Inside Grazia HQ: 5 Things We Loved This Week From Manolo Blahnik Monk Shoes To Prepping For A Fashion Shoot!

18 January 2013 by

1. Snow boots!

The recent change in weather doesn't just impact on transport, more importantly it affects our choice of footwear! What should you wear in snowy conditions to keep dry and warm and prevent you from slipping? The Grazia team put their boots to the test… First up is Lily Russo in Aldo

Catherine Nieto in Opening Ceremony

Sophie Ferguson Jones in Topshop Arson boots

Caroline Ferry in studded rocker boots from AX Paris

2. Monk strap flats

Moving on from the loafers and brogues of previous seasons, we bring you the monk strap flat. Originally showcased on Victoria Beckham's catwalk and spotted on her feet a month later, these monochrome Manolos are the hottest flat in town. In store now!

3. Supersized shoppers

Bags are getting BIG again and they are hitting stores now. Smythson and Burberry have both had their extra roomy day bags displayed in their windows in order to lure us in, Mini or maxi, take your pick.

4. Ready, set, shoot!

Ever wondered how we prep for a fashion shoot? Weeks of work go into the inspiration and then the team begin to request ready-to-wear looks from the catwalk. Check out a mood board and the state of our fashion cupboard on the eve of a shoot.

5. Love for the Lim!

This week we are having a little love affair for the new SS13 Philip Lim collection. The mismatch of pretty and tough, pastels and neutrals, chiffon and leather as styled on the catwalk have got us in a spin. This floral embroidered bomber that found its way into our fashion cupboard sealed the deal.

Bomber love!
