Man of the moment

I don’t know about you, but I start to panic at least a month ahead of any gifting occasion I have to do for the men in my life, because the situation inevitably raises the age-old question of – what do I get? Gifting for men has historically been much more problematic than for women – but does it have to be? The answer is, no. Times have changed, and as our Men’s Accessories feature on page 101 shows, there are fashion pieces aplenty. Of course, they’re not only suitable as gifts. Men are no longer hesitant to self purchase, and are embracing fashion like never before. Boost your store’s offering and add these to your wish lists.

This issue we also focus on handbag trends, because there’s never a bad time to stock a quality bag, as well as throwing the spotlight on gold & silver jewellery. If there’s one bestseller that outperforms season after season, it’s a beautiful jewellery item.

Don’t forget to check out the latest industry news, new products and company profiles. You’re in for a treat this issue as industry expert Joe Davies gives us an inside look at the company’s inner workings – enjoy!

Until next time,

Louise Prance-Miles, Editor

Sustainable design from Vurchoo

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."

Kind Clothing from Frankie and Olive

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.
