Blink Retail: Baby, its (not) cold outside

According to fashion, Summer is history and Autumn is where it’s at…

Yes, we are in that frantic seasonal change over that leaves you feeling slightly out of step with reality. The stores are almost sold out of Summer sale stock and the shelves are rapidly being replenished with the first deliveries of Autumn. In many cases, these deliveries are not really what we in fashion fondly term ‘Buy now, wear now’. If they were there would be more summer dresses and a some gorgeous bikinis for the optimists amongst us who hope that July, August and even September might be scorching. These new season deliveries are in fact full of chunky knits, long sleeves, heavier weights, tweedy textiles and even the odd fur trim. If, like us, you are rather suggestible, you’ll actually be considering investing in that fabulously cabled, angora blend, long sleeved, high necked sweater- even though it could induce heat stroke if you wore it now- because it might just be sold out by the time you may actually really need it in, say, October.

Here are some of the gorgeous new season looks that we shot in store windows over the past week…
