While we're still wrapping up in layer upon layer to beat the cold, the fashion houses across Europe and America are already bringing us their previews for next Spring and Summer. This Tulip Print Top from Raoul could well tempt you to part with your cash this early, however.
Designer handbags are a purchase that's nigh on impossible for most of us to justify, with styles that age with the seasons. It's easier to justify the huge price tag when the looks are timeless, however, which could be argued for the Dory Cross Body Bag by D&G.
We all might have our fantasies of finding that rare 60s designer gem in the back rails of a village charity shop, but rarely does such luck come through. For truly well preserved rareities, it's vintage resellers that we have to call upon. William Vintage, now available at Browns, bring some of the more decadent and unusual pieces, with prices that reflect their one off status.
Featuring pieces from the highest end designers like Dior and Pierre Cardin, the stock features original sixties pieces in the sort of truly impeccable condition that can command the often four-figure price tags. Not for the casual vintage lover, these are more pieces of fashion history than Friday night fodder.
With a nod to the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers these glasses have square lenses and retro style aplenty. The white frames have a red inner, picked out with a double red stripe along the arm. Typical of Eley Kishmimoto's simple, timeless style, these shades will last you through this season and beyond.
The glasses are limited edition and available either online or in-store for a very reasonable £65.

Of the many legendary designers who defined the 1970s, it may just be the designs of Halston that most define the decade for many of us. Creating silhouettes, innovative fabric uses and a sense of high luxury that remains a signifier of the disco era, it can only be a welcome thing to have many of the designs back to buy thanks to Halston Heritage.
Delving into the Halston archives, they're bringing us designs inspired by the originals, but made from modern fabrics that allow for a perfected fit and feel. This Goddess Dress has a decadent Grecian feel, in a bronzed pleated fabric that flows with your walk.
It's available online in the UK from My Wardrobe for £472.
