News, views and inspiration from the Anne Furbank Group Spring 2014

The joys of Spring have sprung – buds are bursting through the ground, the promise of colour in our garden is greatly anticipated, longer days and lighter evenings lift the soul and we ourselves, come out of hibernation. There is always an air of optimism as soon as we head into January – we may still be in the throws of winter but there is light at the end of the tunnel and we are delighted whenever there is a glimpse of sunshine and warmth in the air. I’m also delighted that the fashion designers have continued with the love of colour: bright corals and turquoise give the collections a tropical feeling and the softness of denim blues is a great transition from winter to summer. We’ve also found some great new collections for you, which are introduced later in the magazine. They come from one of the homes of fashion, Italy, and the lesser known fashion destination of Croatia! We have a new General Manager in The George – introductions later – and Head Chef, Jose Graziosi continues to delight us all with his amazing food. There have been some great trips to suppliers, giving some quite extraordinary insight into food specialities. I hope you enjoy catching up on our news and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Spring 2014



Mirror mirror in my bag We pick a week each Spring – usually the first week in March – when we like to shout from the hilltops that the ‘NEW SPRING COLLECTIONS HAVE ARRIVED’. We have bubbly and we have models, who are happy to show you anything you want to see on; we have our girls who will help you choose everything from a pair of trousers to a new Spring wardrobe and on top of all this we like to give you a little present.

Nothing has changed this year, so make a note in your diary, pick a day in the week and come and have a great day out. In 2014, our Spring Launch starts on Monday 3rd March and continues right through until Saturday 8th March. We will be showcasing brands from across the world and,

with over 50 labels to choose from, you are sure to find something to tempt you and put you in the Spring mood. Our gift to you this Spring is the most delightful and pretty compact mirror and it is complimentary with your purchase during our Spring Launch.

Replenish and refresh Why not make a day of your shopping by enjoying lunch or afternoon tea at The George, right next door to the shop. Our delicious lunch menu gives you the choice of two-courses for £16, or three for just £19, and if you can’t quite manage that, choose from the bar menu which offers a selection of sandwiches and light snacks. Afternoon tea offers something a little more decadent and you can choose from a Cream Tea £4.95, a Confectioners Tea £8.95, or our full High Tea £12.50.

Spring 2014

Coral sea Colours are often described in sensory terms – cold, hot, hard, soft – and this season’s collections offer a sensory overload. Designers have been inspired by the world beneath the waves, with the delightful warm coral taking centre stage. Coral is a great colour for most people, whether you are dark or pale, both in complexion and hair colour, coral is a warming colour and if colours had smiles it would be the Cheshire Cat of them all. Team this with a seabed of colour from turquoise to crisp white and you have collections that look new, fresh and ready to take on the sunny days ahead. Betty Barclay, Marc Cain, Marc Aurel and Oui all have their own take on this season’s coral colour.

without the sadness Having taken a fashion holiday for a couple of years, navy is now back but alongside the classic navy, there are more blue alternatives in the offing.


Spring 2014

Denim blue is dominant in the blues corner, closely followed by cornflower and cool ice blues. Denim blue is a good colour – although hard wearing in textile form, the colour of denim has a softness about it. Blue is known as a cold colour – denim is far from being arctic cool. This season’s collections use the denim fabric in its feminine form. The clothes are not grungy and raw – more Pretty Woman than The Terminator. Denim is used in skirts and shirts as well as jackets. Teaming all this with printed tops and blouses really does give a new, prettier take on a modern classic. Armani Jeans is obviously a key player in the denim market, having stuck to its routes of clean, classic styles and the use of natural fabrics.

Desert storm Sometimes less is more – simple styling and clean colours help create a cool, sophisticated look that is natural in its conception and delivery. Soft hues of sandstone, taupes, blush and nude are perfectly blended together this season to give you an alternative to the coral fields of the deep ocean floor. These colours work best with uncomplicated cuts and designs, no fuss just pure elegance. They look great layered as they all blend into one vanilla cocktail of pure delight. New Italian collection, Rosso 35, work this look brilliantly, completing the earthy feel by using natural fabrics of cotton and linen, not overworking the design but still offering an element of creativity with oversized shirts teamed with slim Capri pants and mixing spots with stripes but in colours so muted they don’t fight with each other. If you have an earth mother in you this desert storm is one to embrace.


