It’s here if you missed it). The latest one to […]Read more "The Med meets New York in a trainer, and the rest of this week’s Shoes News"
Sunday at London fashion week means one of my favourite shows: Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. I had the pleasure of interviewing the couple behind the brand – Justin and Thea – for a feature for InStyle last year and they were just lovely. They also make REALLY great clothes, so it’s always worth getting up early […]Read more "UGG on the catwalk at LFW"
