Did you have any early influences that sparked your interest in clothes?
My 7thÂ grade science teacher never wore the same outfit twice. Thatâ€™s always stuck in my head and has encouraged me to dress differently every day.
What do you read to begin your day?
I read The Economist and The Cut for daily updates and love flicking through UK or Australian ELLE DĂ©cor. However, I am obsessed with Assouline books at the moment, especially the Chanel leather-bound set by Francois Baudot & Francois Aveline!
I love browsing unusual antique & interiors shops â€“ my favorites include Flair in Florence, BDDW & John Derian in New York, and Alfies Antique Market in Marylebone. For a sweet indulgence I love Todos Santos Chocolates & Confections in Santa Fe, New Mexico…itâ€™s heavenly.
Do you collect any particular antiques?
I started picking up sculptures of hands on my travels, Â I now have quite a selection from across the globe– there are so many different styles. They’re really interesting and unusual interior decorations, not to mention a great conversation topic!
Most visually inspiring place?
Big Sur in California, it’s endlessly breathtaking to see nature at its purest.
What do you always have on hand when traveling?
A good pair of sunglasses is vital for long travel days; I like Thierry Lasry’s cat-eye frame glasses.
Do you use shoe trees?
Saint Crispinâ€™s hand-made trees are the ultimate travel friendly shoe trees because theyâ€™re hollow and super light.
A vintage white fur coat that my mother gave to me, and a certain sequin dress from One Vintage.
If you had a uniform, what would it be?
A pair of Isabel Marant wedge trainers,Â boxy tweeds and slouchy silk collarless shirts from Theyskenâ€™s Theory, and Hawaiian print pants from Stella.Â I find that adding a pop of color to any outfit peps me up ready for anything â€“ at the moment I’m finding that in neon separates.
The Bowery Hotel in NY makes a killer margarita.
Most stylish movie(s)?
Some of my favorites include Scorseseâ€™s Casino and Blow Up by Antonini. I’m also super excited about the forthcoming Gatsby film.
Guilty pleasure you never feel guilty about?
Fine jewelry and massages: Â an incredible pair of earrings or a statement ring can instantly uplift a look, and massages are necessary for my fast-paced life.
