The 5 key accessories to get you through Spring/Summer 2016

Whether you’re on the countdown to your summer holidays, planning your outfits for a variety of upcoming events (wedding season is upon us!) or simply looking forward to shedding your winter parka and welcoming a short sleeve back into your life, we’ve got the strongest selection of independent brands to compliment your Spring/Summer wardrobe choices.

Why buy from independent producers? Ethical production chains, not a hint of fast-fashion and a well made item that will last beyond a short season are just a few of the reasons why we continue to champion indies from all over the globe.  Here’s our pick of accessories to see you through the warmest months of the year in style.

 

The Watch

There’s a great resurgence of independent watch manufacture in the UK and with it comes a variety of crisp, clean designs which give even the most established names a run for their money. Looking for a simple statement of quality focused on the finest hand-stitched leather straps and sapphire crystal glass?  Paulin could be the ideal choice for you.  Like your wrist wear to feature the finest mother of pearl, ceramic and high grade stainless steel from carefully selected suppliers?  Check out our Kennett selection.

The Sunglasses

Anything goes in the current world of eyewear and it hasn’t come a moment too soon.  Gone are the days when you were a slave to lens size or the frame of the season.  Now, thanks to Finlay & Co., we can fully embrace vibrant colours, wooden frames and hey, if it’s good enough for Gigi Hadid, Rihanna & David Gandy then we’re definitely going to take their lead.

The Scarf

When you don’t want to ruin the lines of your outfit with a coat or simply don’t need a jacket in the warmer months, a beautiful designer scarf is the perfect finishing touch to your outfit.  We’re spoiled for choice with designs from independents such as Johanna Fleming (who has also designed Florence & The Machine vinyl artwork), Helen Ruth (story telling via most beautiful art on her scarf designs) and new W.E. launch Santorus London (a stunning luxury art brand created by two generations of the Santoro family).
