V&A mirror

V&A 70‘s Fashion Pocket Mirror by Lesley Barnes


Every year I thoroughly savour trawling through the V&A’s online shop for presents at Christmas, I always find something charming and unconventional and it’s great to be able to support independent and up-and-coming designers.


For an unusual, non-high street stocking-filler, I really love this pocket mirror created by Glaswegian designer and illustrator Lesley Barnes, and commissioned by the V&A in conjunction with their Italian Fashion exhibition. There are two gorgeous, distinctive designs to choose from, both celebrating retro fashion in cool graphic prints. Useful to pop in a handbag, you could be proud to whip this out and check your lipstick/spinach-teeth.


Reflecting your interest in art and fashion is easy at £3.50 a pop.
