Brocade may have had it's fashion 'moment' last autumn/winter, but it will always be one of my favourite fabrics to wear. When H&M launched its collaboration with fashion heavyweight Marni last year, I picked up a skirt and the below t-shirt in opulent gold and purple brocade fabric - and have worn both countless times since (remember when I wore the skirt to London Fashion Week?). The collection was a sell-out, but you can still find pieces on eBay and designer resale sites like Vestaire collective from time to time. When my lovely bloggy friend Annie invited me to the BBC proms at the Royal Albert Hall yesterday, a short wardrobe panic ended up in me wearing my failsafe brocade tee with some hastily pulled together accessories. My chain-strap bag is a recent purchase from Vince Camuto - a New York accessories brand that has recently opened its first UK store on Kensington High Street. Are you a fan of brocade?
