The search for the ultimate winter boots is over thanks to Dear Frances. Designer Jane Frances launched her luxury footwear brand in London in 2014 with a timeless-with-a-twist ethos and exquisite craftsmanship at its heart and it’s generating quite the buzz. Chances are you’ve seen the now cult Spirit boots, a classic, heeled ankle style, on the likes of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Amal Clooney in various colours, highlighting their cross-generational appeal and unparalleled versatility. And there are the Float boots, Dear Frances’ take on the Chelsea boot, which have lucite accenting the wooden heel- a genius identifiable detail that is fast becoming a signature. Every elegant style has been designed with comfort in mind, to be easily worn all day, every day for years to come. 


Dear Frances also deserves credit for its ethical production processes and partnerships with non-profit organisations. The boots are expertly crafted by artisans in Italy, at the same family-owned factory where London College of Fashion graduate Frances previously interned, and with only the finest sustainable materials- from supple leather and suede to decadent velvet are used. The theory is that by creating the highest quality boots possible at an accessible price point, waste and over-production will be minimised as they’ll endure. Clearly these are boots worth stockpiling and investing in, even more so when you realise that the brand sends a pair of shoes to a person in need for every pair sold. It’s part of Dear Frances’ mission to help people worldwide while creating shoes that make you look and feel amazing. 

Check out the current collection’s highlights in the gallery above and shop your favourite in the edit below.

New Year means new shows and a new opportunity to discover what twisting plots, haunting performances and amazing sceneries that tv has to offer. We here at Shopcade have rounded up the best shows you need to binge on this year:   


THE CHI (SHOWTIME, JAN 7) 

The series follows a group of residents of the South Side of Chicago wanting to better their lives featuring an amazing cast headlined by emerging star Jason Mitchell director Rick Famuyiwa and star of last year's best Oscar film "Moonlight". 

THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE: AMERICAN CRIME STORY (FX, JAN 17TH) 

Following on the very successful real-life crime anthology of The People v O.J. Simpson, season two exposes the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace - shot at his home in Miami in 1997. The series features an A star cast including Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace, Ricky Martin and Darren Criss. 

THE ALIENIST (TNT, JAN 22) 

One of the most talked about series of the new season produced by Cary Fukunaga (if say True Detective - the first season rings a bell!) while Jacob Verbruggen (who has worked on London Spy and Black Mirror) was employed as a showrunner and director. It tells the story of Teddy Roosevelt before he came into office when he was serving as New York Police commissioner and he got the help of a criminal psychologist (Daniel Bruhl), a newspaper illustrator (Luke Evans) and secretary (Dakota Fanning) to catch a deadly serial killer of the time. 

WACO (PARAMOUNT NETWORK, JAN 24TH) These miniseries tell the story of Waco 1993 Texas siege that lasted 51 days and left 76 people dead. Expect mesmerizing performances by Taylor Kitch as Branch Davidian leader David Koresh and Michael Shannon as FBI negotiator Gary Noesner. Keep your eye out for unsettling mullets!  

UNSOLVED - THE MURDERS OF TUPAC & THE NOTORIOUS B.I.G. (USA, 2018) 

As the title suggests, the series tells the stories of murder mysteries of the deaths of rapper megastars Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur. They were gunned down at an early age and at the height of their careers as they were representing a coastal feud as well. The series chronicles the two extensive investigations that revolved around the heinous murders.

We're letting the buzz from London Collections Men settle as we dissect the must-have items if the next season. As with any season, this one was no different, with a great offering or Britain's finest from Belstaff to Christopher Kane, Ben Sherman and Christopher Raeburn. 


ARMY COAT 

Go for an army surplus coat courtesy of brands like Belstaff and David Beckham's Kent & Curwen.This is the year to invest in a great utility coat that will accompany you from casual smart drinks to the gym even on a rainy commute to the office. Its multiple occasion versatility makes it ultimately desirable and a great gift for guys by the way. 

GOLF KNIT 

Glasgow-born Charles Jeffrey is a designer that pushes buttons and embraces a post-gender world in fashion. He showed oversized jumpers stuffed with padding very reminiscent of golfing green, while MAN's Stefan Cooke went for a knit vest. 

FAUX FUR PARKA 

You would expect models to walk maybe put on a show but definitely not ice dance, right? Well, that was the case for Band of Outsiders who turned Somerset House in in a purpose-built ice ring over the weekend. What stood out was a revamped version of the teddy bear coat in a multitude of colours. That's from London Collections Men for now as we get ready to welcome all the trends from Milan, Paris and New York in the following weeks. 

Hurry and be the first to sport the items straight off the runway by shopping our expert edit below!

These days it feels like it’s always fashion month somewhere and the Autumn Winter 2018 show season kicked off with menswear in London last weekend. That’s why hordes of very well-dressed men were flitting around the capital- to take in the shows- and in the absence of big names like Burberry and J.W.Anderson, emerging talent made big waves. 


