New Season Now

The sun is out (for now) and the summer sales are in full swing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t crave the thrill of a new season with a fresh roster of new brands arriving in stores. Is there any greater sartorial thrill than happening upon a little-known label that will give your wardrobe a renewed sense of freshness? Paper London, which is new to Brown Thomas, is on a mission to do just that.

Its bold structural shapes and creative cuts are already coveted by Solange Knowles, Margot Robbie and Taylor Swift. But it doesn’t just tick the red carpet box – their collections solve workwear dilemmas with pieces that work all week, from am to pm.

Paper London is in store at Brown Thomas and online at www.brownthomas.com now.

Swatch Out

With a heavy reliance on our phones as the primary means of telling the time, watches seem to shifted from necessity to decorative. Swatch’s latest Skin Irony collection attempts to strike that balance between fashion and function. Hinting at a retro aesthetic with a vintage-style metals in brushed and polished stainless steel, it has a height of just 5.8mm making it their thinnest metal watch.

In 11 unisex styles, its slim and sleek shape will elegantly slip under a shirt/suit combo without bulking, but if you rather your timepiece be your fashion statement – that’s simple – roll up your sleeves.
