THE EDIT

and then it was spring…

It may just be here for a moment, but all this sunshine means you’re going to have to rev it up a gear and get your spring on earlier than expected. Mix rusty tones with natural fabrics and if you don’t have a straw hat, then you need to have a serious think about what you’ve been spending your pocket money on. Step to it and ensure you’ve got the essentials nailed now!

LET LOOSE

Make it an easy breezy week… vibrant blues, sunshine neons and twisted details. Add some extravagant earrings, oversized sunnies and bring back the necklace. You’ve know you’ve got at least nine of them so start untangling and get layering.


THE EXTRAS

SHADY LADY

Coloured lenses, flat tops, round and retro or cat’s eye cool… these are the trends you need to know about. Your sunglasses say EVERYTHING about you.

BEST IN THE BUSINESS

emma gushlow & katrina cole

FOUNDERS OF GUSHLOW AND COLE


Childhood friends, Emma Gushlow and Katrina Cole grew up amidst the creativity and bustle of Katrina’s father’s leather and shearling factory. Both coming from families with a long heritage of dressmakers, tailors and knitters, their future was clearly going to be in fashion.

“As teenagers in the late 1980s and early ‘90s our sense of style was heavily influenced by London’s club, music and fashion scene. We would spend most Saturdays rummaging through vintage pieces at Kensington Market, buying Helen Storey at Hyper Hyper and Vivienne Westwood on the Kings Road”.

They both studied at The London College of Fashion before becoming apprentices in the family business.  They learnt with shearling and leather, pushing the boundaries of more traditional pieces and the way they were made. 

“Our innovative cricket ball stitch was picked up by Amanda Wakeley and used throughout her Spring Summer collection of 1996 and Nicole Farhi menswear the year after”. 

Taking everything they had learnt and their own unique style, they set up at Spitalfields Market, showed their collection during London Fashion Week and Gushlow and Cole was born. 

Maintaining the family’s meticulous eye for quality and their passion for traditional British made pieces, everything is handmade today, in their factory in Kent using ethically sourced, biodegradable shearling.

“Gushlow and Cole is more than just a brand - at its heart is our lifelong friendship, a strong sense of family and a business born of determination and an entrepreneurial British spirit!”.

EMMA & KATRINA share TheIr expert tips on how to shop

If you buy a lot of black clothes don’t forget to add pops of colour.  Colour is a great mood enhancer and looks great in your home too. 

Try layering with lightweight suedes and leather - perfect for when it's too warm to wear shearling but you need that extra layer. 

Invest in a capsule wardrobe of quality pieces that you can mix and wear season after season. Our brand is all about pieces that will last a lifetime, not throw away items you’ll wear just a couple of times. 

Less is definitely more.  Ensure you have a crisp white shirt in your wardrobe and accessorise it with simple gold jewellery.  

  Invest in one fabulous shearling outerwear piece, then it doesn’t matter what you wear underneath!


IN THE KNOW

out ‘n’ about

CORNWALL

Summer’s just a stone’s throw away, and if it’s set to be anything like the last time around, then you need to start planning that staycation. Sandy beaches, endless seafood and fingers crossed, the kind of sunshine you’d expect to find the other side of Europe… Cornwall can’t be beaten if your priorities include crab, ice-cream and a crisp glass of white. Leave early and drive straight to Sennen and you’ll see the sun rise over the beach. Holiday rules always apply, so either tuck into your first tipple at the beach cafe or head straight to Jelbert’s in Newlyn for a home-made cone with clotted cream. A crab claw later and a trundle through the antiques shops and your next stop is Fowey. Check into the Old Quay House hotel and make sure they’ve saved you a seat for supper. Take a boat along the quay and settle with a sundowner back at base before you start on the set menu. Next stop Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes; Cornwall’s closest offering to a Soho House style stop-over. Snuggle up under a striped umbrella and have a pop at the prawn sarnie or a P.O.S.H. burger. If you can’t cope without a Rick Stein fix, then head over to Padstow and he’ll be closer than you think. Top off your trip with one last night at the Cornwall’s most luxurious (adult only), eco-hotel, the Scarlet. Relax in the spa, go for a surf or hit up the hot tub… this is a view that can’t be beaten. Move over Italian riviera… when the sun’s shining, it doesn’t get better than this.
