With all this talk of diamonds and couture, you could be forgiven for thinking I have completely lost the plot. But I finished yesterday's meetings with a visit to see what British designers Clements Ribeiro are up to for their next project. Just in time for Christmas parties, they will be delivering their range of gorgeous cashmere cardigan jackets, each one decorated by hand with vintage buttons and trims. One simple drop waisted shift dress shape has been cut in a range of vintage fabrics, some so rare that the dresses will never be duplicated. And all of these will at least be within the realms of a realistic budget. Keep your eye out for them at Dover St Market, Matches and Net A Porter in the run up to Christmas.
