The fashion items we absolutely love this month
By Abbie Schofield
It’s April, which means it’s almost time for the UK lockdown restrictions to begin easing — picnics and beer gardens here we come! Our wish list this month includes gorgeous fashion to wear for your reignited social life, with a focus on sustainability. We’ve also found French bedding made to last and a fabulous new fragrance by Jo Loves.
Absolutely London’s April Style Wish List
Aspiga Katie Wrap Dress
Aspiga’s Katie dress is made with silky viscose satin that is biodegradable and originates from tree pulp. As well as this cheerful blue, it’s available in green and pink — can we justify buying all three? £135
Jo Loves Cobalt Patchouli & Cedar
This new fresh and uplifting scent by Jo Loves has notes of vetiver, patchouli and cedarwood, with a limited number of beautiful bottles designed by artist Natasha Murray. £115
Loom & Last Aegean Blue French Linen Bedding
Loom & Last’s bedding is made from high quality flax plants in Normandy. Not only does this use significantly less water than other methods but it creates the longest, smoothest fibres possible. £275
Silked London Sapphire Silk Blouse and Skirt
Founded on the principles of a capsule wardrobe and ‘cost per wear’, Silked London’s collection consists of simple yet luxurious pieces you will reach for time and time again. Each of the eight 100% silk designs are available in three colours: Sapphire, Oyster and Onyx. Blouse £350, skirt £220
