I recently visited the fabulous boutique Rohmir just off Bond Street and what a refreshing experience it was! Focusing on the Garcon era of the Twenties and Thirties, designer Olga Roh's pieces have a magnificent grandeur about them yet with all the soft romantic touches any woman yearns for. Think jet-set fabulousness with a feminine allure. This is indeed a nod to towards the sleek sophistication that our European counterparts do so well.

The luxury ready-to-wear collections are made from ultra-fine materials such as silks and cashmere, transcending from day to evening wear and featuring tailored dresses and trousers, complemented by fitted jackets with delicate and detailed separates. The pieces work perfectly for mothers-of-the-bride while the party dresses are ideal for bridesmaids or going-away outfits. Prices from £400 to £4,000. Visit Rohmir, 58 Maddox Street, London, W1S 1AY. 0207 499 8350; or see www.rohmir.com to preview the range.
