Socks of many colours

*does the sock dance*

Putting socks back on after weeks of bare feet in summer sandals feels strange and wonderful doesn’t it? *does the sock dance* So we’re putting the style into sock season aka autumn with a brand new pair of foot warmers, after having discovered the bright and bold charms of sock purveyors Look Mate. This London-based label has a very simple concept – they collaborate with artists of the moment to produce – socks, obviously. Our favourite pair has to be the blue, orange, pink and yellow Super Sock, designed by artist and designer Rob Lowe (no relation) aka Supermundane, who is all about a distinctive use of colour and line. Super Sock, £10, Look Mate
