J . J . M A RTIN
The Milan-based writer and editor on her brand of fun, feminine dressing. Favourite designers Prada, Valentino, and Stella McCartney, as well as 1970s Oscar de la Renta. Bulk buys J.Crew cashmere crewneck sweaters – I have them in every colour. Worn and regretted Pretty much everything I wore before the age of 30. Most daring thing you’ve ever worn? I frequently wear transparent dresses with no lining, but now that it’s a trend I don’t feel so radical about it – the granny-pants undergarments help. Trends you never tire of? Give me a graphic floral print, an intricate lace, or super-crunchy embroidery any day. Will never wear Tight, low-waisted jeans; actually, jeans in general, unless they look like culottes. Eternal style icon I’m nuts about [the Italian art collector and socialite] Marella Agnelli and her neck. Dream wardrobe swap Iris Apfel. Heels or flats? Flats, flats and more flats.