Spring 2014

Which fashion personality are you?

We are all pretty consistent in what we wear, we all find our fashion style without realising and if we take a look in our own wardrobes there will be a look that is carried through. We can all admire, from afar, someone else’s style but if you don’t feel comfortable in it, you won’t be able to carry it off. New trends can come and go and it is good to dabble in a new look but to what extent you take it, will depend on your fashion personality. We wear clothes we like and feel comfortable in. Understanding and accepting your fashion style will only help you carry your clothes well. The Minimalist – you like sleek, simple shapes in monochrome, a toned down palate is what you look for to keep this look sleek and sharp.

The Lady – Grace Kelly’s white-glove look maybe a little old fashioned, but her prim, polished, pulled-together air still resonates with you, giving you a refined look.

The Bombshell – sexy is the mantra for you and picking pieces that show off a curvy feminine figure is the norm.

The Bohemian – bell-bottoms may have given way to breezy frocks, but the freespirited style appeals and you love earthy, ethnic inspired looks.

The Eclectic – it’s all about having fun with fashion – bright colours and madcap pairings are all part of the package.

The Classicist – you prefer the basics – t-shirts, blazer, white shirt, suit and trousers – and look effortlessly chic in simple staple pieces.

The Maverick – you love new designers and bold looks – bring them on! You are not afraid to experiment and will embrace all the new trends. 11

New for Spring 14 Finding a new collection is one of life’s little delights. When you see a quality collection that is new, innovative, different and wearable there is an excitement that comes from deep within. Clothes on a rail have to have that initial draw, whether it is colour or texture, to get excited about. A new collection has to work even harder to provide that whoop from deep within. Buying for Spring 14 caused us more whoops of delight than expected. We are bringing you four new brands from across Europe. Rosso 35 is a beautiful Italian

collection of seperates. The style is clean and chic, with muted tones and simple lines. This collection is a wearable must have. Joyce and Girls, also from Italy, is the complete opposite. It is a lively collection of dresses and tops defined by exclusive prints and hand embroideries. Made from stretch silk, chiffon and silk georgette, it feels incredible against the skin.

Spring 2014 Xenia Design could not be further from the two collections opposite. This collection is from Croatia. It is perfect for those of you who like something a little different and quirky. Monochrome black and cream dresses with a difference. From Spain, we found a little collection called Argiddo. Perfect outfits for dressing up days – whether it is racing or guest at a wedding. Inexpensive, yet stylish, in pretty colours and textured fabrics, all it needs is the accessories. Xevia design

Day trip to Ge

With Company Founder Helmut Schlotterer’

We were so impressed by our trip to the HQ of Marc Cain we decided to take the whole team. On two consecutive days in October, 16 Anne Furbank girls flew to Strasbourg and were transported to the home of Marc Cain.


‘Our trip in the summer was so informative and inspirational,’ said Rebecca Furbank, ‘I wanted to take the whole team to experience it. ‘Marc Cain is still a privately owned business and one that has a long term plan. It is not funded by financiers who want to make a quick buck. It is driven by a man passionate about his product and caring about his team. ‘Don’t get me wrong, this is a thriving business with global business goals but there is a work ethic and an attention to detail that is rare to find in such a big company.

‘It is a little like stepping into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Everywhere is pristine white and despite working with fabrics there is not a bit of fluff anywhere to be found. ‘It is impressive from the approach when you see the robotic grass nibblers manoeuvre over the beautifully manicured lawns but it is the business philosophy which is so great to see. They work hard, they strive to create the best designs with the best fabrics, they look after their workforce and constantly re-invest in their business.’

Spring 2014

ermany Needless to say all the girls came back full of praise and enthusiasm for a brand that really is one of the best. Those that couldn’t make the trip to Germany were invited to the Marc Cain Fashion Coaching in London to give them all the style inspiration for the coming season.

