We are excited to introduce our new series, “What to Buy This Week,” where I will share the top fashion and beauty purchases that the Marie Claire editors and I have been sharing and discussing incessantly. We will share our favorite items from the high street with the cult and emerging designers each week. For good measure, add a vintage gem to your collection.
Which product should I buy? This is a question that I am constantly asked by my friends, colleagues, and clients. As a fashion editor and celebrity stylist, I look for the best stores online and in person. You can be sure that I won’t miss a thing. It doesn’t matter if it’s a piece with a moment. You’ll find seasonal staples and styles to get your heart pumping. The focus will be on mindful consumption, so you can shop knowing that these pieces will still look great in a year or two, from cozy coats to floppy summer dresses. We can now fully embrace the optimism, color and eclecticism we have longed for. Festive clothing can be an alternative to the casual clothes we have been wearing for the past year. It’s a vibrant return to brunches, dinner dates, and even in-person meetings.
OVER MY HEAD BALACLAVA PS40 at NO CHARGE TO PEOPLE
The weather is cooling, so it’s a great time to stock up on layers to elevate your staples and keep you warm even in the coldest mornings. You can style yours with shirts and rollnecks.
GROSVENOR REMASTERED at RADLEY, PS239
Radley’s latest season collection is my favorite yet. The Grosvenor Remastered is reimagined using their rich archives. It retains its signature silhouette, but it’s updated in soft suede and faux snakeskin trims. This new version, which has been a favorite for more than ten years, will be loved for the next.
VICTORIA MAGRATH and EDGE of EMBER
Gaia is the third collection by Victoria Magrath, creator of sustainable jewelry brand Edge of Ember. The 37-piece collection is meant to celebrate the world we live in. Victoria explained that the collection was inspired by “organic contours” and “lush greenery found in nature.” She also shared that the collection features “textured recycled metals”, green malachite, and Mother of Pearl. You can wear the collection alone or stacked with your favorite silver or gold pieces to emphasize the details.
THE LUXURY CLOSET
The Luxury Closet. The Luxury Closet is a resale marketplace launched in the UK last week. It features exclusive brands and rare items from some of the most luxurious luxury closets worldwide. This platform offers a white glove service for buyers and sellers looking to purchase pre-owned luxury fashion. It features everything from vintage Rolex watches to archive Christian Dior bags, making it the ideal edit for conscious, circular investments.
PEA COAT, at MINT VELVET
A great coat is the best investment in autumn. A great coat. Mint Velvet’s pea coat is looser cut, making it great for layering with rollnecks. Pair it with straight-leg jeans and tailored clothing to reduce its bulk.
