Eclectic Newcastle boutique SKIRT is injecting some green glamour into its choice of brands.
A champion of fashion with a conscience, SKIRT is Newcastle’s sole stockist of the “Where are you now?” range by Josie, which gives new life to vintage.
By travelling the world finding fabrics and “pre-loved” items, Josie gives her seamstresses the ingredients to cause a stir in the style stakes. Summer’s range takes influences from London and Paris, with a nod to nautical.
SKIRT owner Claire Western says: “By handpicking materials from the past and reconstructing them with a modern twist, Josie has created a summer range that straddles different eras but still manages to be bang on trend.”
SKIRT has also made space for Danish brand mbyM. Its collection of cropped hareems and cleverly cut vest tops are natural in material but in candy cane colours.
SKIRT, High Bridge, (0191) 221-0234.
