Cashmere in Love was another brand to die for, with their gorgeously geometric contemporary chic designs, fine fabric choices, and with brand owners being husband and wife, this was definitely a collection made with love.

Taking us back to the 20′s in a bat of an eyelash, Cashmere in Love oozes the elegant, sultry emancipated femininity of  the Jazz Era.

Using the finest Mongolian cashmere with combinations of  wool / cotton or silks, their fabric marriages are variable, sometimes it’s 85% cotton 15% cashmere or 70% cashmere 30% silk depending on the selected garment.

Beading embellishments and  geometric lines and cut outs are the focal design points, creating distinguishable and very minimal, effective compositional pieces that complement each other when layered.

Now available globally and online at  are you on Facebook and Twitter? Well so are they!














Last but certainly not least we have British brand  Villain, now this brand has been established for 8 years providing menswear to the snazzier kind of gentleman, who cares about the details, as well as the aesthetics of his embossed bomber jacket or straight cut floral print trousers.

This is their third womenswear collection, I can’t be alone in thinking there is NO  going back after this! I will live for this brand.

All of my favourite Wes Anderson movies ( and a recent theatre production ‘Public Enemy’) just seemed to resonate through the lookbook, the warm, musty almost beguilingly extinct complementary pastel colours combined with the untouchable textures !

I couldn’t just shop online for this kind of fashion I’d need to play dress up in store!?

Everything about this collection is oddly even, and do you know that they have actually made a jacket out of bottle cork!? > with CANDY FLOSS PINK LINING!


Life is complete!

Go to their site, that’s enough from me! and