According to British GQ and the men’s style press, the overarching theme seemed to be 'boys to men', as in the sharp tailoring, heritage fabrics and smarter, structured styles that the older men in your life would be drawn to vs the sporty streetwear and decorative denim for younger generations with their finger on the pulse. The brands to namecheck like you were there are: Craig Green, Christopher Raeburn, Astrid Andersen, Wales Bonner, Art School, Kurt & Curwen (part owned by David Beckham) and Tinie Tempah’s What We Wear brand. 

Since a lot of the AW18 clothes won’t be hitting stores for months, we thought we'd share 3 streetstyle trends to shop and rock immediately. Above, a gallery of noteworthy looks attendees wore and below, the edits.

I moved to London over six months ago now. Alas, the one thing my house is lacking is a bath. Taking a bath when I'm away is now a dreamy treat and one that shouldn't be without a Lush product. I adore the Lush bath bombs. Intergalactic and Twilight are definitely favourites and I love to finish this ritual with Sleepy body lotion. I can't wait to see what products are released this year.

It’s Nanushka’s time to shine now that Eastern European fashion is in the spotlight. Head designer Sandra Sandor, a London College of Fashion graduate, was inspired to launch her Budapest based label in 2005 by her mother who sold children’s clothes in the 1970s. Mixing intuitive design with playful cuts and sumptuous fabrics, Nanushka offers subtly feminine styles with unexpected details that create a sophisticated sense of urban escapism and an informal beauty.  


Delivering a high fashion point of view at affordable prices, Nanushka became an instant hit with plenty of It items. Fashion influencers like Camille Charrière and Danielle Bernstein picked up the cult HIDE puffer jacket; while the '90s belt bags, the SORAYA silk dress, the PALOMA bodysuit and babouche inspired shoes have helped make the Hungarian brand all the more popular both on social media and in over 30 countries worldwide. As Sandra puts it: "Nanushka is for the urban nomad, for those who are on the move but always at home." 

Nanushka is definitely one of our favourite brands to watch, so shop your favourite pieces from our expert edit below before they sell out!

This week Shopcade profiles Giorgina Clavarino, the influencer with the very poignant blog name entitled “Giorgina With an Eye”. The former Business school student talks to us about her dream closet, her collab with the playful Mira Mikati brand as she takes us through her morning routine and the elements that define her eclectic sense of personal style.


What compelled you to start a blog? I’m a hyperactive person, so unless I have 100 things to do I am not satisfied with what I have accomplished at the end of the day. The search for new challenges is what made me start my Fashion blog. In 2014, I was finishing my studies at Cass Business School in London and had lots of spare time, so I decided I would actively fill it up with something I was passionate about. I knew my studies at Cass were important because I’ve always dreamed of starting a business of my own one day. I also missed being more creative and having an outlet where I could just share what I loved, which is what my blog became. I had been following The Sartorialist for quite some time, and I loved how he shared photographs of street style in NY and loved how inspirational it was. I think this is what gave me the inspiration and the courage to test myself by starting a blog of my own, to share what I loved too!
#222222">
#222222">What's your relationship with fashion? How did it start and what motivates you to keep at it? I grew up in Milan, so fashion flows in everyone’s blood there. When you grow up in a city which is one of the world’s fashion capitals, you are indoctrinated with fashion from a young age. This probably explains why I was so into fashion since I was about 5. There is always the expectation to be flawless and up to speed with trends all the time. #222222">I think that the person that influenced my style the most however, has been my mother. She has always been a bit of a hippie, which is why since I was 10 I’ve loved wearing Minnetonka, boot cut jeans and have messy beachy hair. #222222">I remember my mother always used to buy stacks of magazines we would flick through together and rip off everything we loved and then make huge collages that I still have hanging in my bedroom in Milan. This then led to me creating my own scrap books, which I considered to be my own bespoke ‘Vogue’ editions, that my friends loved flicking through. The blog was then the evolution #222222">of the scrap book – a virtual version that I could share with more people. What keeps me going is my love for fashion. I know it sounds cheesy but it’s the truth. The creativity, the work, the influences that go behind the fashion industry, the way that you brand your products, the packaging, how you photograph it, the visions of the designers, the styling of the stylists, all the processes from beginning to end inspire me daily and are what motivates me to turn on my blog for a couple of hours a day and write something personal that made me think, laugh, smile, inspired that I want to share with other people. 
#222222">
#222222">How would you define your personal style? Do you have any icons people accounts that you follow? When I moved to London my style changed a lot. I love Italian style, but it’s often too timeless and never too daring. Exactly the opposite of what I am, I always love wearing flamboyant clothes, whether it’s wearing a funky hat, a colourful pair of trousers, glittery shoes, or socks. In London you are more liberal, you can experiment with styles and are constantly influenced by different street styles, which in fact are my major influence. I love what people are wearing in the streets, I look at photographs and often attempt to recreate with my twist on what they are wearing. I love doing lots of stuff myself too, whether #222222">its dissembling an old pair of Levi’s, or sewing things onto jackets, designing my own jewellery. My other influences are Frida Kahlo, because I loved how colourful and exuberant her style was. She wasn’t afraid of being different, or better, of being herself. Jane Birkin, as she taught me how to look effortlessly cool with a simple pair of jeans and blouse. Kate Moss, because she always risked and wore the sickest clothes, from leather pants to colourful coats. And finally, to be more contemporary, #222222">I love ‘The Man Repeller’ and Leandra Medine. It’s an account I closely follow on Instagram, as I love how she combines clothes and never takes herself too seriously.
#222222">
#222222">What do you enjoy most about mixing and matching high street with high-end clothing?Proving that style goes beyond the brands you are wearing.  
#222222">
#222222">How did the collab with Mira Mikati come about in Winter Wonderland? What are your favourite items from the latest collection and how would you style them? When I saw the collection I immediately imagined them to be captured in Winter Wonderland. Her clothes are so colourful that I wanted to put them in a fun and #222222">cool environment, that I could camouflage myself in. Every piece of Mira Mikati is very exuberant and colourful, so I would style them as I did on Instagram, with a simple pair of jeans to make the coats and jumpers stand out. I love colours in winter, but you must find a balance, so that the focus goes on the hero piece you are wearing e.g. the faux rainbow coat, or a yellow coat. 
#222222">
#222222">Can you give us 3 styling rules that you abide by? 
#222222">
#222222">1. Mom jeans 

