Unbelievably (at least for us), we have ended up at the tail-end of the year – only a mere 10 days out from Christmas itself, and only a few more out from the New Year. But before we get there, there are a few fashion moments and news items on our radar to share.
From a favourite New Zealand label's first-ever archive sale in Sydney and two Burberry stores thrusting open their doors, to an iconic timepiece getting a luxe new makeover – there's plenty to busy yourself with this week. And if that's not enough, there are stunning Resort and High Summer collection releases galore, perfect for that last-minute holiday look or for keeping tabs on through those post-xmas sales.
For all the fashion moments and news you might have missed this week, read on.
