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

Consciously beautiful

Titi Adesa Creative Director and Founder, Titi Adesanya, talks us through the company's ethos on circular fashion, and how the footwear brand's designs complement its conscious fashion DNA perfectly. "As an avid shoe lover, I've always been fascinated by the transformation that comes with wearing a good pair of heels, so I wanted to create a line for the contemporary woman with a youthful essence. I am also very passionate about conscious, circular fashion, which is why I created a brand that supports and empowers young African girls through sponsored education and mentorship. I wanted to have a message attached to my brand that women can be empowered by. Growing up, my mother would always say to me, 'Within every woman, lies a diamond – unique, resilient and imperfectly perfect.' Those words stayed with me as I grew older, which is why I designed the rose gold logo as a tilted diamond – to embody the message that we women are indeed all diamonds and imperfectly perfect in our own way.

Online to high-street

Owner Mollie Butterworth talks about how fashion and accessories retailer Pretty Parade Boutique has gone from strength to strength. "I opened the business on my return from travelling – the idea had come to me while in Australia and I just had this sudden feeling that this was something I was meant to do. When I returned from Australia, I had six months before my university place started, and I had a little bit of savings leftover so I thought why not? With the support of my family I launched my online store. We'd do regular pop-ups and even though not always successful it was clear to me I needed a physical store. Later the following year I went on to open our first bricks and mortar outlet, which has just celebrated its third year anniversary!"
