Joseph is one of those brands that doesn’t get a lot of shouty media attention but lots of people rely on. It’s just added an excellent shoe component to the line-up that’s a mix of boyish favourites and walkable glove shoes.
I especially like the vegetable tanned, crepe-heeled boots in classic colours from maroon, to tan, to black. (more…)
Right now, all I feel like dressing in is loose, oatmeal-coloured separates of the Joseph dress-up-dress-down variety. If you know Joseph, you’ll know their tailored jackets and trousers are excellent, not least because there are infinite variations within each style, so if you have a penchant for a particular fit, it’s probably there.

Clearly targeting a younger customer for Spring, Burberry Prorsum’s collection felt much cooler and ‘street’-er than this season’s haute bohemia. That meant an abundance of lightweight rain jackets shrugged over lace Friday night (or festival, perhaps) dresses and accessorised with monogrammed nylon rucksacks (the new monogrammed poncho) that you can order right now (click here to order).

What to wear when it’s spring, sunny but chilly in the shade? I default to merino knits that are lightweight but warm and don’t pill up like fluffy cashmere. And denim of course, but I’m looking beyond just jeans to all the clever shapes that have emerged in stiff deep indigo, or gentle chambray blue.
Some of my best merino wool finds come from the men’s department, especially Reiss, whose menswear is brilliant right now, while Paul Smith menswear has lovely extra fine merinos is gorgeous colour palettes. J.W. Anderson is another find, and Vivienne Westwood’s knits are all-year perennials. I can’t not mention my favourite Sibling sweater right now, featuring Madonna in the ‘Borderline’ days. Hell yes please to that.
