A little more about the brands, instore now:
Tamara Fogel bags are inspired by heritage, quality and the vibrance of London. On offer instore is a collection of totes that have combined antique textiles dating back as far as the 1800s, and leather – to create pieces with modern appeal and the promise of timeless style. Antique German flower sacks, antique French linen and even vintage canvas military tents have been used in the collection
Milliner Rike Feurstein long held a passion for colourful fabrics and traditional craftmanship, abandoning her corporate job and dedicating herself to the nearly extinct art of hat-making. Launched in 2006 – the result has been a line of beautiful hats and headpieces for women and men using the finest materials. Think, plush fur felt, hand-woven straw, Italian silk, leather, and cashmere. Feurstein combines an oldworld quality of artisanship with a pure, sensuous, emphatically modern aesthetic.
And finally, WORLD: a label that needs little introduction – hailing from the shores of New Zealand, the design duo behind the brand continue to push the enveleope and repeatedly put fashion-foward collections unique in design, and undeniably luxe. Gracing international catwalks, WORLD has secured world-wide praise from some of fashions key commentators.
