How would you de­scribe your per­sonal style?

My style is un­struc­tured. I en­deav­our to look pro­fes­sional but re­laxed at the same time. I have a cou­ple of tai­lored jack­ets, but in the main I pre­fer over­sized ev­ery­thing, ex­cept for trousers.

How does your style change in win­ter?

If any­thing my wardrobe is even more un­struc­tured dur­ing win­ter. Over­sized t-shirt dresses, lots of lay­er­ing and over­coats. I love con­trasts in tex­ture.

What about ac­ces­sories?

I like to wear scarves in win­ter, they break up the black­ness of my wardrobe, and I al­ways wear gloves – not only do they pro­tect my hands but they’re also just a lit­tle bit Au­drey Hep­burn.

What is your dream win­ter des­ti­na­tion?

Scot­land. It’s one of the most beau­ti­ful coun­tries I’ve had the plea­sure of vis­it­ing – scenery that can’t be cap­tured, great food, and Scot­tish peo­ple who have a quick sense of hu­mour they read­ily share.

What would you pack?

I never travel with­out a large pair of sun­glasses – cur­rently Prada – and I’d take a Trelise Cooper Cot­ton Eye Joe Dress to the Nines Dress, Tay­lor In­te­gral jeans, and a cou­ple of sim­ple crew neck merino jumpers. Go-any­where boots are vi­tal and I’d take a pair of Is­abel Marant an­kle boots.

What is your win­ter fra­grance?

I wear Chanel N°5 all year.
