Time for Cruise
It’s the time of the Cruise ready-to-wear 2012 collections. You know, the ones that make everyone feel frustrated because when you go and do your Christmas shopping, there’s only bikinis around, and when you are just about catching with the Autumn-Winter trends and finally want to buy cashmere tights, your favourite boutiques only stock hotpants, sandals and sunglasses.
Usually at this time of year, I gasp at the latest fur capes and wow at the delight of suede boots, while practising my mince pie-making and browsing for silver and crystal decorations on the first floor of Fortnum’s.
But this year is different. Since I have seen the Portofino Dior film, booked my December holiday to Barbados and had blonde highlights in my hair, all I want for Christmas… is my own Cruise collection!