‘Tis the season There is nothing like a wedding – it’s exciting, romantic and fun! Good planning will help make the day run smoothly, however big or small the wedding may be. Traditions help to give a formality to the proceedings but new ideas can give a wedding a truly personal touch. Dressing up is one tradition that has stood the test of time. No matter what the venue may be, it is the opportunity for the bride to look like a princess and the mothers of the bride and groom to send off their children in style. The fashion business is truly global but, when it comes to weddings, the UK designers really understand the market. This year, John Charles takes its inspiration from the world of Strictly Come Dancing with sheer sleeves adorned with beading giving a truly glamorous look to the occasion, as well as offering something that can be worn well into the evening. Ian Stuart outfits have a couture feeling about them, reminiscent of the Grace Kelly era with fitted bodices, beautiful button detailing and layered silk. Olvi’s use the most delightful French stretch lace in their dress designs which flatter the body and offer the arm coverage that so many mothers seek.


The colours are as diverse and pretty as the daywear collections with cornflower blues, salmon pinks, shimmering champagne and classically smart, navy and cream. Condici, one of the UK’s leading occasionwear brands, continues to offer beautifully styled outfits perfect for any wedding and, with their matching hats, the outfits look amazing in any wedding line-up.

to get married

Buying your ‘Mother of the Bride/Groom’ outfit

1. Give yourself time: trying on clothes takes longer than you think. 2. Be prepared to try something different: having some idea about what you want is good but don’t be afraid to try something you hadn’t thought of. 3. Be comfortable: you will be wearing your outfit for a long time on the day so make sure you are comfortable in it and not fidgeting. 4. Avoid down-brimmed hats: you will be in the photographs and a down-brim will create a shadow across your face 5. Accessorise: remember the accessories are just as important as the outfit. They add the finishing touch.

Shoe in a Bag Ever been caught in a pair of heels when your feet just don’t want to take another step, when the balls are throbbing and the toes tensing? Have no fear – the Bagllerina is here! The first foldable shoe made entirely of leather. Designer Christine Nadine had the idea when she was managing her PR company. She was always in a hurry managing her business and personal life and comfort was not always at her fingertips.

The Bagllerina shoe is fully foldable, lightweight and fits nicely in a small pouch which can easily be carried around in your handbag. We bring you the summer sandal version which is perfect to give those tired feet a rest and even more perfect for holidays and short breaks. Available in five different colours, from a size 4 – 7.

Why not wear a scarf? Whether the calendar says it’s autumn, spring, winter or summer, a scarf is always a tasteful and wise choice to add to your wardrobe. It can take centre stage, add colour and vibrancy to an outfit and indeed add a bit of warmth without the need for a jacket.

ECHO designs has everything from floral silks, to dots and stripes; butterflies and postcards to tassles and embroidery. Go for a colour that suits and throw it around your neck like a Parisian striding along the Champs Elysees.

Lady court This season not only do we give you the ever popular K&S patent court, the most comfortable killer heel you could imagine, we also bring you the K&S patent mid-heel court and the K&S kitten heel slingback – we are in shoe heaven at Anne Furbank. We have shoes that look beautiful and feminine with elegant heels and all the comfort of a slipper. If you don’t believe us, come and try for yourself. Available in nude, denim, black, taupe, grey, lemon, lavender, coral and navy.

British Record Thwarted Anne’s attempt to break the British record for her age category (65/70) in the Florence marathon was thwarted at the final hurdle when she picked up a hamstring injury on her last 24 mile training run. ‘I have to admit I struggled on a training camp in Portugal in September with a couple of niggles, plus I battled with the heat,’ said Anne. ‘I still felt I was capable of a good time, as I had been training hard since May but it was not to be and I made the decision not to compete as I would be risking far more damage if I did run.’ Right decision! Anne is now back to full fitness and raring to go!

‘Generally speaking, this winter has been quite challenging with the weather being so foul. Wind and rain have made my long runs less pleasurable but Spring is round the corner and I can’t wait to enjoy the beautiful countryside and secluded footpaths which abound in Cambridgeshire.’

