cult clothing. As her business has expanded Davis has maintained this philosophy of responsibility

“I operate a fair trade policy, and manufacture the clothes in the UK and Europe.”

Fashion spreads notoriously fast and we are already seeing the vintage element of this trend

reflected in the lower end of the market. “Even on the high street colours have been knocked

back from the usual hot pink and turquoise to muted shades of beige, greys and taupe” says

Vogue Bambini Stylist, Julie Mansfield “It’s all a bit Enid Blytonish with Mary Jane shoes and lit

tle Madeline style bobbed haircuts. The clothes have become a lot more ‘proper’ and a great deal

more attractive.” So even if the high street isn’t necessarily quite up to speed with the more sub

tle and worthwhile elements of this new look as least in future we might not have to shade our

eyes from the sight of little children walking down the street. ••• Clare Lewis
