collection. I tried on a few pieces in store, found the cut and quality lacking and didn’t give it a second chance. That was 11 years ago. Now it’s time for Uniqlo +J mark two.

The men’s and women’s collection launches just launched in stores and online on 12th November and looks flawless. Prices range from £24.90 to £299. My standouts are the Hybrid Down Short Coat* (£159.90) and Hybrid Down Jacket* (£109.90), the Cashmere Blend Collarless Coat* (£199.90), the Fine Gauge Cashmere Crew Neck* (£89.90) and the Supima Cotton Stand Collar Shirt* (£34.90). The trousers sound promising but I can’t see them properly on the model.

Interesting, but not altogether surprising that there’s no athleisure or ‘bleisure‘ (business-leisure) wear included, as while they may be Covid-relevant, sweats were never a Sander thing. But overall it looks timeless and well made and should chime with the current ‘elevated basics’ zeitgeist.

Remember Mahabis? They’re back



Good to see the return (and improvement of) the OG Mahabis slippers.

These were all over my social media back in the early days and a huge hit with stay-at-home millennials. Until an unfortunate blip in 2018 sent the company hurtling into administration, to be rescued by Simba Sleep founder, James Cox.

Now the original slipper design has been revived as the ‘Curve’ model, a return to Mahabis’ signature silhouette with contrasting rubber sole and toe detail (more…)
