“Naughty, but nice.”
Everything you’re after,
all in one place
You look good today. You look good today. You look good today. You look good today. You look good today. You look good today. You look good today. You look good today. You look good today.

And just like that, Valentine’s Day is around the corner. And no, we don’t need daily reminders that we’re single, lonely and locked down. However, we’ll make an exception for Christopher Kane’s brand spanking new More Joy Special drop, because we’re all for showing ourselves some love. The Valentine’s themed collection includes a restock of the most iconic More Joy pieces (yes, the vibrator) as well as a selection of chilli-red loungewear pieces and cute knickers. It's perfect for sexy, stay-at-home Saturday nights, and Sunday through Monday, too.
President Joe Biden wasn’t the only one getting sworn in yesterday – it felt like outerwear, the whole category, was inaugurated, too. From Michelle Obama’s dramatic burgundy overcoat and Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman’s sunshine-yellow Prada ensemble, to Bernie’s all-purpose parka (early contender for most meme-able moment of 2021) complete with giant hand-knitted mittens, there has never been a better time to let your coat do the talking. And with nowhere to go but the corner shop right now, we suggest you wrap up warm and channel Big Coat Energy on your next supermarket sweep.
Have you forgotten what the great outdoors looks like? Us, too. Fortunately, unlikely collaborators The North Face and Gucci have come together to reintroduce us to the magic of the great outdoors via their brand new collection dropping on 22nd January. In an homage to nature and adventure, TNF and Alessandro Michele have married impeccable style, beauty and functionality. IRL exploring might not be a thing right now, but popping on one of TNF x Gucci’s heavily monogrammed puffer jackets, a neon-floral skirt and bumbag, or a particularly luxurious, velour-lined quilted coat from the collection will definitely transport you to a destination more exciting than your living room. If you’re going to be sat at home, you might as well do it in style.
If this lockdown has got you feeling existential, you’re not alone – Prada’s brand spanking new SS21 campaign is right there with you. It asks the all important questions: is nature out there, or in here? Should we slow down or speed up? Can something be truly new? (Answer here!) and marks the debut of Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’ pioneering foray into co-creative direction at the house. From soon-to-be-cult hole punch tops to racy slingback kitten heels and recycled nylon dresses with cleverly placed logos, shop the collection for webcam friendly looks.
