Inspired by Yesteryear

As a child I was dragged around antique shops by my parents, an experience that has led me to develop a passion for quirky vintage pieces and a love of all things kitsch.

It’s always nice to see new collections that are inspired by a bygone era, and this season is no different. Forget the ultra-modern this summer, and instead opt for vintage-inspired designs for you and your home.

For Her

Fitted florals, feminine heels and feline sunglasses are the sophisticated way to work this story.

For Him

Nothing says retro like classic Fred Perry – stick to the brand’s iconic check for effortless style.

For the Makeup Bag

                     

Add a little liner and a slick of cherry lipstick for a beauty look that’d make Marilyn proud.

For the Home

         

 

A few carefully-selected retro pieces will give any living space a new lease of life.

Kate O'Brien

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
