STEP UP, FEEL GREAT

COOL (BRI­TAN­NIA ) COLLABS

This month sees the launch of three collaborations in celebration of our stylish Scep­tred Isle. JW An­der­son’s 33-piece col­lec­tion for Uniqlo fuses his sig­na­ture witty aes­thetic with the brand’s ther­mal ‘heat tech’ fi­bres. Ex­pect chic (and cosy) twists on trench coats and shirts, at great price points. Su­per-stylist Bay Gar­nett was in­spired by ’90s Bri­tish street style for her quirky ‘Gol­bourne Road’ col­lab with Mih Jeans. And chic shoe de­signer By Far has worked with Whis­tles on a cap­sule range named af­ter iconic Lon­don streets. We es­pe­cially love the block-heel red sling­backs. Run, don’t walk. Dis­count vouch­ers. Exclusive prod­ucts. Free canapés. Brands do love an in­cen­tive to tempt shop­pers away from their laptops and into their stores. But this au­tumn, high-street stal­wart Karen Millen is of­fer­ing us some­thing dif­fer­ent – a mood boost. Work­ing with sassy ca­reer de­vel­op­ment ex­perts The Step Up Club, the la­bel’s ‘Women Who Can’ cam­paign aims to em­power women with a na­tion­wide se­ries of free in-store talks and events on sub­jects like build­ing con­fi­dence, grow­ing ca­reer re­silience and chal­leng­ing suc­cess norms. Dates and lo­ca­tions will be fea­tured on the brand’s web­site, as will in­ter­views with in­spir­ing Bri­tish women, such as Shar­madean Reid MBE (founder of WAH Nails), on their tips for achiev­ing your goals. Miles bet­ter than any canapé, I’d say.

JUST OUR LUCK

Hot on the heels of the vogue for all things mystical and tal­is­manic is jew­ellery that al­lows you to touch wood any time. Both An­noushka and Lo­quet Lon­don’s new­est de­signs fea­ture pretty pieces of em­bed­ded wood, so su­per­sti­tious wear­ers can get lucky when­ever they like.

PLUS:

Top­shop are win­ning us back. Each range launched at their bi-an­nual fash­ion shows will now be avail­able im­me­di­ately on­line and, with prices between £25 to £275, is much more af­ford­able than some of their pre­vi­ous col­lec­tions.
