Your Five-A-Day

Fruit and fashion go together like, well, apples and pears. We love the slices of fruity delights popping up at the moment. It all started back in 2012 – Prada featured Bananas, Stella McCartney had the Citrus, and Moschino brought the Apples – and, ever since, the fruit salad has been here to stay.

So, there’s no excuse for not having your 5 a day – especially when you can wear it on your face, in your hair and on your feet …
