Thandie Newton, Tory Burch and Laura Bailey

Where: Bond Street
Joanne Black Style: Stella McCartney top, Alaia belt, Stephen Webster earrings and Jitrois leggings

I bring great news! Tory Burch is now in Bond Street. Ok, so not exactly the designer herself – known for making New York chic affordable – but the next best thing – her newest store.

Described as ‘the next big thing’ back in 2005 by Oprah, Tory Burch has built up a rather enviable following in recent years. The high street loves her; celebrities such as Chelsea Clinton and Rachel Weisz love her, and Irish stylists love her. What more could a fashion label ask for?

Judging by the fab launch party in January, Tory is going to do great things for the London fashion scene. She approaches dressing women of any age in such a great way – blending trendy and stylish looks really well and offering great print and colour combinations. It’s no wonder then that the party had such a star-studded line up – including Thandie Newton, Laura Bailey and Joely Richardson.

Whether or not you’re a fan of her ballet flats, you’ll need to make some time to visit the new two-level store – which comes complete with lime green floors and mirrored walls. It’s as fashionable as the collection. Enjoy.
