Mistakes, we all make them, you, what’s your most fashion mistakes?
Dresses..they are feminine and sexy …day dresses, evening dresses…long, short, casual, elegant, boho….the reality is that I end up wearing shirts, jackets and trousers much more….leaving my beautiful dresses behind in my wardrobe…

What's your relationship with your wardrobe?
I kind of have a daily uniform..which has been for years: jeans, trainers, shirt and sweater in winter…Hence my wardrobe gets much more exciting in the evening..when I go out. I don’t dress up during the day. Mostly it is jeans and shirts or jumpers in winter. I can wear what I want at the office and luckily my work environment is very informal. I like to be comfortable but always chic… so often it is about accessories..a nice coat, a hat, boots, scarf.just a little detail…Going out is different and this is when I love my wardrobe the most.I like spending time and experiment new outfits. It is a place that I keep very tidy and organised and where every piece is cherished. I tend to keep only what I wear..hence it is very curated and quite minimal at the end. I don’t like accumulating things and can part quite happily with what I do not like any longer or do not wear anymore.

Make us dream…what’s your ultimate desired piece?
Probably a Cristian Dior day navy coat or a toile de jouy one from the Collection Croisiere and a beret voilette in black or a casquette gavroche. I love Maria Grazie Chiuri masculine/feminine aesthetic. The French quintessential chic. No logos though as I am not a big fan or the logo mania…Just plain navy blu.

Best excuse for your bank adviser/partner to justify what you have just bought?
I really needed it. I did not have one..Will wear it constantly in winter and in summer!

Your shopping regret, the one you can’t stop thinking about?
I can’t really think of a shopping regret..but I can think of a recent buy which gave me a lot of pleasure..three beautiful African skirts from Vivia Ferragamo. Part of a charity project ‘skirts for love’ set up by Vivia. The skirts are the most gorgeous things ever and procedure from the sales go to charity.
