BARE ANKLES & BOYFRIEND JEANS (LFW)


The final instalment of my Fashion Week tale comprises baggy jeans, aztec prints and a few lols with my dungaree and camo-clad pal – and jeweller extraordinaire – Daisy Knights.

Sun-starved days have meant these ankle-baring babies have been relegated to the bottom of my jeans pile since I bought them last autumn from the denim maestros at MiH. Really the dream would be to pair them with a white t-shirt and a pair of Birkenstocks, but for now it's Kurt Geiger wedges and flashing a cheeky bit of ankle. The aztec printed jacket is an absolute favourite from Comptoir des Cotonniers, which has longtime been a treat shop of mine, and is a firm fixture in the South Molton Street/ Westbourne Grove brigade (we’re talking Maje, Sandro, The Kooples). I generally find their tailoring the type that doesn't look much on the hanger, but after a trying-on session you understand what the fuss is all about.

Combined with some winter-proof layering – chunky jumper and several trusty Uniqlo Heat Tech strappy tops safely out of sight – and a nod to the nineties in the form of a chunky white and pink watch and gold choker, both by Daisy Knights, and we were set for our last bout of London Fashion Week giggles (sob).
