Katy Potts tea for two

Abi and I are veritable tea addicts. Whilst I am a connoisseur of camomile and other such herbal concoctions, Abi favours the traditional PG tip. A nice hot cup of tea is one of life’s simple pleasures, that; we are both agreed on even more so when sipped in style.

All estethica designers adhere to at least one of the three principles of fair-trade, ethical practices and organic or recycled materials, combining ethical credentials with excellent design.

These bags are sure to be a hit with tree hugging eco warriors and luxury label enthusiasts alike.

Bernard Chandram

Structured pieces juxtaposed with floaty, feminine drapery made their way down the runway at Bernard Chandran.  A strong collection with a clear story, flowing bamboo prints, wooden block sandals, avante garde face masks and conical headwear spoke of Chandrans far east cultural background. A silk kimono style dress with a black sparkling bodice was one of the collection’s standout pieces. All in all, this was a consciously creative effort which just about remained wearable.
