How about that sleeve? Striped jerseys and white silks wider than they’re long.
Satin skirts, all pictures, by Screaming Mini at Reflection, Kensington High Street.
Photographed at Mr Chow’s Montpelier, Knightsbridge. Chess set with fake fur board at Harrods.
I’m always excited to see Alice Pollock anything, anywhere, but this spread features a blouse I have (except mine is in black) in the second image. There’s a good reason why vintage blouses get snapped up so quickly, and this photoshoot proves it…

1929: Days of the boater, the blazer and the beautiful young man. White was the rage. That year Harper’s Bazaar said, ‘White, of course, we always have with us.’ We still have. In Deauville and on the Cap d’Antibes, beach pajamas were the thing. Now trousers go everywhere. Ken Scott’s white crêpe trouser suit, single breasted over wide pants with turn-ups; to order at Fortnum & Mason. Graham Smith’s white buckled turban; £21 18s at Fortnum & Mason. White sandals; 8½ gns, Russell & Bromley.
