People might be winding down for the long Easter weekend, but we poor fashion types (!) still have lots of press days to visit before we can put our feet up, and inhale as many chocolate eggs as possible. Not that we are complaining, as we do get to see some amazing stuff. This morning we popped into the PR mecca that is Relative, and saw some stunning pieces from the likes of Mary Katrantzou, Christopher Kane and Louise Goldin, but it was the latest collection from jeweller Dominic Jones that blew us away. He loves a bit of a sinister shape, does Dominic, after last season’s collection of spikes and horns, and this autumn/winter it’s all about the bug. Big bugs. With sharp antennae and spindly legs ready to wrap around your fingers. However they are definitely more beautiful than ugly and we already have our bug eyes on the over-sized bracelets and beetle rings.
