Will never be seen in
Cowl anything!

In your handbag right now
Phone charger, mascara, Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge, old receipts, perfume and emergency nail paint.

Secret to style
Effortlessness coupled with comfort, a killer pair of shoes and well-manicured hands!

Newly discovered labels
Haven’t seen anything intriguing of late.

Current lust list
Rolex Lady-Datejust watch.

Dress code at work
It’s all about the effort you put into the tiniest of things. I have always been the tuck-your-shirt-in, put-a-belt-on type of person, even if it’s a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans and a plain tee. Also, a nice watch goes a long way!

First brush with fashion
When my father would bring back French and Italian fashion magazines for my mum from his trips abroad.

Wardrobe treasures
Sneakers, a custom-made leather jacket, a vintage LV bucket bag.

Picks from autumn/winter 2016
Loving the extra-long sleeves and the ’70s platform or Bowie boots, and I have a new-found liking for velvet.

Shopping philosophy
Consume only as much as you need. If you need it all, so be it!

Wardrobe peek
Stolen T-shirts, courtesy friends and family. A ton of denims and lots of oversized everything. And fun socks!

Next, Piya Shivdasani.
