If I ever had a chance to re-make my first few fashion choices, from buying my first Cosmopolitan magazine in 2006 to banishing all glittery sweaters from my ‘drobe, I’d liked to have first consulted Robinson Pfeffer for some damn good taste. Although of course, in 2006 the agency (events & PR) would’ve been a mere few flittering ideas, bubbling and brewing amidst the growing friendship of Kyle Robinson and Andrea Pfeffer until its hatching in 2008. I was invited to their showroom in Old Street last week, and other than the fact that I got lost finding the entrance and almost pressed on Hussein Chalayan’s studio (?) doorbell, it was a wonderful (and educational) opportunity. Boy does it teach you how to think beyond the trends. The two were so kind, crazy and quirky… well of course! The brands were from all over the world: New Zealand, Canada, UK, Japan… My personal favourite was the Zambesi pleated skirt with the catflap-ish hole, and the mini trench by Alpha60. Well, I’m not going to spoil this glee by looking up prices or anything for now.
