One of the great things about being insiders to the fashion industry is that we get to go along to fashion trade fairs and see the new collections before the general public. One of the best of the fashion trade fairs is the Scoop London Show at The Saatchi Gallery, King’s Road, London. Hot off the press is our round-up of some of the best that will be hitting London shops soon!

First up, great shoes from Freya Rose ! (see above)


Freya Rose with Tracy Rose… (Freya is no relation to us!…although it would be great to have a shoe designer in the family!)  The standout feature is the Mother of Pearl hand finished heels.


This Bolongaro Trevor designed coat unzips to give different looks…


Nadia Minkoff handbags are available at Nico Didonna’s boutique in Soho, London and many other great stores.

011-1Like many of the designs showing at Scoop, Nadia Minkoff’s bags are mid-market prices and also of very good quality.


Scoop was very busy with fashion buyers over the three day event.

028Barazandeh Paris are new to the UK and produce some very attractive beaded mittens and socks. Definitely an accessory name to watch for 2017!


The Vanessa Bruno brand needs no introduction and this burgundy coat was a big hit.

…Florals will carry through very much into next autumn/winter.


Marion Foale with model.

Marion Foale’s designs are hand-knitted in Britain. She told us that they are stocked in the Margaret Howell store on Wigmore Street. The shop is known for stocking greys, black and white – “yes she has stocked my greys….and navys too!”


Hudson London showed Liberty print velvets on masculine shapes. Shoes are available in Selfridges, Harrods and House of Fraser.

050-1O. Yang Jewellery. Beautiful shapes between £100-£250 were exceptional value.
