So, ever wanted to get the inside track on designer sample sales? Ever since someone showed us her €200 Nicholas Kirkwoods, we’ve kept The Music Room, just off Oxford Street, on our radar. Every few days the sales change- last week it was Margaret Howell, this week ISSA and Duchamp, next week it’s Stella McCartney. (The Mulberry sale might just be worth a trip over?) Also on the Spring schedule are Joseph, Reiss, Melissa Obadash and Nicholas Kirkwood. At last, a chance to put our shoe envy to rest.
Nb: A block or two away, on Avery Row, there’s also a permanent Paul Smith sale shop for the boys where ties are £29 and an excellent selection of suits are but £400.
Long-awaited brighter days call for a refresh of our perennial favourite – denim. As we head out into the spring sunshine, our mood this season is ready to play, with sporty silhouettes and a relaxed vibe.
Are you really going to be squeezing into high-waisted jeans...
