Several days ago, while striding through John Lewis on a mission to find a snuggly winter robe, one rack of clothes we went past made me stop and double back. One after the other I pulled things off the rail saying ‘ooh this is lovely’ ‘oh look at the detail on that’ ‘ah, this fabric is beautiful – check out the seams’. Until Mr Dreadful rightly enough lost patience and directed me firmly to the bathrobe department. The label I was so impressed with was People Tree; a brand I had summarily dismissed in the past as being one of those boring, holier than thou ethical clothing labels which are the sartorial equivalent of eating plain brown rice. Yes, some of the clothes are still a bit grimly hippy dippy. But most are actually rather fabulous; well constructed, sharply tailored, and in beautiful, good quality fabrics. These are my top picks from their current collection.
