She’s still got it!

Wow! With so many designer collections on the high street, a girl just doesn’t know which way to turn. There’s Kate Moss at Top Shop (her new range has just gone on sale), Stella McCartney’s incredibly cute Gap Kids togs (and no, I’m not small enough to fit into any of them, more’s the pity), more Giles Deacon at New Look, the one and only Jimmy Choo soon to launch at H&M… and more to come, by the looks of things
But the latest designer to launch a high-street collection who’s really caught my eye is Zandra Rhodes – yes, she of the mad, bad pink hair and questionable make-up style. Zandra’s collection for Marks & Spencer is gorge – all floaty and dead boho, featuring amazing prints (Zandra’s speciality) and lovely loose, flowing lines (great for disguising lumps, bumps and too many big dinners). The two jumpsuits in her M&S collection could well see me revise my policy on wearing such things (I previously deemed them as utterly ridiculous, but now even I’m not so sure…). I am totally and completely in love with her halterneck jumpsuit. Makes me think of Bianca Jagger on a yacht, somewhere off the coast of the south of France. Utterly fabulous, in other words.
Well done M&S for bagging Zandra. Now when is someone going to persuade that other great English eccentric, Vivienne Westwood, to do a high-street collection?
