10 July 19: Oliver Bonas Christmas in July

Hands up who has a drawer with discarded keys in it?

I have. I dare not even go and count how many there are in there. All I know is that I’m pretty sure they’re breeding – fast. The Colour File’s burgeoning key community lives in the ‘useful’ drawer in the kitchen, also immortalised as ‘the man drawer’ by comedian Michael McIntyre. Apparently a mere 14 per cent of us hoard old keys, which surprises me, given how fast they breed.

This glorious wall of keys was at the @oliverbonas AW19 Press event where the theme was ‘Opulent Hospitality’ of the kind you’d get on the Orient Express. I’m not sure how they’ve done it but Oliver Bonas have been really nailing the colours in the past year or so.

I don’t think the sensation of luxuriating in Christmas themes and decorations in the heat of July will ever be anything other than intrinsically strange but I love seeing what’s to come in the next few months (in this case, starting in September). Swipe through for a taste of things to come.
