Jewels and Junya at Joseph

Still on a sale tip, I noticed during my Saturday jaunt down Westbourne Grove that Joseph has a huge sale going on in its basement. I thought all the good sales were over? Anyway, in the interest of journalist generosity I had a good flick through the rails and spotted some very nice deals going down. Junya Watanabe’s African print dresses – check. Marni’s pop-art spotty knits – check. Balenciaga shoes (70% off people!) – check. In fact, it’s a proper shoe bonanza down there as Miu Mius, Loubs and Pierre Hardys jostle for position. Also Givenchy LBDs and heaps of Golden Goose which I liked but D turned his nose up at.

Upstairs, jeweller Luis Morais has collaborated with Joseph on The Pearl Story, a range consisting of pearls and diamonds mixed with skulls and bones. Just my thing! Morais was one of the first designers I ever blogged about so it’s good to see him selling well in the UK.
