In times when we have discovered who our real friends are and in no particular order, Mes Soeurs et Moi from Belgium reassuringly provides us with a collection of quietly different clothing. Using an ecofriendly cloth, it is relaxed and easy to care for, with the added bonus of being competitively priced.

From Italy, Mama-b never strays. This wonderful and now very popular brand makes plain sailing in effortless style and comfort. Here is a firm understanding of the needs of women today, in all walks of life.

Zyga from Paris is also a steadfast friend. If you enjoy riotous colours this is your stop. The careful designs in natural fabrics include co-ordinates and dresses that don’t pinch, either on the person or the pocket.

As ever, Nook continues to be one of our positive and up-beat fashion statements for the fuller figure. The designer, originally a botanist, continues to be inspired and we revel in what that brings to the clothes in the blossoming shapes and microscopic prints.

Annette Görtz from Dusseldorf is reliably one of our most wholesome, characterful and arty collections. Each piece is in many ways pivotal and very personal. When we talk about investment clothing, we are talking about putting down roots, taking ownership and showing courage in who we are and in what we would hope lies ahead for us in the future. Sometimes, really good clothes get us that way.
