Now arguably the biggest Canadian who shows in London ...And supported by the Princess Kate. And all up in the florals before the florals became the thing. Or maybe starting the floral thing... There has been a lot of floral, as you know, but to me, BY FAR, these are the most beautiful prints we’ve seen coming down the runway including those from Paris and New York. Full Article

Antonio Berardi is a red carpet favourite. I guess I just don’t know sh-t because, well, I’ve never found his clothes all that mouth-watering. And this collection is no exception. I mean I like it ok, but there’s no face-puncher here either. Like I said, I guess I just don’t know sh-t.  Full Article

There’s a lot for Carey Mulligan here. I imagine she’ll choose at least one for The Great Gatsby press tour. Last summer I splurged on a Christopher Kane dress for an award show. Like, you know when you get the sweats when your credit card gets run through? It was pricey. But you know what? The fit and the design? Totally, TOTALLY worth it. Full Article

Last year I thought very seriously about a pair of Paul Smith shoes embroidered at the heel. Eventually I had to walk away. It seemed like they were better on a shelf, admired, than on my feet, sure to be trashed. Celebrities can do a one wear shoe at a thousand dollars and not have to work about a scuff or a nick. Full Article

This is the one they wait for in London. There’s a reason we rent and don’t own, right? Would I regret spending my savings on this collection? Because I know you think I would but... I’m telling you, I’m not actually sure. Oh you’re so shallow and materialistic and STOOOOPID for wanting clothes over a house! Yes. Full Article

Last year it was the First Nation themed sweaters. This year Mulberry’s making it the bags. I want each and every one of the bags sent down this runway. AND those wedges in every single colour, especially orange.  Full Article

He loves colour and he loves print. I love one of those necklaces. Last year I tried on a Matthew Williamson dress at Selfridges on a suggestion from the incomparable Hilary Alexander. If only “Hilary said I should buy it” was an acceptable explanation for the credit card companies.  Full Article

One of Catherine Cambridge's favourites. You'll be seeing at least one of these looks on her. Perhaps at the Olympics? The label is London-based but the designer isn't English born. Does that count for patriotism?  Full Article
