What are your favourite places to shop?
I never wear anything that’s not from Matches. If I can’t find something, then I come into the buying office in a very bad mood and say girls we are failing! If I can’t find it I feel we are letting our customer down.
What are the key pieces for the perfect summer wardrobe?
The kaftan – Talitha kaftans are my favourite – I have drawers full of them – kaftans are another thing I over buy although I’ve started throwing an over size shirt over bikinis instead.
Summer sandal – Alvaro sandal are my new sandal crush, I love their their stingray flat.
Perfect Summer dress – I love my new Isabel Marant dress in khaki cheese cloth with the eyelets around the hem.
Bikini or one piece? – Heidi Klein, Melissa Odabash for bikinis – I’m quite classic with my swimwear in black or navy and white stripe. I like a one piece for swimming in.
The off the shoulder top – by The Row. Women in general have great shoulders, it’s an area that I like – off the shoulder is a good way to go at the moment and great for any age.
What new designer discovery have you made recently that you are excited about stocking?
I’m most excited about Thomas Tait – I think he has a cool new aesthetic and he’s going to conquer the world. I also love Rachel Comey, whose doing that relaxed girl around town. I love her aesthetic, I think she’s conquered Brooklyn and now she’s going to conquer the world. For me she has something like Isabel Marant but more New York, more laid back, less super sexy, just easy pieces.
