What not to wear July 25, 2007

Filed under: Shopping — lauravw @ 7:02 pm

I was interested to read in the Times the other week that Trinny and Susannah have designed a range of clothing, which is being sold through Littlewoods. I thought it would be a good opportunity to find myself a good coat, and now that I’ve looked on the website, there are a few nice-ish ones. But what surprised me most about the Trinny and Susannah collection is that every single one of the items I’ve looked at is dry clean only. Littlewoods, as you may know, is a clothes catalogue that specialises in selling things to people who can’t afford to pay for them all in one go – typically payments are spread over one to two YEARS. Which means some bright spark in their design department thought that someone who has to pay for a pair of trousers costing £45 over 20 installments can afford to pay to have those same trousers dry cleaned every few weeks. Not likely.

    I avoid dry clean only labels like the plague. With 2 small boys, it’s just never going to happen.

    That is nuts. I think T&S give good advice – though I rarely stick to it for very long – but what makes them clothes designers anyway?
