I feel sorrier-than-sorry for Megan Lane, who had to write this piece of fashion-pastiche journalism for the BBC.

Listen to me, Megan: brown was the new black like, four years ago. And purple for autumn? Wasn't that last autumn? Or the autumn before? old is the new new, is where we're at, and we don't care. The beeb is not where I go for sartorial advice.

Repeat after me, BBC: you're losing your way; stick to your core business - news, information - and stop pretending you're the Face or Dazed and Confused or London Fashionweek news or something. Stop. The Renaissance is over, this is the age of specialisation, just do what you're good at.
