Vil­lage peo­ple

Cheshire Life - - Fashion News -

Ju­lia Dob­son who honed her craft at French fash­ion house, Ce­line is the de­signer be­hind Vil­lage Eng­land an af­ford­able new lux­ury ac­ces­sories brand, which names its bags af­ter vil­lages in Eng­land.

De­signs range from mini cross body bags to work bags, hobo bags and shoul­der bags.

There are also bag-re­lated ac­ces­sories such as pouches, purses, cross-body straps and bag charms.

I’ve checked the Vil­lage Eng­land web­site and so far no Cheshire vil­lage has been named in the cre­ation of a bag.

I think we should get on the case straight away. What do you fancy car­ry­ing? The Prest­bury? The Bun­bury or maybe The Tar­por­ley? YES TO THE COAT I bought my new coat a few weeks ago then dis­cov­ered like Amy Wine­house I’d gone back to black (and we all know what hap­pened to her - although I don’t think the tal­ented Ms W was re­fer­ring to clothes in her hit song).

‘Do I re­ally need so much black in my wardrobe?’ I pon­dered then I saw this coat by Vi­lago and thought ‘no’. It mixes up on trend neu­tral with on-trend neon but still man­ages to look el­e­gant and clas­sic. LUCKY JACKET? In the 1990s my friend had what she called her ‘glit­ter jacket’ and when she put it on it mag­i­cally tuned her into a femme fa­tale. If clothes could talk it was shout­ing ‘party’. Plus you could just pop it on over al­most any­thing and go from day to night. Now glit­ter jack­ets are ev­ery­where. They are a party-sea­son win­ner. This one is fab­u­lous and at that price you could con­vince your­self you’ll be wear­ing it for years to come. You prob­a­bly won’t but who cares? Jacket, by Pra­bal Gu­rung, £1,690 sel­fridges.com
