Alice Casely-Hayford has her finger on the fashion pulse. As the content director of NET-A-PORTER and PORTER magazine, she is firmly tuned in to what’s new, next and exciting. Add to this a honed eye for design classics (no doubt passed down from her designer father, the late Joe Casely-Hayford) and it’s little wonder the style insider’s new-season wish list is as covetable as they come.
“I love statement jewellery, and this Lauren Rubinski chain with coloured enamel (part of our PS22 Shopping List) is the perfect piece to elevate an everyday look.”
“Priya Ahluwalia, who just had her incredible debut solo show at London Fashion Week, is one my favourite new designers. This dress is absolutely gorgeous. It can be dressed up or down, and I’m so impressed by Priya’s commitment to sustainability.”
“Renaissance Renaissance, one of the talented designers falling under our new Vanguard Education Fund mentorship scheme, is renowned for intricate detailing. This skirt is one of my favourites for a glamorous occasion.”
“I find splashes of colour around the home so uplifting, which is why this set of gold-plated porcelain espresso cups by La DoubleJ is currently top of my wish list – what better way to drink morning coffee?”
“As I return to the office with more regularity, this JW Anderson crocheted tote has become my go-to as it fits my laptop and all my daily essentials. On the weekend it doubles up as the perfect bag to stuff my son’s toys into. With the vibrant colours, I think he wishes it was his!”
“I interviewed Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at the end of last year for a PORTER cover story celebrating the launch of Rose Inc on NET-A-PORTER. This toner has been the latest addition to my skincare regime and it has completely transformed my complexion, which was really suffering from me being a new mum.”
“Khaite’s pieces are truly wish-list worthy, and this gorgeous Remi Hobo bag is calling my name with its buttery leather and gorgeous silhouette. We are thrilled to have Khaite founder, Cate Holstein, as one of our influential mentors in our Vanguard scheme.”
“This green cut-out midi dress is helping me dream of warmer weather, and is part of our incredible NET SUSTAIN platform, highlighting pieces that are created with sustainability in mind. Plus, I love styles that can be dressed up or down, and this is the perfect piece to be worn for multiple spring/summer occasions.”
