For as long as I can remember fashion has been more than just designing amazing clothes or even catwalk shows. To ensure a customer for life, brands have to sell a lifestyle, an attitude and overall an identity. Nothing expresses this more than the brands store which could be online or bricks and mortar. Take for instance Burberry and Gucci, both leading fashion brands with incredibly accessible, interactive and creative web stores however I still enjoy a good old fashioned shop, boutique, store whatever you call it; there is nothing better than walking through a store surrounded by all the things you love about that specific brand or concept. Perhaps this is why London has recently seen an influx of brand spanking new stores for us to explore!! From Celine to JCrew, Karl Largerfeld to Christopher Kane, London is brimming with amazing new spaces by the World’s leading names! With some just open and others to come, I think its necessary to don those new Nike’s (comfort first) and get shopping…..

Get me to the front of that queue….
From digging out last years crop tops and going to work with a slightly burnt nose to turning up the heating and ensuring my beanie is close by at all times….yep, it’s that uncertain, temperamental time of year again – Spring!!! Mornings now consist of deciding whether to wear my new mules with or without socks, seeing if it’s warm enough to wear anything above the knee without tights whilst always remembering to carry my scarf…just in case. I feel stuck in a rut of dungarees, jeans and jumpers, constantly fighting the urge to look like a typical ‘hipster’ in their Birkenstocks (so comfy) and sports socks (so warm), since when was fashion so practical yet oh so cool? This could be a good go on and then you remember, the pre collections, of course! My trans-seasonal calling card this pre-season is the impeccable Celine with all the clean lines, subtle trends and understated luxe you could wish for. It’s decided, I want it all and I want it now!
