Cancer: Long Victorian styled dress with high neck in coffee cotton lace trimmed with white, by Annacat, 25gns.
Whether you believe in star signs or not, this lovely editorial is certainly fun to browse. Pretty happy with my Cancerian Annacat dress, modelled by Stephanie Farrow, but greatly envy the Aries and Scorpio threads.
(Also, please don’t shout at me about the furs. I don’t like them either but it would be weird to leave out Leo and Aquarius. Just pretend they’re fake…)

Kelly, 19’s imaginative whizz-kid artist, is inspired into a frenzy of sketching by the twenty-years-back look. The war is over now – but uniforms don’t only look good on men.
Kelly, of course, is a complete figment of 19’s imagination and these incredible illustrations are always signed by the great Michael Roberts.

Our Tricel disco test: Dressed in Tricel, a couple spent an energetic evening at a discotheque. Come going home time they both felt cool and comfortable despite the crowd. Marshall Lester tops to top the pops in. In a variety of super colours.
Some synthetic fibres become highly charged with static electricity. In a crowd you’ll find they stick to your body something shocking. Not so with man-made Tricel. It’s less static than most synthetics. It absorbs moisture. And because it breathes, it’s much more comfortable. Stick to Tricel. It won’t stick to you.
There’s little I love more than novelty acrylic knitwear, but novelty acrylic knitwear in a groovy scenario such as these, well I just feel spoilt quite frankly.
