Reinventing the Sweatsuit

Shot in collaboration with Uniqlo Reinventing the Sweatsuit   – An unexpected shape in an expected fabric, is giving me the unexpected silhouette I never knew I wanted. In a stroke of genius, the creative team at Uniqlo has created the U Wide-fit curved pant. Slightly tailored, slightly structured but altogether comfortable and effortless, the […]

Iconic Cashmere

In partnership with Uniqlo Iconic Cashmere   – You had me at cashmere! Road testing my new, 100% cashmere, Uniqlo crewneck in my favorite New York neighborhood, Soho. While I’m a firm believer no cashmere is bad cashmere, there are some better than others. What makes this Uniqlo knit stand out to me? I love […]

How to be (successfully) overdressed

In this look: Dress: Hana Tajima for Uniqlo How to be (successfully) overdressed. Hint: channel Holly Golightly, in the supermarket, on the train, at the Laundromat… Created in collaboration with Uniqlo Australia Everyone is looking at you – whispered my commute companion, gesturing at the gaggle of archetypal scarved-to-the-upper-lip Parisian Madames that were our fellow passengers. ‘I guess you’re a bit overdressed for the Metro’, he concluded. Had I the get-up-and-go to argue at that moment, I might have suggested a number of similarly plausible explanations more kind to my eight in the morning delicate self-esteem. However, glancing down at my flowy bias cut dress (from the functional and beautiful Hana Tajima for Uniqlo collection), the floor length skirt of which almost needed a seat all on its own, and feeling the weight of my oversized sunglasses on the bridge of my nose, I had to admit to feeling somewhat ridiculous within the context of this commonplace scenario. As one determined to experience life by living out film references, I felt very much like a Holly Golightly in that quintessential Audrey Hepburn film. The protagonist, lending circumstance to the film’s name, takes a flimsy takeaway pastry and coffee breakfast while […]

Your New Year’s Work Capsule Wardrobe

6 Steps to your New Year’s work capsule wardrobe Wearing: Black Long Coat, Olive Coat & Olive Pants – Uniqlo x Carin Roitfeld Collection | T-shirt – Isabel Marant | Bag – Givenchy “Antigona” | Gold Boots – Office If office farewell cards are the informative plaques of one’s achievements, then mine from my first job were frivolous indeed – ‘Good luck, we loved your outfits’ was a neatly penned sentiment I remember quite distinctly. Even leaving aside any aspersions as to my effectiveness as a lawyer vis-à-vis my sartorial feats, this one-liner was doubly curious as it came from that pretty girl in coms. Said girl, by her stereotype-affirming pencil skirt and stiletto heel uniform, I gathered would have thought of my minimalist aesthetic as nothing other than matronly. That is not to say, of course, that I cared any less about my appearance in the office. My focus, rather than to wow my co-workers with one punchy look after another, was simply to maintain an effective work capsule wardrobe that for instant morning prep. This, it seemed, was the object of admiration for the PR girls in cubicles adjacent. When it comes to workwear, it’s not always easy to […]

A Few Nights In Marsanne

There’s something about the village of Marsanne that I fell utterly in love with the first time we visited, over a year ago. We arrived at 11pm in the dark, stayed just one night and left the next morning after breakfast but I knew it was somewhere I wanted to spend more time. When we […]

Postcards From The Camargue

We started our “mini-moon” in The Camargue, an area of France defined by its salt plains and marsh lands; and famous for its white horses, flamingoes and bulls (sorry, I didn’t manage to capture a shot of any of these animals, just a friendly donkey). The Camargue is very different to anywhere else I’ve been […]

Breton Stripes & A Leather Bomber

Transitioning from spring to summer can be difficult, you leave the house and the sun’s out and it’s a rather pleasant 18°C and then the next the next thing you know it’s down to 12°C before it’s even lunchtime. Choosing the right layers and fabrics is important for getting your trans-seasonal wardrobe right. A leather […]
