Style bi­ble

All the lat­est from the world of fash­ion

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - News - Emily Cronin

Nige­rian de­signer Lisa Fo­lawiyo shows ankara, the printed west African cloth, in a new light. Her en­er­get­i­cally pat­terned dresses and sep­a­rates are bold enough to hold their own in La­gos, yet sleek enough to look right at home in Lon­don, New York or Paris. The brand is a labour of love – each vi­brant, heav­ily em­bel­lished piece takes an av­er­age of 10 days to cre­ate. See Fo­lawiyo’s de­signs at The Place Lon­don’s La­gos Fash­ion Week-themed pop-up un­til early Septem­ber. 59 Brook Street, W1K; the­p­lacelon­don.co.uk.

THE PERKS OF BE­ING A WALLFLOWER

The pro­fu­sion of wall­pa­per flo­rals bloom­ing across re­cent fash­ion col­lec­tions makes H&M’S lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion seem all but in­evitable. The high-street be­he­moth has teamed up with British her­itage wall­pa­per and tex­tile brand GP & J Baker on a new line of bloom-laden dresses and sep­a­rates. The range in­cor­po­rates prints in­clud­ing Mag­no­lia, orig­i­nally cre­ated in 1913, along with Blos­som, Hy­drangea Bird and Fret­work, for a set of couldn’t-be-more-ro­man­tic sum­mer looks with ma­jor waft fac­tor. From Thurs­day; dress, £24.99, hm.com.

FINDERS KEEP­ERS

Hunt­ing Sea­son’s struc­tured, la­dy­like mini-trunks first made a splash on Carolina Her­rera’s spring/ sum­mer 2018 run­way. Now they’ve gone global, be­com­ing stealth-luxe sta­tus sym­bols for those in the know. As well as the brand’s time­less totes and shoul­der bags, we’ve never seen so many re­fined raf­fia hand­bags. ‘The idea is to de­sign for a woman who ap­pre­ci­ates lux­ury but values dis­cre­tion,’ says founder Danielle Corona, who pro­duces ev­ery style in Colom­bia, her adopted home coun­try. ‘We’re ex­cited to make a beau­ti­ful prod­uct that means some­thing.’ Raf­fia hand­bag, £550, match­es­fash­ion.com.

BRACELET YOUR­SELF

A tanned wrist stacked with colour­ful trin­kets – from flu­oro fes­ti­val bands to hand-wo­ven bracelets picked up at sea­side stalls – serves as short­hand for sum­mer. This year, Louis Vuit­ton makes its bid to add to your arm candy with the new Lockit bracelet. What’s more, £100 from the sale of each bracelet (avail­able in a range of flu­o­res­cents or black, and adorned with a ster­ling-sil­ver lock) goes to Unicef. It’s the lat­est step in Vuit­ton’s three-year part­ner­ship with the char­ity, which has so far raised over £3.8 mil­lion for vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren glob­ally. £175, louisvuit­ton. com.

KID­DING AROUND

Why should mummy-and-me dress­ing end at lights-out? Yolke, the loungewear brand whose py­jama sets are as well suited to a fash­ion-for­ward wed­ding as they are to a good night’s sleep, has just in­tro­duced Lit­tle Yolke, a line of co­or­di­nat­ing de­signs for kids. The bright flo­rals and crisp stripes are bound to turn bed­time into a much chicer af­fair. £70 for a set, Har­rods, Sel­fridges and yolke.co.uk.
