Three chic women give Naomi Larkin the inside track on the influences shaping their daily fashion and beauty choices.
– three chic women reveal their fashion and beauty influences
What does your job entail?
My main focus is on sourcing high-quality contemporary furniture and getting the word out to clients who are looking for that special item for their home.
Describe a typical day for you.
I’m not known for my early morning starts but once I get going there is an awful lot to do in a day and I’m often working until 8pm. Apart from talking with clients and arranging logistics, there are visits to our consignors and suppliers.
Describe your personal style.
I’m a bit of a tomboy – some might say ageing rock chick but I gave up the leather trousers a long time ago! I have my staples but I do select fresh influences from seasonal trends.
Do you have a work ‘uniform’?
Yes, denim above all (unless it’s black trousers) and boots.
Who are your style icons?
Armani for his feminine take on suiting, Galliano and Mcqueen for their deconstruction and recrafting, Angela Wickstead for her amazing understanding of fabric and fit, and Emilia Wickstead for her contemporary slant on classic elegance.
Do you follow any fashion rules?
Unfortunately, and to my daughters’ horror, no – I even do double denim. I like occasions when I can be a little creative in that sense.
How do accessories feature in your style?
I love a statement belt, rings, bracelets and earrings and I use scarves a lot in winter.
What’s your fashion obsession?
Sunglasses and shoes – they both allow you to be in character somehow. One provides a mystique and the other a certain swag. Together they can make you feel more confident; you can be who you want to be in that moment.
