Never mind the ski slopes – it’s getting chilly enough here in London to start dusting off the mothballs and pulling out the winter gear. I must not complain about the weather here though after our friends and colleagues Stateside have been suffering from Hurricane Sandy these past few days – my thoughts are with our New York office and our hotels across the East Coast and hope the recovery period isn’t too long of a struggle.
If you are feeling the chill, you should check out Roeckl – a German brand I’ve recently been recommended by some of my most stylish female acquaintances (yes, you are the most stylish, obviously!). I hadn’t heard of them before but they sell beautifully made leather gloves, hats and scarves and because they are only available in Austria, Germany, Kazakhstan, Netherlands and Poland currently, you won’t spot their designs everywhere. www.roeckl.com. Ideal for wrapping up in the city and on the piste too.
I’m thinking about treating myself to a new pair of driving gloves next time I have the chance to visit a store, and I’m sure their silk scarves are going to make excellent Christmas presents. What do you think?
