September is flying by at full speed; the kids are back at school, the temperature is starting to drop, and those blissful days of strolling out of the door minus a jacket are very much a thing of the past. But before the autumn blues kick in, remember that – in style terms at least – this is the month for reinvention: everything is fresh, new and yours for the taking. Perfect timing, then, to showcase our latest womenswear collection at London Fashion Weekend, this Saturday 20 September. For those of you who can’t make the event, stay tuned: we’ll be bringing you all the catwalk action next week with our exclusive video edit, courtesy of Stylist magazine. What’s more, beauty editor Jess Clark will be showing you how to achieve autumn’s key make-up looks from the designer shows in this week’s Trend Spotlight. And for the gents? Don’t miss menswear editor William Oliver’s footwear pick of the season. Finally, if you’re looking to surprise someone special – or maybe just treat yourself – our beautiful autumn bouquet, brimming with lush roses, should certainly do the trick. Have a great week!
