1. Quinn wears no. 4: salvatore ferragamo evening dress and jean-charles de castelbajac ski jacket

    This week, our shop mannequin quinn (named for obvious reasons) wears a pink ski jacket by french designer jean-charles de castelbajac over a knitted black evening gown by famed italian shoemaker (but also (slightly less-famed) clothesmaker) salvatore ferragamo.

But partly because there’s a story attached, the gist of which is: on boxing day an old friend walked into the shop wearing an identical skirt!
