Not since me and my schoolfriends all wanted a silver Nice And Safe Attitude jacket -two sizes too big with orange lining thankyouvermuch- have I really given much thought about the bomber, but now that the biker is veering from classic to overexposed my money’s firmly on the bomber. I like the adrogynous shape which [...]
Tweed or bouclé jackets never really went away, Chanel’s classic version has ensured that the nubbly trophy jacket is never far from the catwalk. This season though tweed jackets are really having a moment, tapping into the revamped retro trend. Nearly every high-street retailer and designer has produced a version for the season, so I [...]

Most of my attention has been focused at the Confetti System’s beautiful garlands, their colour schemes are just brilliant.
