I love this time of year in London. The weather may be challenging but the city is filled with some of the most stylish people you’ll ever see – and there are brilliant parties happening left, right and centre, all driven by London Fashion Week. I spent a few days checking out the shows and discovering some of the autumn/winter trends in store for us, from late 70s/early 80s throwback fashion to the resurgence of houndstooth – and the return of the cape (which were everywhere).
More immediately important though, is what’s coming up for spring 2020. And I’m hugely excited to reveal that I’m working with the wonderful Cabi as one of their ambassadors for their spring 2020 collection. This beautifully wearable collection offers up bright colours (yellow and pink are the main hues), dreamy denim and twists on 60s and 70s fashion – think chic bohemian jackets and wrap skirts. It’s like the best of Americana with a modern twist.
I’ve spent over 20 years in the fashion industry and it’s refreshing to collaborate with a company that not only offers a great fashion collection, but also has a true purpose. There’s a lot of talk in fashion these days about doing more for others – or the environment – and it’s great to see Cabi championing that approach. From founding small business loans for women in developing countries to donating millions of dollars of clothes to those in need, it’s a forward-thinking company – set up by women and run by women – that I’m proud to be a part of.
They also do shopping a little differently, as you can not only buy online but also book a personal stylist in your area who will give you a bespoke consultation.
I’ve chosen my key pieces from Cabi’s spring 2020 collection and can’t wait to share them with you over the coming months. Here’s my first selection: A red jersey jumpsuit which I’ve styled with heels for a smarter look, and trainers and a denim jacket for a more casual style.
To give you an indication on sizing, Cabi is an American brand so sizes are two less the UK sizes. For example, I’m a UK size 8/10 and a Cabi size 4 fits me well. They also have different lengths in some of their trousers to cater for different heights.
I’m looking forward to showing you more from this great brand – don’t forget to check out my Instagram where you’ll see Cabi outfits appearing very soon.
