Consistent, trend-free, highly wearable. This best summarises the work of UK designer Nicole Farhi, and her new summer collection is no different. While the mainline prices have felt a little high in the past, with the pound struggling, her range has now become a more attractive buy.

I’m feeling much of the debut men’s spring collection from Swedish born, NYC based designer Lars Andersson. The entire range is 100% hand-made from Lars and his small team, with the oversized and slim-fit knit cardigans a particular favorite of mine. Such artisanal quality, however, does come at a price - US$663 and $528 respectively from Blackbird.
