5 Minutes With… Three Floor Fashion Co-Founder, Han Chong

I’m sure I probably don’t need to introduce you to Three Floor Fashion but just in case, I’ll start this post with a few choice words anyway. Three Floor are arguably one of the hottest brands to have launched during the past couple of years. Their fashion forward yet ultra wearable style have earnt them an army of style savvy fans, not to mention features in every major publication going, from British Vogue and The Evening Standard to Garage Magazine. Most significant perhaps is the fact that despite being a favourite among Editors, bloggers and stylish girls-about-town alike, Three Floor remains determinedly high street in price.

5 Minutes With… Mulberry Brand Director, Georgia Fendley

The Brilliant Britain press breakfast may have involved setting my alarm for an eye-wateringly early hour but Mulberry sure as hell know how to make a crack-of-dawn wake up call that little bit easier. Not only was there the promise of a far more delicious start to the day than my microwave porridge and an introduction to the project to entice me out of bed, but I’d also been promised the chance to chat with Mulberry’s brand director, Georgia Fendley.

As a die-hard Mulberry fanatic, I could have quite happily picked Georgia’s brains all day. But given her major role at one of the world’s most coveted brands, I kept things short and sweet. Enjoy…

Mulberry Launches Brilliant Britain

Mulberry

There are certain things in life guaranteed to put a smile on my face. One of those things is Mulberry. Another of those things is Harrods. Exclusive events held at fabulous venues also feature somewhere near the top on my list of grin-inducing happenings. So when the handbag brand extraordinaire decided to hold an intimate press breakfast in the aftermentioned department store’s accessory department, my excitement hit new and probably unhealthy levels. But of course, this stylish get together wasn’t merely an excuse to drink champagne (served even at 8am in fashion circles), feast on miniature poached eggs and mingle… At least, not entirely. This week saw the launch of Mulberry’s Brilliant Britain project and so we gathered in Kightsbridge at the crack of dawn to hear all about it.

Look Du Jour: Just Dandy

Just Dandy

Just Dandy

What: Slippers: Penelope Chilvers, Trousers: Topshop, Sweater: Whistles, Necklace: Anne Bowes Jewellery & Bag: Mulberry

Where: Mulberry’s Brilliant Britain Launch Breakfast at Harrods.

Fashion may be fickle but, do you know what? I think I’m probably fickler. By the time we neared the end of July, I was already suffering from pastel overload and longing to replace my chiffon blouses with cosy autumnal fare. 2 months, 2 fashion weeks and countless SS13 collections later, I decided bright n’ breezy wasn’t all that bad, and rather wished we could dive straight in to next Summer’s graphic checks and neon hits. Well with fashion month over and temperatures falling, I’m back in love with autumn once again. There’s just something about rich hues, snuggly knits and luxurious fabrics that exudes opulence in a way that I dare even the most bikini-loving of beach bunnies to resist. Case in point, Penelope Chilvers’ bespoke dandy slippers. I ordered these stunners back in August and having awaited their arrival for what feels like a lifetime, my excitement when they were delivered last week bordered  on unhealthy. But plum velvet, pink trim and my own initials embroidered on the tootsies… If that’s not a cause for celebration then frankly, I don’t know what is!
