Bear necessities – dressing for the Jubliympics
Hong Kong shop windows are full of soldiers in bearskin hats at the moment from the expected (British tailor Gieves and Hawkes) to the off the wall (LA trashy trendy brand Juicy Couture). With the Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics this year everyone’s paying homage to Brit style through images of these iconic Queen’s Guards in their scarlet red tunics and black furry hats. But the best I’ve seen is this adorable vest by Aubin & Wills (big sibling brand to Jack Wills) exclusively for Net a Porter. These soldiers come with rosy red cheeks and union flag drums. As Rachel Zoe would say, “I die.” Only sizes extra small and extra extra small are left in stock so if you’re tiny you’re in luck. Charge!
