The summer holidays are over, the bikini’s packed away, and it’s that time of year when consumers start to think about the winter months ahead. And that includes switching up the wardrobe fit for sunny climes to accessories for the colder months, including hats, gloves and scarves. These items are not only great self purchases, but also ideal gifts – check out our feature on the latest products to market in these categories on page 131. Anna Falke has wonderful options for the A/W season, so be sure to also check out the company profile on page 139.
We’re also throwing the spotlight on the up coming INDX show, as well as brand new products and all the latest industry news. Of course, the cost of living crisis is playing on everyone’s mind, therefore this issue’s Editor’s Blog focuses on what retailers can do to off set the global inflation affecting businesses worldwide.

Every sale from the Studs of Hope collection by ethical jewellery company Vurchoo gives back to local communities and is distributed worldwide by charitable partner Teach A Man to Fish. Founder and designer Alex Angel-Benscher tells us more. "I started Vurchoo seven years ago now. When I was travelling, I was exposed to so many children around the world who had experienced such extreme levels of poverty. I have always had a passion for design and when returning to the UK, I knew I could put my skills to good use and create a truly ethical business that makes people happy while making the world a better place at the same time."
Louise Rideout runs Hertford-based boutique Frankie and Olive, championing sustainable fashion and immersing herself in the local community – a key way for retailers to survive COVID and more. The name Frankie and Olive stands for 'honest and green', it is a fresh, friendly, independent women's boutique in Hertford. Having moved back from living in New Zealand for 16 years where I owned an award-winning shop selling sustainable clothing and gifts, I quickly noticed a gap in the market for a similar business with an ethical ethos. Frankie and Olive believes in Fairtrade, fair wages and safe working conditions for all workers and buys from labels who share these ethics. There are regular deliveries of thoughtfully sourced clothing and homewares offering quality, affordable pieces in natural, sustainable and ethically-produced materials.
