Maybe it’s some sort of sixth-sense sis­ter thing, but sub­con­sciously we seem to find our­selves al­ways dress­ing in a sim­i­lar way. We dress in a pretty gen­der-neu­tral, min­i­mal way that we hope looks chic and ef­fort­less. We love Ja­panese and menswear de­sign. We love Mar­garet How­ell for her de­sign and her ethos.we got to go to her show last sea­son, and ev­ery­thing — men’s and women’s — was per­fect. We fan­ta­sise about wear­ing ev­ery­thing by Acne, Cé­line or The Row [10], but the re­al­ity is most of our day-to-day wardrobes are from Uniqlo and Muji.we both have gold signet rings by LA de­signer J.han­nah, each with our ini­tials, and nei­ther of us has taken them off since we got them.we are both also very fond of the Swedish jew­ellery brand All Blues for our gold hoop ear­rings.we saw some beau­ti­ful knot­ted hoop ear­rings in Cé­line the other day.the only time we change up our jew­ellery is when we feel like wear­ing dif­fer­ent gold hoops or a dif­fer­ent chain neck­lace [3]. Nei­ther of us owns a clas­sic Chanel bag [7], which we have al­ways thought about pur­chas­ing and still haven’t.we tend to be can­vas sneaker type girls. Cé­line do some re­ally nice ones [9].We have re­cently been lucky enough to go to a few Her­mès events, and after see­ing what they cre­ate in terms of fashion and home­wares, we want any­thing and ev­ery­thing they de­sign! Our go-to out­fits would have to be navy blue tai­lored trousers with a sim­ple white T-shirt [2] tucked in, a black leather belt [11] and ei­ther loafers [5] or can­vas train­ers.we are big fans of Burberry trench coats [13] for when it’s rain­ing, as it of­ten is in London, or a ca­sual, slightly over­sized blazer [4].When it comes to flat­ter­ing pants, we love a ci­garette or suit-style trouser [6] in ei­ther a navy, black or faint plaid, or sim­ple, loose-fit­ting denim.we don’t tend to wear many prints on clothes, but Her­mès do the most beau­ti­ful printed scarfs that we love to tie our hair up with [1].We try to keep our skin as clear and our makeup (if we wear any) as nat­u­ral as pos­si­ble. Our all­time favourite beauty prod­uct has to be Chanel’s Can­deur et Ex­pe­ri­ence Les 4 Om­bres pal­ette [12].We use it on eyes, cheeks and lips ev­ery day. We like to change our fra­grances depend­ing on mood and oc­ca­sion. But a favourite is the uni­sex scent Tuxedo by Yves Saint Lau­rent [8]. It’s so deep and smoky. 9
