With Christmas now just a distant memory, it seems the time is right to look at what the designers have in store for us for these early days of 2013 (and doesn’t it still feel strange to be typing that?).
A trip to Selfridges shows that there is a lot to savour from some of our favourite designers. Erdem continues the quest for the perfect lace dress with the beautiful cappuccino lace of the Anna dress, whilst elsewhere there is an awful lot of blue to enjoy, in all shades, from the bright and vibrant, to the most powdery pastel shades.
And then there are the new season bags. I have already expressed my love for Sophie Hulme with the stunning embossed metal bag I nominated as my bag of the month for November Bag servant, and now there is the cutest little plate satchel that is making me long for Christmas all over again. The Jil Sander bag is meant to be for the men, but I think that bag is far too good to just be wasted on the other half using it for sandwiches and train tickets.
Have the perfect first weekend of 2013 by treating yourself to something really special, it is the only way to shift that early January malaise!
