I wish. I’m sitting here in two layers of knitwear, a pair of stockings with leggings over the top and some old ski socks (I know, I’m so chic, I tell you ski gear the next big thing). Before you start sounding like my parents – yes I do own a heater, and no I will not switch it on, because my money is reserved for much more important things, like shoes. Not heat.
However, even in the freezing temperatures, I like the hope that a new season of collections brings. Whether it be Chanel or Glassons I get excited at the prospecting of creating a new me, a me who will be glamorous, effortlessly chic and warm.
One particular collection I await every year, with bated breath, is Ruby.
Coming up for us this spring, and hitting shops in the coming weeks (starting on July 13th) is Ruby’s The End collection. “Drawing inspiration from the film ‘Plein Soleil’, and recent adaptation ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley,’ The End looks at the brighter side of these films, focusing on the beauty of the Ingénues at the heart of these stories, and the colliding American and Italian worlds.”
Basically its beautiful. And relaxed. And it does exactly what spring collections should do, it whisks you away to a little holiday in your head, where you walk the streets of Rome in that exact full length shirtdress and bow detail ballet flats. I love the prints, the stripes and the colour choices that manage to be both bold a soft all at once.
And these are just my must-have’s. There is so much more to the collection hitting the stores and online. Plus their other in label Liam. Oh, and high summer pieces.
I can practically feel that heater money being spent already – best grab another pair of socks.
