here’s looking at... georgiana huddart

The crinkle-stretch fabric you see before you originally came onto the fashion scene in 1984, when designer Peter Meadows launched the fashion label Hunza. Not that Georgiana Huddart, 30, would remember. She wasn’t born then. Yet the versatile material was deeply embedded in her psyche – her brother Joe had the Hunza Pretty Woman dress, she says. ‘It was in our dressing-up box. And from four to 12 he wore it a lot.’ Did she want to take it from him? ‘Not really – it suited him better.’ But what did suit her very well was a miniskirt version of the same dress that her former boyfriend, Oscar Belville, bought her from a vintage shop in Berlin when she was 19. After that, the idea of relaunching the brand ‘wouldn’t leave…

don’t you wish you’d worn that? white swimsuits

I know what’s happening. You’re taking one look at this page and going ‘My eyes! My eyes! What is Tatler trying to do to me?

Even if you are not a professional white-swimsuit wearer. 2. They are very flattering – they cast everything not encased in white into the…

Flashy pool-wear is tricky territory. Nothing is going to convince this writer that high heels (wedges absolutely included) by the pool or on the beach are anything but desperate. So if you’re too grown-up for Havaianas and unwilling to do sweaty, upside-down battle with complicated gladiator straps (forehead pulsing, arse in air), then the answer is a slide. Sliiiiiiiiide. Even the word is relaxing. Just slide on in and go on your merry way, about your merry business. But there can be something faintly municipal about a slide. Slightly on-duty masseuse. So check out these splashy, lacy, sparkly, flowery, natty slides and off you go...…
