Ever since we heard that our favourite northern lass was collaborating with the most iconic British footwear brand, our hearts were all a flutter here at Tantrum, and the Agyness Deyn for Dr Martens collection did NOT disappoint. Think creeper-style shoes in black and cherry red, muted plaid, '90s daisy prints and a grungey colour palette and you've pretty much got it nailed.
Alongside the patent 1940 boots, chunky platform buckled goth boots and the velvet creepers, our fave piece from the whole collection was the heart-shaped satchel, available in 4 colours. We're torn between the oxblood and pale lilac, and with a strap that transforms the satchel into a rucksack, this is one A/W staple that will last seasons, and years to come.
Agyness Deyn for Dr Martens A/W '12 is available now, instore and online. Shop the whole collection here

One of our favourite jewellery gals, Maria Francesca Pepe has "always preferred buying a ring rather than a dress'" which is a good thing really considering her art lies in creating bold, classic, avant-garde jewellery. MFP came to realise her calling as a jewellery designer upon graduating from CSM, London. Her designs are always one of our favourites to see at LFW, however now we can get our Pepe fix on a regular basis- Yes you can all have a little celebratory wiggle because If you haven't heard already, MFP has infused her rather perfect mix of femininity and edginess into an 8-piece collection for Urban Outfitters. We hope you are all as excited as we are! If the time it took to leave Tantrum HQ to the nearest store was an Olympic sport, Britain would be in for another gold.
This jewellery line is like no other; each piece is hand selected and the care and craftsmanship is to an impeccable standard, making sure that each design suits the Urban Outfitters' customer - definitely worth the investment! With an avid following from long time ambassadors, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Pixie Lott, among many others, it's one not to miss.
Crosses, crystals and turquoise adorn chunky twisted ropes for statement necklaces and bracelets, while hexagonal studs and geometric shapes toughen up rings, earrings and bangles.The result is a collection that is elegant but never predictable.
Exclusively at Urban Outfitters stores throughout UK and US www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk
