THE SOCIAL CALENDAR

The social season never ends. So each month we're bringing you all kinds of looks for the many, many occasions currently filling up your calendar.

MARCH

WOMEN OF THE WORLD FESTIVAL, LONDON

Celebrate International Women's Day at the Women of the World Festival. Back for its ninth year running at London's Southbank Centre, the event aims to highlight the achievements of women and girls, as well as the obstacles they face across the world. Expect a programme of discussion, debate and activism including live conversations with Angela Davis and Naomi Klein.

CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL

Head to the rolling Cotswolds countryside to soak up the electric atmosphere of Cheltenham Festival. Showcasing four days of jump racing, the event is a key feature of the annual sporting calendar. Master the Ladies Day dress code with our exquisite occasionwear collection ‒ don't forget a fascinator!

ST PATRICK'S DAY IN DUBLIN

Where better to spend St Patrick's Day than on the Emerald Isle itself? Each year, Dublin plays host to a four day festival extravaganza celebrating all things Irish; think beer and whiskey festivals, colourful street carnivals and bustling parades. Dress for the occasion in this season's favourite shade of green.

MOTHER'S DAY AT KENWOOD HOUSE

Treat her to afternoon tea in stately surroundings. Situated on the edge of London's sprawling Hampstead heath, the Brew House at Kenwood House offers an atmospheric spot to enjoy freshly made sandwiches, tempting cakes and tea ‒ just like the historic women before you! Round off the day with a stroll through the grounds, which boast panoramic views of the capital. Our trench coats have you covered.

FEBRUARY

Chinese New Year in Manchester

Usher in the Year of the Pig in Manchester's Chinatown. An annual riot of colour, sounds and delicious smells, the city will be transformed into a bit of Beijing as lanterns, food stands and Chinese Craft stalls line the city's streets. But the festival's highlight has to be the Dragon Parade, which sees a 175 foot paper dragon, alongside a troupe of dancers and drummers. Layer up in lucky red.

Kenwood House Tour, Hampstead

Situated on the edge of Hampstead Heath, Kenwood is one of London's hidden gems. Home to an exquisite collection of artwork and furnishings, a tour around this neoclassical house is not to be missed. You'll discover the stories and history of the house as well as learn about Robert Adams' illustrious interior and the villa's world-renowned paintings. Wrap up in a chic coat before enjoying a stroll around its acres of grounds.

A Valentine's Break in Vienna

Whisk that special someone away for a romantic stay in Vienna. In between admiring the Austrian capital's beautiful baroque streets, imperial architecture and masterpiece-filled museums, be sure to stop by one of its opulent coffee houses for a spot of exquisite cake in equally exquisite surroundings. The chance of snow only adds to the romance ‒ pack a puffer!

Kew Gardens Festival of Orchids, London

A carnival of colour, Kew's annual festival of orchids is the perfect way to escape the winter gloom. Celebrating the breathtaking biodiversity of Colombia, enjoy a spectacular, orchid-laden display along a curated route inspired by the country's wildlife, river Caño Cristales and sprawling rainforests. Blend into the scenery in one of our equally vibrant floral prints.

JANUARY

BURNS NIGHT

Don our woollen tartans and partake in the centuries-old Scottish ritual of Burns Night. An annual event to celebrate the life of Scotland's national Bard, Robert Burns, the night traditionally centres around a hearty supper of haggis, neeps and tatties with a dash of whiskey, followed by recitals of Burns' poetry. Whether you're Scottish or not, it's the perfect excuse for a post-Christmas party!

A LONG WEEKEND IN MARRAKECH

Swap the January blues for the Majorelle blue of Yves Saint Laurent's Moroccan botanical garden. Often described as an unforgettable sensory experience, the ancient city of Marrakech offers a truly enchanting destination for a winter break. From getting lost in its labyrinth-like medina to taking in the sights and sounds of the lively Djemaa El Fna square, it's the perfect place to soak up some culture and winter sun.

WOMEN OF HAMPSTEAD EXHIBITION

To celebrate over 100 years since some women got the vote, Burgh House in London is dedicating an exhibition to the inspiring women of Hampstead. Shining a light on the female artists, poets, writers and politicians who lived in the area, 'All that I am Capable of Becoming' brings their stories to life through a curated collection of artwork and historic objects. Follow up with a stroll around the heath in one of our cosy coats.

LONDON ART FAIR

An unmissable opening to the international art calendar, the annual London Art Fair is back at the Business Design Centre for its 31st edition. Showcasing museum-quality modern and contemporary art from more than 100 galleries, it's a chance to discover sculptures, paintings, photographs and ceramics by internationally renowned artists, as well as attend a range of talks, tours, screenings and curated spaces. A comfy pair of flats is recommended.