Anne floats at Christmas Christmas 2013 will stay in my memory for many years to come! As both sons celebrated Christmas with their in-laws in different parts of the country, Richard and I decided to spend ours on Rasmunda (our narrow boat). We put the plan to my mother and my sister and they thought it was a splendid idea, bearing in mind that my mother is 92! Anyway we arrived at the boat the day before Christmas Eve, in shocking weather, wondering whether we would even be able to get out of the Marina. Luckily, by midday on Christmas Eve, the sun came out and we headed off in high spirits on the north Oxford canal. We moored in a lovely quiet rural spot, and played cards til late. We woke on Christmas morning, again in glorious sunshine. Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and bucks fizz started the day well and then we adorned ourselves in the compulsory ‘onesie’ for the rest of the day. Roast turkey and all the trimmings were served up from my little galley

and Downtown Abbey was enjoyed before we all turned in, having had a lovely day. The picture of my 92 year old mother in her very ‘up market’ onesie will live with me forever!

Thoughts from a 40 something... Twice a year I impart my knowledge and experiences of a 40 something daughter, mother, wife and worker to you all. However, this Spring 2014, I am going to completely indulge myself and gloat unmercifully about the monster salmon I caught.


For the record I am not an experienced fisherwoman. My husband Tim on the other hand has been fishing since he could walk. He has been all over the country as well as places as far flung as Norway and Russia in pursuit of the illusive salmon. I decided, as the children were getting older, that this is a hobby we could share in our old age, So in September I went for my first day’s fly fishing on the River Wear in County Durham. My husband had the patience of a Saint and spent the whole day standing in the river by my side teaching me the timing and technique of fly casting. We saw fish but, alas, not a nibble.

Undeterred by an empty net I went back for more on the last day of the season. A beautiful but cold day, kitted out in thermals and waders for another day’s fishing. And what a day it was, I caught my first salmon, then I caught another one and another one and then I caught a monster! This fish was so big it wouldn’t fit in the net and Tim had to tail it (a technical term for grabbing around the tail as I pulled it in nearer). Without scales the weight of the fish cannot be verified but having emailed the picture to all of Tim’s fishing buddies it is estimated to be around 30lb.

Was there a hint of jealousy from Tim, not a bit, just a very proud husband and as he caught 6 on the day as well. It was what you call dream fishing.

Womenswear Brand of the Year 2013 Joseph Ribkoff won the prestigious Womenswear Brand of the Year 2013 at a fabulous Independent Drapers Awards held at the Waldolf Hilton in November. Mark Rowe who is in charge of the brand in the UK squealed with delight when the announcement was made. Anne Furbank was invited to present the award. She said, ‘It really is a great brand, which understands women. They are a great company to work with. The award is very well deserved.’

At the same awards Marc Cain was given the Premium Fashion Brand of the Year Award. ‘We are delighted to stock both winning brands in the shop,’ said Anne. ‘It was a very exciting event, not only for the brands, but for us as well.’

Introducing new Hotel Manager At the end of 2013 we said a fond farewell to Cynthia Schaeffer, our General Manager in the hotel for the last 8 years. Cynthia has left the world of hospitality behind to settle down on the farm with her partner Tom. Philip hit the floor running starting in the middle of the December Christmas rush. A month flew by with hardly a moment to realise what was happening. The last few weeks have given Philip the opportunity to really get to know the people, the place and what it all means. ‘Cynthia leaving was both a happy and sad occasion,’ said Anne Furbank. ‘We were sad that she was leaving us but delighted that she has found such happiness with Tom and her new life. ‘She gave us eight years and looked after The George like it was her own. I know she will be missed by many of you but I also know Cynthia would not be happy leaving the hotel without ‘I am very excited about taking on the role of ensuring she had left it in capable hands. I will GM, I know I have big shoes to fill but I also know I have a strong team at The George which be forever grateful for everything that Cynthia gave us and wish her all the best for the future. will help me look after the place,’ said Philip. ‘I am delighted to welcome Philip into the fold ‘It is such a beautiful place, the food is and look forward to working with him for many incredible and the whole team work hard years to come.’ to give their very best to look after all our customers.’ Eight years is a long time but to ensure she left the hotel in good hands she was put in charge of recruiting her replacement - introducing Philip Reeves. Like Cynthia, Philip has been in the hospitality industry most of his working life and worked through the ranks culminating as Deputy General Manager of the Brownsover Hall Hotel in Rugby.

