Unless you've been living on the moon, it's likely you're aware that leather is a HUGE trend right now. From raw hide to vegan leather (pleather) and everything in-between, there are some amazing pieces to bestow right now. Soft, smooth and buttery, textured or embossed, woven, plaited, gathered, studded - from the catwalk to interiors, we can't get enough of it!

One thing's for certain, home offices are now incredibly desirable. Somewhere that you can work productively and effectively, where you can Zoom with confidence, without the family's washing on display for all to see.

The days are getting shorter and undeniably colder but I, for one, am delighted. This is largely because, dark mornings and de-icing aside, it feels the perfect time of year to truly indulge. In food, in fashion – there’s no such thing as too many coats – and in you. Who doesn’t rejoice in a […]

FESTIVE ENTERTAINING: YOUR STYLE GUIDE

18th December 2017 , 2 Comments

Festivities are well underway. We’ve enjoyed (and quickly tired of) heavy snow, indulged in Christmas Jumper Day and shamelessly eaten our body weight in Celebrations (or at least I have)! The tunes are playing on repeat in every department store, on every school run and every office party playlist. Lights are up. ‘Out of office’ notifications […]
