Ephemeral summer is about to flit by in the Northern Hemisphere and it’s all about Autumn/Winter 2009.  But winter – the wild and woolly, stormy, windy part of it – is clinging on tenaciously in the Southern Hemisphere.  Which means the AW09 Toast clothing catalogue makes the ten thousand kilometre transition nicely.  The catalogue always features gorgeous, lush photography evoking the company’s vision of luxurious, English living – bluestockings, Bloomsbury, Oxbridge, the Jazz Age and wild, isolated country life in sparse, weathered rooms of rambling, dilapidated mansions.  This season, there are nods to the Roma and Fairisle and the Far East.  And not a bodycon dress or high-heeled platform shoe in sight.  Just beautiful, comfortable clothing which slightly bookish (moody!) women leading busy lives can throw on and look lovely in.