“It is such a beautiful place, the food is incredible”

Birthday Champagne offer We’ve rolled back the price of a glass of champagne to the price it was when we first opened the doors to the hotel 10 years ago. For the month of April you can enjoy Taittinger “Nocturne” champagne for just £6.75 a glass.

Happy 10th Birthday! It is incredible to think that the hotel celebrates its 10th birthday this March. ‘Sometimes it seems like only yesterday that we were knocking down walls, and having cold sweats about owning a hotel,’ said Anne. ‘Then other times it feels like it has been ours forever ‘Ten years is a long time and I am still hugely proud of the place, I get a tremendous feeling of satisfaction when new people discover us and are completely gobsmacked that such a place exists outside of London. ‘I have been very lucky with the team that have worked with us over the years, students working part-time that have come and gone and those that have worked with us from the start. ‘The passion our Head Chef, Jose, has for his food is infectious, he has even inspired me to learn more about food and cooking.’

Champagne is the celebration drink and it would only be right to have a champagne celebration for our 10th birthday. So starting on our birthday day, Sunday 30th March (Mother’s Day), and continuing right through until the end of April we have a very special offer for you. We have wound back the clock 10 years when the cost of a glass of champagne was £6.75 and we are sticking to that price. For one whole month you will be able to order Taittinger Nocturne NV by the glass for just £6.75. ‘Looking back the transformation is amazing, looking forward, here’s to another 10 years!,’ said Anne.

Cat Coffee It came as a slight surprise, with the unsurprising reaction of Urggh, when staff at the hotel discovered that one of the most expensive coffees in the world is made from coffee beans that have passed through a Civet Cat, collected, cleaned and ready to grind! This discovery was made on a trip to the Master Roast Coffee Company. Where staff went to learn more about the intricacies of coffee. Superviser, Sam Emery said; ‘The trip was fascinating, I never knew there was so

much to learn about coffee. Not only about how to make the perfect coffee but about the blends and the processes taken before the coffee is delivered to us.’ Needless to say Civet Coffee is not on the menu at The George, however, the staff do make a rather excellent Latte.

Chef performing at Olympia Head Chef, Jose Graziosi, has been asked to perform at Hotelympia in April. This prestigious trade fair offers inspiration for hoteliers and restauranters from all over the UK. Chefs asked in the Skillery section of the fair perform a signature dish in front of an audience who know their Beaver Dam from their Tangarine Dream (types of chillis). ‘It is an honour to be asked to perform at Hotelympia,’ said Jose, ‘The pressure won’t be in creating the food, it will be in creating the dish,


in a kitchen I am unfamiliar with. I am really looking forward to it.’ In a small way Chef had a little practice when he invited friends, chefs and suppliers, to a private dinner on a quiet Sunday evening. ‘Everyone bought something with them and we had a culinary feast, with wines to match each dish,’ said Jose. The highlights of the evening had to be the truffle infused scrambled egg served in mini brioche and the impressive suckling pig.

Wine fit for a Royal To really understand a product there is nothing quite like seeing it from its birthplace through to production. Front of House Manager, Lorela Movileanu, was the lucky one to visit the home of our house Cava, Castillo Perelada, Brut Reserva, in Spain. As the name suggests the setting was pretty spectacular with the vineyard set around a magnificent Castle, on the North East coast of Spain near to Barcelona. Documents show wine production there from the Middle Ages, an art that was re-introduced when Miguel Mateu bought the ensemble of buildings in 1923.

It was a truly amazing place, I learnt so much Three generations on, wine production is in full swing, Cava is their speciality, the Gran Claustro, being a favourite of the Spainish Royal Family whenever they have a celebration. ‘It was a truly amazing place, I learnt so much, understanding the process of grape production and how the soil in the area and the sea climate all contribute to producing such a fine crop. I learnt about the longer aging process to produce a more interesting Cava and saw the whole bottling process. It was fascinating. ‘I even managed a visit to their spa where the soap is made with the grape skins that are discarded!’ Castillo Perelada, Brut Reserva, Cava is available by the glass at The George for £5.60/glass. 29
