…and a tracksuit!
VB had declared that she woudn’t be seen dead in public in a tracksuit, but the polished designer has been papped in just that…and trainers instead of her famed stilettos. Working the sports luxe trend hard, we salute you Victoria. (Has Posh turned Sporty?!)

Illustrator Simeon Farrar’s hugely successful Kate Mouse tshirt is back again, this time as part of an exclusive collection for ASOS. Of course a t-shirt makes up part of a super easy outfit for summer, making a statement t-shirt a solid investment.
There are 12 designs in Farrar’s collection for ASOS and all feature woodland animals – a big trend for this Autumn. We still adore the Kate Moss tee, which has sold out before so you better move fast!
Wouldn’t it be nice not to worry about turning up to a party and wearing the same dress as someone else? Well, a new Limited Edition collection from Whistles landing next month could lower the chances of such a sartorial stuff-up.
The luxe high street retailer is launching a beautiful collection of 70 pieces produced in editions of just 20 to 50 and they are sure to be in demand.
The pieces will be contemporary and luxurious (of course) and not just limited to party dresses. In fact, we’re especially excited to see the day and outerwear which will feature hot fabrics of the season such as leather, cashmere, jacquards and silk crepe *swoon*. Expect minimalist sportswear shapes, leather tees, cashmere tracksuits and pyjama-style separates as well as structured baroque-print and full-on beaded dresses for night time glamour.
Whistles CEO, Jane Shepherdson, told The Telegraph: “We decided to stretch our creative wings this year and allow ourselves the luxury of designing a small tightly edited collection of what we consider to be the most covetable pieces of the season…When we had created it, we realised that we couldn’t do without it and it became our Limited Edition…It is the epitome of what Whistles is all about -effortless luxury.”
The collection will only be stocked in a handful of top-notch Whistles stores and Harvey Nichols, Harrods plus key international department stores. But you can shop it online too. Good luck!

From battered boho festival favourites to practical luxe cases and neon fashion fads, the satchel never dies. We’re big fans of Brit brand The Cambridge Satchel Company and would readily covet a high end Proenza Schouler PS1…or anything of Rebecca Minkoff’s sexy studded satchel range. But for the budget (and style) conscious, Gap is doing beautifully soft leather mini satchels in teal, mustard and hot pink…for just £39.99. Crazy right?
We’re still recovering from the Olympics party and a patriotic summer of red, white and blue. So what better way to stay in the party mood than with a super hot and topical collection from Topshop…Opening Ceremony for Topshop no less. We love the mix of tough material, minimalist shapes and exposed zips.
Here is one gem of a dress that has just hit the rails in Zara. We LOVE the ladylike cut and jewel print, which is on-trend for AW12, according to Karl Lagerfeld and he should know. We adore Chanel’s jewelled coat and crystal embellished accessories. For more purse-friendly prices, Zara is on board with everything jewelled. Get shopping early!
