Chunky boots with socks: check. Vintage inspired frocks: check. Unicorn clutch bags: check check check! It goes without saying that here at Skinnydip we love THE WHITEPEPPER (and the gorgeous gals behind it). We met the East London brand while in Berlin and we dig their style. TWP is a super cool clothing brand that you need to get to know. From cute polka dot ‘Angel’ dresses to super luxe coats and jackets TWP offer classic pieces with a quirky edge. They have just launched their new autumn/winter collection ‘Fry Up’ which is firm fave so far. Printed fried egg two pieces sit next to bean-embroidered blazers and believe us it still keeps its sleek aesthetic with that added fun element.
