We have had a slew of sarto- rial celebrating to do this year with many iconic British brands all celebrating big birthdays. Jaeger has clocked up an impressive 125 years, John Smedley turned 225 and Marks & Spencer also marked its 125th birthday. this year also heralds 25 years of the British fashion council and, of course, london fashion Week which went off with a bang last month. in the wake of all this excitement comes the launch of website, dedicated to luxury fashion, accessories and interiors. Packed with high fashion treats, expect a typically British mix of traditional and quirky brands such as Liberty of London, Luella, Lulu Guinness, Pringle of Scotland, Mawi and Aquascutum. our favourite buys include the lulu Guinness lips clutch bag (219) and the Union Jack beret sprinkled with swarovski crystals and vintage-style veil (639) by Victoria Grant. Not just restricted to womenswear, also check out the mens, kids and lifestyle sections, too. British fashion is having a moment across the board right now, from high-end designers such as Burberry, Stella McCartney and Matthew Williamson, to quirkier fashion houses such as Vivienne Westwood, Giles Deacon, Christopher Kane and House of Holland all gaining column inches with the fashion press. We also pride ourselves on our brilliant high street and one of our favourites is Jaeger, whose Jaeger london collection had even the big fashion houses worried during fashion week. check out its 125 collection, from which we love the sixties-look monochrome check coat (499). find even more affordable buys at M&s, which has a new collection to celebrate its milestone. its hot pink shift dress (59) is bang on trend. Dont forget about other Brit hits including oxford circus mecca Topshop, French Connection, Ted Baker and River Island. and for true bargains head to Primark, Matalan, Peacocks or even the supermarkets, thanks to George at Asda, Tu at Sainsburys and F+F at Tesco. cool Britannia rules again. by rebecca boyce THISWEEK lite loves Touching scene: using the Etre Touchy glove His gadget-friendly gloveS JUst occasionally we find something that deserves the simple but brilliant tag -- like the Etre touchy glove.
