We tend to look for product with a distinct story which nods to the future. This is partly why the heritage trend has been so successful. Right now few brands have a better tale to tell then Tender Denim, few are more innovative than Berthold and none more able to predict a realistic utopian future than Agi & Sam.
Spring 13 appointments are always exciting: bright, bold colours and fresh summer prints. I’m very much looking forward to the Without Prejudice collection for spring 13, nautical-inspired blazers, summer Oxfords with a twist and plenty of soft-handle chinos in an array of colours. First-class service at Nicole Farhi always makes it top of our agenda.
All of them! However, the Prada show in Milan is always a firm favourite as Miuccia always seems to surpass herself. Ahead of the first London Collections: Men, it will be exciting to see a more commercial focus on the city. I’m looking forward to Thom Browne’s presentation taking place at Harrods. It will wake you up from any fashion week fatigue!
I always look forward to the collections the British brands we sell have up their designer sleeves, like Folk, Universal Works, YMC and Wolsey. I’m especially looking forward to seeing the Oliver Spencer collection for its mixture of unstructured tailoring to create utilitarian clothing for the warmer months. Other brands I’m looking forward to seeing are Norse Projects, Barbour and Edwin.
