A NOVEL IDEA
Over the past 20 years, Toast has found a niche for relaxed, comfortable clothing. Its bookish aesthetic of longer-line skirts and slubby knitwear is on trend for this season’s ‘librarian-chic’ look. Taking the literary trend more, well, literally, Toast is launching a book-sharing initiative in its stores. You’ll find a shelf filled with books from customers and staff; inside each title will be handwritten notes, explaining how the book has enriched the life of the sharer. Visit a shop to share your own book and take one away in return. toa.st.
