You’ll need plenty of peanuts for this

black peanutsUltra-cool Mayfair clothier Dover Street Market has occupied that tricky space between runway and pavement for years, stocking collections from Comme des Garçons, YSL and Alexander McQueen alongside pieces with a decidedly more mainstream appeal. Take for instance the new Black Peanuts collection. Here, DSM reaches for an American pop culture icon so old it’s almost new, but does so with considerable designer panache. The collection revives sexagenarian comic dog Snoopy and his sidekick Woodstock as a series of chic black figurines, jumpers, hoodies, bags and wallets – even as an Eames chair. True to form, the limited edition collection embraces the popular but never stoops to the populist. Then again, with prices ranging from £115 to £1,535, the store has its high fashion customers firmly in sight. Nick Aveling
