As a perennially chilly Italian living in London, the moment the nights start to draw in, I immediately gravitate towards the warmth provided by turtlenecks, velvet and cashmere. Not every item in my selection here will reinvent the fashion wheel – indeed, you might already have some of these at the back of your closet – but each will fill a gap in your wardrobe, providing countless solutions for braving the winter.
It’s not new, but it’s a truly great buy. Being the perfect size, the Hampstead has become one of my most worn bags of all time, and I love the brick red that is such a classic winter colour.

During the summer denim gets somewhat overlooked for my beloved dresses, but I always come back to it around this time of year. Add a soft cashmere and ankle boots, et voila.
