There’s nothing quite like shooting the latest looks for the next BOAW collection while listening to music that perfectly frames the mood, such as psychedelic French band, Melody’s Echo Chamber. Fronted by quirky vintage enthusiast, Melody Prochet, there is a whole lot of day-dreaming to ensue when you listen to tracks such “Bisou Magique” and “Crystallised”.
As the cold season greets us with heavy rain drops on our window panes, BOAW are reminded that the season of layering is upon us: let our infatuation with the ultimate layering tool, the leather skirt, begin. Wear with oversized jumpers, tucked over mesh layers or peeping from beneath cocoon coats for an ultimate 90s look.

Don’t shy away from accessories in winter just because coats and cardigans take precedence in the layering order. Think pork pie hats, thick knit beanies, coloured fur stoles and quirky sunglasses for a burst of eclectic flair… the drop in temperature doesn’t limit our creativity!
