Tex­ture is so in rn.

Hi Shine

90’s club chic is back-and it still hasn’t been to bed. Hot on the heels of Fila’s Dis­rup­tor train­ers come­back, we give you shiny puffas, vinyl skirts and plenty of PVC. Psst... A light dust­ing of tal­cum pow­der on your legs will help stop vinyl trousers from chaf­ing!

Vel­vet

Barely a day goes by when we don’t se­cretly imag­ine we are Joan Collins. Chan­nel your Dy­nasty pomp in a vel­vet cock­tail dress, high-step­ping san­dals or sleek jump­suit. Psst... Vel­vet is not the kind of fab­ric to chuck in with your tow­els. Dry-clean it spar­ingly and brush the vel­vet pile with a soft bris­tled hair­brush to keep it look­ing as good as new.

Cor­duroy

Fash­ion has coxed cord out of the ar­chive and onto the cat­walk, and it’s steal­ing the spot­light in jack­ets and jeans, dresses and dun­ga­rees... Psst... A starter look for the cor­duroy-cau­tious: clas­sic trousers in a deep rust colour (that’s the sea­son’s key look nailed al­ready) paired with a chunky camel polo neck. Easy, right?
