a week in fashion

By James | Published: 27. November 2011

*At the start of the week I saw a guy wearing a pair of dark red chinos. I thought they looked fantastic with his chunky wool sweater and peacoat. I instantly wanted a pair for myself, and thankfully didn’t have to search for long because I found this pair at Allsaints.

*Also currently on my wish list, a new woolen hat. I really want one with a bobble, I’m just not sure which one. My current favourite is this one by Aubin & Wills but if anyone knows where to get a better one please let me know!

*I also strangely want one of these Bape Harris Tweed cushions.

*Sunspel are launching “design i yourself t-shirts”. Made to order in three weeks. Sadly, only for those in London.

*Berlin eyewear brand Mykita is hoping to appeal to “hipster golfers” with their Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

*Finally… I wouldn’t normally pay much attention to a Claridge’s christmas tree, even one decorated by Alber Elbaz, the very cheerful creative director at Lanvin. But I couldn’t help but smile when I saw these photos this week, because the designer has sat himself on top of the tree, complete with bowtie, black rimmed glasses and huge gold fairy wings.

      Thank you Steffi, the mustard coloured one in particular looks great. I hadn’t noticed Reiss has some really great stuff this season.