2. A pair of ‘70s converse that will go with almost everything 

3. A lipstick that lifts every outfit 
#222222">
#222222">Whose closet would you raid if you had the chance? Probably Leandra Medine. 
#222222">
#222222">What's the biggest misconception about having your own blog? That it’s easy! 
#222222">
#222222">What's your morning routine? I never wear lots of make-up, as I am too lazy and always too late to spend too much time on it. When I wake up though I always wash my face with Clinique Anti-Blemish Solution face wash, then clean my face with Kiehl’s Cucumber Herbal Toner and apply Clinique Anti-Blemish hydrant visage. I then add a very thin layer of Light Wonder by Charlotte Tilbury to give that fresh glow for the day and a bit of waterproof mascara by Eyeko. To finish I spray a bit of Twilly d’Hermes to be perfumed all day. I usually then have breakfast at work, which is either salmon on toast and a cappuccino or bread and Nutella. Life is too short to eat healthy all the time, especially in the mornings! 
#222222">
#222222">What projects are you working on now? Big projects are still TBC! So stay tuned to discover more in 2018!

The infamous drama following the political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II's reign is back on Netflix. And we're absolutely crushing over the on and off set style of the show's star Claire Foy. Claire made an impressive jump from the London stage to TV by starring in the BBC drama, "Upstairs Downstairs". She soon appeared as Anne Boleyn in the TV mini-series Wolf Hall in the great company of Damian Lewis. 


Nowadays, apart from the part of Elizabeth II that made her a household name, she also returned to the stage as Lady Mcbeth with James McAvoy in Macbeth in February 2013 at the Trafalgar Studios. Claire's style is classic with a modern twist. She goes for simple and elegant designs that are differentiated by a few embellishments here and there. She counts Erdem, Valentino, Duro Olowu and Fendi as her designers of choice and we've seen her red carpet confidence naturally grow. 

 Have a look at our gallery for more Claire Foy inspiration and shop her look from our expert edit below!

Old woman syndrome, hibernation, call it what you will. There are some people who won’t be prised from the cozy confines of their home at any age or temperature. For them, nights in and duvet day weekends are the dream and they’ll only venture out in extreme circumstances like work. And with house prices sky-high for renters and buyers alike, in London particularly, surely you can forgive your friends and family for nesting and making the most of their haven. It’s their pride and joy after all and they’ve worked hard for it. Any gift that improves a homebody's sacred time will be a winner.  


Lounge wear- from cashmere tracksuits and silky pyjamas to fluffy dressing gowns and sheepskin-lined slippers- is a good place to start provided you know what size they are. A blanket or sofa throw they can snuggle up under while watching a movie or reading a book is nice too and you’ll get extra kudos if you monogram them or provide the reading material. Hot water bottles are more thoughtful than you think if they get particularly cold come winter and the covers are delightful.  

As home is where their heart is, shop our expert edit of fitting gifts below.

So pointy. So sexy! ‘Buy them immediately’ was our instant reaction to the vampy mule. And by ‘vampy’, we mean the sensibly heeled mules’ latest makeover- a V-shaped slit in the vamp, mirroring the sharp toe. Some of them even allow a tantalising flash of toe cleavage. They are streetstyle stars turned designers Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio’s signature shoe don’t you know, for their contemporary party-perfect Italian brand Attico. Available in a range of materials and finishes, these trendsetters style them with a rainbow of chic ankle buckles. 


Vampy mules aren’t completely new, though, because Balenciaga’s knife point satin mules- bowed and in Quality Street wrapper shades- were the streetstyle hit of the summer, with editors waxing lyrical about their polarising-but-amazing qualities. Then Finery London released their Cudworth style in patent black which might just be the ultimate 18 hour shoe. If you’ve been looking for a pair of heels to take you from desk to disco, without packing flats in your bag for the journey home, these are they. Use them to add an enticing edge to dresses, tailoring and off-duty dressing and let the compliments roll in.
