I start thinking about AW the Febuary before cos of all the AW fashion shows. I find Summer so difficult, happily like others on this thread there has been virtually no Summer for us anyway this year. My only 'problem' is, there isnt much I need I certainly don't need anymore fur (it's costing me close to 1K just for cleaning and Summer storage this year) or boots (fur-lined Land boots from H have yet to be worn-in from last year) or Hermes (well there is always room for one more silk ) Don't need any more tweed, cashmere, leather or hats although none of that might actually stop me. My wish list this year is pretty short: 1. Croc belt in a colour I dont have already, to be worn with everything 2. Large, soft, smoochy bag from Valextra (forget the smoochy with Valextra) , BV or Gucci 3. Gloves from Sermoneta (perhaps the iPhone ones with pockets on the top) 4 Black suede wedge ankle boots and/or low bikers for replacements of trusty faithfuls 5 maybe one or two more cash/silk scarves in PERFECT colours BTW there is a DIY fur collar thread in the Hermes Forum. You don't need to buy new fur if price is an issue (which all seem to originate from the Far East anyway) furriers will sell you pieces from remodelling at very reasonable rates and the quality and size will be a lot better than some battery-fox fed on chicken food. Loro Piana make fabulous cashmere scarves and shawls with fur and Gucci have some very pretty silk with fur for next AW for those who are not on such a tight budget.
