Let’s not pre­tend: 2016 was a bit of a shocker. Mainly po­lit­i­cally, but let’s not go there. In­stead, I’d like to share with you my ex­cite­ment over some brand new la­bels set to shake things up in 2017.

I’m pretty cer­tain that fash­ion will save us all so, with­out fur­ther ado, let me in­tro­duce you to Peggy Har­tanto. Peggy cre­ates what I can only de­scribe as ar­chi­tec­tural works of art. Her epony­mous la­bel may only be four years old but Gigi Ha­did, Li­lah Par­sons and Bella Thorne have al­ready worn her pieces on the red car­pet. But don’t think there’s an A-list price tag – ev­ery­thing starts at £90 and noth­ing is more ex­pen­sive than £500. Peggy’s de­signs are cur­rently stocked in Fen­wick and on­line, with Sel­f­ridges and ASOS both hav­ing ex­pressed an in­ter­est. Watch this space.

Sim­i­larly, Span­ish shoe ge­nius L’in­ter­valle, re­cently worn by Immy Water­house, has set my feet all aquiver. When I first set eyes on the fuch­sia, block heel mules and denim flat­forms, I ex­pected to see at least a three-fig­ure price to go with them – but this fancy footwear starts at £60. Speak­ing of fancy, scarf afi­ciona­dos Lily and Lionel branched into ready-to-wear last year, cre­at­ing a beau­ti­ful col­lec­tion of blouses, skirts and flow­ing maxis – all made of silk. All in all, 2017 is shap­ing up to be very promis­ing in­deed. Sar­to­ri­ally speak­ing, that is. The rest re­mains to be seen.
