Established in 2012 by London based brothers Benjie and Hugo Davis. Hugs&Co. has launched the TS1 driving loafer which sees upcycled tyre tread combined with Italian leather and British design to create a line of environmentally conscious luxury footwear. Only a fraction of the energy used to produce new sole units is required to convert the waste tyres into usable shoe parts. Millions of scrap tyres pile up every year. Designed not to degrade they create long-term damage to the environment.
Alternatives for disposal are burying or highly costly and energy-consuming methods to break them down. The TS1 repurposes this material and the simple process produces a tenth of the CO2 that new soles would use to make. Hugs&Co. are available online www.hugsandco.com and at Harvey Nichol’s and are priced from £120.

Gucci Soho Disco Bag
If you are looking to invest in a designer bag with gold toned accents this season then I still can’t recommend my trusty Gucci Soho Disco bag enough. Priced at around £800 this was my designer purchase on Fifth Avenue when we were in NYC a couple of years ago and it is perfect for summer or autumn months.
The attention to detail on this bag is stunning and the gold hardware really finishes the whole look off perfectly! The bag itself is surprisingly roomy and makes the perfect accessory for everyday wear, paired with skinny jeans and black boots.
Kintsugi (named after the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold) makes beautiful, useful apparel that is accessible for women with physical impairments. It looks no different to any other high-quality clothing, but there are small design tweaks that accommodate certain health conditions.
The Rosa May cape is one of the brand’s most inclusive pieces. It is a wool mix blue and grey cape with a digitally printed lining resembling the cracked pottery effect of kintsugi. It has no internal labels, so it doesn’t irritate the skin (this can be distressing for people on the autism spectrum or those with fibromyalgia) and the lining extends to the neck for that reason. It’s also easier to put on than a traditional coat if you have upper body mobility issues, as you don’t have to twist and rotate your shoulder and arm to get into any sleeves.
