Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

The blanket wrap

Get wrapped up in the new season now with per una’s must-have blanket shawl – it’s set to be autumn/winter’s star player, says womenswear editor Charlene Barton

September has arrived, which means autumn/winter 2014 is officially upon us. It’s one of my favourite times of year – nothing quite beats that new-season excitement of deciding the woman you’re going to be for the next few months. Sixties siren, folklore heroine, modern power woman: the catwalks offered up a beautiful cast of leading ladies, each with a flair for cosy layers – in particular, the humble blanket with a luxurious new spin. Cue per una’s elegantly understated design: whether nonchalantly draped across your shoulders, belted and cinched at the waist or monogrammed with your initials (look to Miss Cara Delevingne for Burberry), this is the trend to get wrapped up in.
