It’s dark outside, the newspapers are flooded with ‘wild weather’ headlines, and we’re sick of our umbrellas being blown inside out and ruining our hair. We’d much sooner swap the grey skies for sunshine, and our broken umbrellas for parasols.

Luckily, even though we’re far too busy to get away at the moment (especially with fashion month fast approaching), we’ve got a few totally exotic new pieces in store to brighten our spirits.

From her recent trip to Goa, India, Melanie has brought back some wonderful, handmade embellished bags by Ibban, and unique jewellery gems, which are now available in store and online.

Even if our bodies are firmly stuck in a drizzly London January, they’ve certainly transported our imaginations to more tropical, sunnier climes.
