1PM Dur­ing lunchtime, I will usu­ally eat a salad from the lo­cal deli, and might talk to the im­age team about our new cam­paign for the up­com­ing sea­son. Some­times, if I have some spare time, I might sketch a new idea for a show, or work on a shoe de­sign or new pack­ag­ing. When I have a meet­ing with a stylist or a fash­ion edi­tor, I al­ways head to The Ivy or Clarke’s; some­where around our lo­cal neigh­bour­hood restau­rants in Kensin­gon as it takes too much time to cross Lon­don, but I mainly pre­fer to work than eat in the mid­dle of the day. 3PM I might call our fac­tory in Som­er­set to see how we are pro­gress­ing with new lines go­ing into pro­duc­tion. We have 600 crafts­men on two sites in the English coun­try­side and we make most of our key bags in Eng­land. 4PM I might meet with our dig­i­tal and so­cial me­dia team to plan sto­ries and creative ideas for the next sea­son. I like work­ing on the com­mu­ni­ca­tion of new prod­ucts. 5.20PM I have tea (this is Bri­tain, after all!) with some­one in­ter­est­ing that I want to build a project with. It might be an artist from the In­sti­tute of Con­tem­po­rary Arts or a muse like Si­enna Miller or Edie Camp­bell. 8.30PM Of­ten, I go to an event in the evening, prob­a­bly some­thing that is part of the Lon­don cul­tural or fash­ion cal­en­dar, like the Ser­pen­tine Gallery’s party or a smaller din­ner party. 10.45PM I am a Span­ish night owl who likes to stay out late. So, when I start to party—danc­ing and talk­ing—I can’t stop! But these days it is im­por­tant to keep the pace and the work lev­els up so I try to get to sleep by mid­night. 12AM Late night e-mails take up a cou­ple of hours if I am not out but what I re­ally like is to look at books. I love the work of Car­men Her­rera, a 101-year-old Cuban-Amer­i­can painter that I am fas­ci­nated by. I hope I am still go­ing at 100. De­sign­ing is my pas­sion and any­thing that gets in the way of my de­signs an­noys me—un­less it’s my fam­ily or friends.
