The Handbook’s Fashion Heroes is back for 2023, bringing you a round-up of the best winter fashion pieces the internet has to offer. From the heritage knitwear brand making waves on Instagram to an iconic designer’s new rental service and 10 years of one of our favourite Parisian names, scroll to shop the best winter fashion to explore this January.
This week marks 10 years of quintessentially Parisian label Sézane, and to celebrate, they are launching a special anniversary collection for fans of the brand. Hitting stores and online this Sunday 8th January, expect that recognisable Sézane aesthetic, from colour-popping knits to vintage-inspired denim and a general je ne sais quoi vibe.
There’s also tonnes of cool content on their site and socials honouring the brand’s first decade, from behind-the-scenes access to artistic short films. It’s making us want to jump on the Eurostar for a weekend jaunt to the city of love, pronto.
Sézane’s 10 Year Collection launches Sunday 8th January 2023.
British designer Anya Hindmarch has always been a front runner in fashion when it comes to sustainability, from her now iconic ‘I am not a plastic bag’ shopper to the use of 100% recyclable products.
This season, you can dip your toe into Anya’s world as the brand launch their own rental platform, a capsule collection of their best-loved styles, new season picks and archive pieces, all available for customers to rent by the day.
Rent the edit before you make your mind up whether you’ve really found a forever bag.
Don’t you just love it when a brand comes along and takes something painfully dull and makes it chic and sexy? Enter GLAS, the reading glasses brand putting sass into your non-prescription spectacles. Available in strengths 0 to +4, the reading classes are by far the chicest we’ve come across, whether you’re into statement colour, sultry cat eye or retro aviators.
And the best bit? They’re all priced around the £60-£100 mark, can be ordered online and delivered in days. It’s worth checking out their Blue Light Glasses range too, which are fitted with special lenses that protect against harmful blue light from screens, whether that’s your phone, TV or long work days at the computer.
The Heritage Brand Influencers Love
January means one thing sartorially… cosy knit season. Born in Scotland in 1903, Barrie is one of the country’s oldest cashmere manufacturers and its 100 years plus of experience hasn’t gone unnoticed as since 2012, the brand has been part of the prestigious Chanel Métiers d’Art house, working as a partner for the iconic fashion label’s collections.

Barrie’s own brand collection, though rich in history, is bring a playful modern edge to knitwear – think denim-fringed cashmere, peppy embroidered cardigans that nod to the ’90s and statement patterned chunky jumpers.
Tastemakers like Angela Fink and Chloé of Lou Lou de Saison have been spotted in the brand of late, and although, the pieces are very expensive (they do provide materials for Chanel, after all!), this is knitwear built to last and be loved forever.
