This week, we’ve got our eyes on a Julia Fox-esque leather bra, the perfect pearl necklace and a knitted vest by Molly Goddard, as well as some cosy new autumn candles.
1. The triangle bag
The Prada Triangle-jacquard medium leather shoulder bag has been living in our heads rent free all week, which can only mean one thing: we need it. Inspired by the label’s signature triangle logo, it mixes black and khaki green, and comes complete with rolled leather straps.
