My Week In Fashion: Grazia's Senior Fashion Editor Shops For The Shows

19 August 2014 by

1. Club Monaco's brand flagship

Check out the beautiful blooms decorating Club Monaco's first UK women’s flagship at Sloane Square. The new store pays homage to the area’s history of Georgian architecture but it's the womenswear, vintage pieces and accessories that got us drooling. It's so gorgeous, we wish we could move in!

2. Breakfast Time

The Chiltern Firehouse is certainly the place to be seen at the moment in London. Last time I was there, so was Tom Cruise (apparently) and er, Gary Lineker (definitely). This time I visited with the lovely PR team from House of Fraser, and whilst there were no celebrities spotted, I did have the most delicious beef and vegetable hash with poached eggs and hollandaise. Yum, and worth a visit for that alone.

3. Hoi Hoi

As a stylist I get to work with lots of interesting people on shoots from makeup artists to models, so its great when I get to hang out with them outside work. My Monday night date was with the photographer Julia Kennedy, a long-time collaborator of mine. We treated ourselves to dinner at The Ace Hotel’s Hoi Polloi. It was my first time there, and I can confirm it was delicious. Even more lovely is the entrance, you make your way though a sweet-smelling florist to get to the restaurant which is such a wonderful idea.

4. New Kids On The Block

If you have little ones, check out this-weeks Grazia to see the kids special I complied. Inspired by the celebrity children of the world, there’s some great shopping ideas in there - from Dolce & Gabbana coats that could keep Harper Beckham warm, to Ermanno Scervino jeans which Aila Wang could be wearing come NYFW. You can also shop the edit on the Grazia app too on your phone or ipad.

5. Shoe's Anonymous

Another week, another pair of shoes. Before I check myself into SA (Shoes Anonymous) I want to tell you about my brilliant new flats from LK Bennett. They are so minimal and sleek and the pointed toe makes a refreshing change from the manly-round toe lace-ups. I do love a winkle picker!

6. The Shows Are Coming!

It’s around this time of year I like to panic buy…THE SHOWS ARE COMING! So I had a little splurge on the Outnet and brought a couple of things. I’m definitely keeping my new black J.W Anderson jumper, but am unsure about this pink waffle Simone Rocha jacket. I love it, just not sure I would wear it a lot? What do you think? Keep or Return? Help me!
