Having just returned from Paris and a visit to one of the most beautiful stores on earth ‘Merci’ I have rather gotten into the country esq vibe. The French do this very well and its a look that feels relaxed and lived in and is super easy to achieve. Now back in London with its hard edged vibe and tomorrow off to NY with its even harder edge vibe I am now coveting glamour. Its a perpetual conundrum – rustic v glamour and which look to go for. So I am doing a little bit of both – in Paris brought vases for the new collection in the softest of hues – perfect for spring and summer along with some beautiful roughly hewn stools crafted from old oak. I am offsetting this with some rock chic cushions in vibrant pink with some chain detailing and some fabulous metal stools which Gem and I will be fighting over to take home. A journalist recently asked me to describe my style and I started off with quirky, eclectic and glam but also country esp with a touch of baroque thrown in – sounded like a right old nut case!
