This lovely label Roseanna is designed by two super-stylish Parisiennes. It's only been going two seasons - I spotted it at Donna Ida, one of only a few UK stockists. They do have an online shop, though (I'll take this shirt and this jacket please). Pictures: Roseanna.

Laurence Doligé

I was just in Fenwick and spotted this new French label, Laurence Dolige, designed by the woman who founded Madame a Paris. It's a cross between APC and Margaret Howell: quite simple clothes in really heavy, lovely quality materials, not as boyish as APC and not as boxy as Margaret Howell. I tried on masses and wanted it all. In fact, there was a check shirt and a pair of cotton trousers I was particularly taken by, and I'm trying to resist heading back there after work for some purchasing. Pictures: Laurence Dolige.
