I'd be a festive fool to swerv around the fact that Christmas just came and went. The snow seemed to camoflage the time, as it was surreal for 'santa' to be back again, but I'm never one to turn down a chance for an updated wardrobe. And this year my wish list was the holdall that took a hold of my heart. I love the leather effect bag from asos that has a cave of room inside, and a rich dark crinkle to it that gives commuting some military spirit. I've also invested in trousers with texture, such as mustard chino's or electric silk ones that dance in the wind. Someone on lookbook compared this vibe to that of the Duckie Brown runway, and I certainly took that as a compliment. The collection has an acid surfer punk to it, with psychadelic tops that melt into rippling trousers, and a clash of pre-school crayon colours that look at home together. It's given me even more inspiration for layering in a different way and length.
