Paddington Bear was my first introduction to the duffle coat. I think when I was little my brother had a duffle coat in camel too. The duffel coat is a classic but it can look so cool on the right man. Love this Joe Casely-Hayford Duffle Coat for John Lewis in Navy £299. The coatContinue reading


I’m loving Martina Spetlova’s SS13 collection, which I recently saw at Zip Zone during Paris Fashion Week. There has always been something special about her work. It’s always been intelligent but now it’s also so easy to wear. I love all the texture –  the pleats, weaves, the knit and sheer panels using a contrastingContinue reading

Bill Skinner has been designing over the decades for many famous brands including Asprey, Garrards and Van Cleef and Arpels, Butler and Wilson and Vivienne Westwood. In 2011 he decided to launch his own affordable jewellery collection. Love this ten galloping horse gold plated necklace (perfect for Ascot) and his bees and honeycombs designs –Continue reading

 It might just be a reaction to the very high and unusual heels we’ve been seeing on the catwalk and some 80’s influences but I’m loving trainers on the catwalk. When I’m doing a film shoot all the crew is wearing sneakers but on a fashion shoot there will always be one of the assistantsContinue reading

Love this colourful necklace from Hong Kong designer, Connie Lo. Her label is called Nutcase and all the pieces are fun and bright. Connie studied in the UK but is now based in Hong Kong where these pieces are handmade. You can buy her jewellery on Etsy and most pieces are under £60!

Knitwear really has had a resurgence over the past few yeasr – it’s not only taken more seriously it’s become more fashionable.Continue reading


Paris has come to London in the most delightful way. It’s an evening of burlesque: The Crazy Horse de Paris presents Forever Crazy. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual show – but I took all these images in the venue – which is a huge tent on the South Bank. It was anContinue reading


Love these mad shoes by Rinna Õun – they are crazy in a delightful sort of way and they’re perfect for Halloween. I found them at Wall & Jones (340 Hackney Road, London, E2 7AX) and was told that Õun studied in Estonia but is based in London and has been creating wearable art sinceContinue reading


In Paris you expect love and romance so just visit the bridge Pont des Arts – it’s a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Seine near the Louvre and is covered in “love locks”.


I love reading – it’s my only escape from fashion and I was particularly delighted to discover the Sunday Book Market on Goldsmith Row in East London. I love a good book – mainly chic lit. I’ve tried to read my iPad in bed but for some reason I tend to read on an angleContinue reading
