Welcome to the last of this season’s buying special issues, focusing on the world of footwear and accessories. Inside we bring you everything you need to know about the latest trends when you are planning your spring 13 buy.
And we have also shot some key items from a selection of the leading brands in our main feature (p37), which this season plays on a lost and found theme, as seen on this week’s cover.
Elsewhere, we’ve been out and about again covering the season’s key shows and this week we bring you the highlights of womenswear show Pure London (p31), which took place at Kensington Olympia this week. We also covered Pure and the season’s other shows live on our website for the first time this summer - to check out the coverage go to drapersonline.com/fashion/trade-shows (the site is free to subscribers, just register using your subscriber number).
Also inside this footwear-themed issue of the magazine is an interview with Richard Shetliffe, country manager for Alpargatas UK (iconic flip-flop brand Havaianas’ parent company), who told us about his plans for the future of the Brazilian business.
