Pin on a badge like one of these and you’re back to nature in a small way. Picture badges, winged thing pins, discs in the shape of fruit, flowers and plants-all are part of the new, slightly naive look in accessories. And whereabouts on your person, you might ask, do you actually pin a bumble-bee or a pear? Answer is anywhere. On your left sleeve. Let a dragon-fly come to rest at your hemline. Let an oakleaf sprout on a kneesock. Just let the badge be where it falls naturally.

“Cocktails create good vibes in dark times,” says Peter Morton who runs London’s trendiest cocktail bar, Morton’s, to which all the models, photographers and other celebrities flock after a hard day under the arc lights. You can fix cocktails in the soothing surroundings of your own home—and at half the price—if you’re willing to take a little trouble. The one instrument you must invest in if you want to make a perfect cocktail is a cocktail shaker. Lots of the big stores are stocking them now and prices at Selfridges start at £4.65 for a plastic shaker, £6 for a more aesthetic stainless steel number. All cocktails should be mixed with plenty of ice and you must use fresh ice every time you shake up a new round of drinks, otherwise they’ll taste watery. Decorate cocktails with pieces of fresh fruit—lemons, limes and oranges—and maraschino cherries on sticks. All the recipes below were supplied by barman extraordinaire Arnold of Widow Applebaum’s, South Molton St, London W1. Now start shaking . . . Like this: Like Loading...
