So 'dishevelled chic' is the key fashion trend for next summer according to Miuccia Prada and the Milan catwalks. I'm pleased to report that it's a look I've been practicing for some time - ever since moving to rural France in fact.
I particularly excelled at the look last week when my hairbrush went missing for several days. Biff, I eventually discovered, had hidden it behind the sofa, with the result that I started to bear an uncanny resemblance to him (ie long hair falling in front of the eyes; not the black beard). So it seems that we are both ahead of the curve on this one.
