What fashion trend(s) are you most excited about in the coming seasons?
I'm a bit of a classics girl so I'm enjoying the return to classic indigo denim and the continuing appropriation of menswear for women. I love utilitarian menswear for daytime as it's comfortable and functional, but I like to add personality with colourful accessories, especially sunglasses and watches
What fashion trend(s) have you been horrified by in the past?
I'm not a fan of mules and I'm deeply disturbed by their return! Also, trousers with slits up the sides, jeggings and platform stilettos.
You walk into the best consignment shop in London. Which celebrity do you hope secretly consigns there?
Stella Tennant! And HRH The Queen - can we class her as a celeb? I would love to get my hands on her kilts, twinsets and Launer handbags.
What album will you never get sick of?
The Clash - Sandinista.
What high-street store always impresses you?
COS - it has its own signature and feels very modern.
Who is your current favourite British designer?
I love Marques'Almeida. They pioneered the whole grungy, raw-edged denim thing and their shows always have good styling and casting. There's also a great new-ish knitwear brand called ESK that does very innovative things with cashmere and wool. The silhouettes are updated classics and the colour palettes are always spot on. I also still love Preen.
What is the can't-miss party/club night in London right now?
No idea! But my boyfriend runs a reggae night called Rootikal which is always very messy and brilliant fun
Kate Moss in Playboy—love or hate?
Haven't seen it but i think keeping your clothes on is more radical these days
Feelings on Marc Jacobs leaving Louis Vuitton? Jil Sander leaving Jil Sander…again?
I'm ready for newness at Vuitton and I love Nicolas Ghesquiere.
What pop culture moment of 2013 spoke to you the most?
The epic return of Nile Rodgers
