Fashion: “The Haute List” Cover Story

As they do over in the music department (except usually louder), we’ve been having our own debates in fashion about the brands and designers we’re rather excited about in 2014. Not the most excited about; we don’t like to be definitive (as regular readers will well know), just a few

The Hautelist #22: Aussie style

Unless you’re a GAP year brat, when someone mentions Australia your thought process probably goes a little something like this…Neighbours…Kylie…Kylie & Jason…Rolf Harris… boomerangs…that night in the Walkabout bar you’d rather forget….

Despite Sass&Bide showing in London every season, there’s still a general consensus amongst us Brits that Aussies …



The Hautelist # 21 Brand focus: Schott

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when I say Schott to you?  Rude boys in two-tonne varsity jackets, right?  Same here!  But it turns out that there’s a lot more up Schott’s super-padded sleeves then just what you see in JD sports.  The company has been making leather …

The Hautelist #20: Undies

Oh joy behold!  It’s official, the public have spoken and thongs, g-strings and all those other fancy-pants are on their way out.  Earlier this week it was reported that sales in thongs have dropped 17% and are now worth just 25% of the market, which means that the other 75% …



The Hautelist #18: Cat-eye sunglasses

Is it too late in the year for a Hautelist on sunglasses? Is it heck! Just the other day we found ourselves in a sun-drenched Covent Garden unintentionally swapping hard-earned money for a brand spanking new pair of cat-eye shades, and although this isn’t something we’d usually do in the …



The Hautelist #16: Hawaiian Shirts

For the past week we’ve found it hard to think of much else than tattooed men in Hawaiian shirts, so thought it only right to share this new found obsession/ perversion/ fantasy with you (admittedly primarily in the hope that we’ll convert more men to the cause and soon the …



The Hautelist #15: Espadrilles

Yes, The Hautelist has been on hiatus for the Summer (in fact, we’ve been in barometer rehab, but we’d rather not talk about that if you don’t mind…)….

Anyway, according the weather man we still have a splattering of good weather left in the year, so we thought we’d return …



The Hautelist #14: Brand focus: Sang A

There’s little the fashion scene likes more than new. New, from New York is even better – and new from New York via South Korea is fashion porn…and we all like a little porn on a Friday afternoon now, don’t we? Sang A is just about the hottest bag label …


Red Carpet

The Hautelist # 13: Red Carpet Dos and Don’ts

The red carpet – that wool nylon mix which can make or break a million dollar career in a matter of minutes.  The nearest most of us plebs will ever get to this pinnacle of glamour is a posh wedding – where we diet and preen in an attempt to …



The Hautelist #12 – Wedding Hats

In the aftermath of the royal wedding, the thing that’s been niggling at me the most is the hat situation.  Obviously Princess Beatrice took the prize for the most utterly monstrous head piece of the day….and possibly of all days, ever, but it wasn’t just her.  The basic fact is …
