The fashion week circuit may be over and done with now until Feb 2013 but the patisserie calendar sets its own agenda and launching for Winter 2012/2013 is the Berkeley Hotel’s famous Prêt-à-Portea collection. So if you’re a fan of Hedi Slimane and YSL then the new homage to the label’s Cabas Chyc – in the shape of a forest green Victoria sponge cake handbag could be the one for you. Lovers of Fendi booties will love the Fendi maple and ginger ankle boot bisucit with yellow and black icing – nearly as much. Otherwise you can snuggle up with […]
