Sitting, as I am, staring at the apple tree outside swaying in the autumn sunshine and shedding its fruit all over the grass below, I am struck by how beautiful the colours are at this time of year.
It has me thinking about what I really need in my wardrobe now, both in terms of the new autumn colours and in keeping warm. So on the eve of our preview weekend, here’s jojo’s autumn picks. We hope to see you in the boutique soon!
