DESCRIBE THE MOOD OF ‘DROGHEDA’ IN THREE WORDS

Sensual. Romantic. Modern.

DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY IN PARIS

Waking late, brunch at St Régis with a book, a stroll through Jardin des Tuileries, a spot of shopping on Rue Saint Honoré, late lunch at Hotel Côstes, visit to Brancusi and Palais Galliera, evening spent with family in the Septième.

THE CITY THAT SPARKS YOUR IMAGINATION THE MOST

I adore Paris. It has infinite beauty, a wealth of history, and so much soul. However, city life, no matter how beautiful the city, is harsh. To move between city and country is necessary for one to have ultimate appreciation.

 

BEST TRAVEL HACK

Be organised and travel light. The feeling that comes with travelling easily is priceless

The Isotoma Dress

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM NEXT SEASON

Our next collection, entitled “Silhouette of an Artist” takes inspiration from American artist Georgia O’Keefe. It’s a nod to her strength as a woman, her talent as an artist, and her courage as a human to live ‘a different life”.

 

WHAT YOU’LL BE WEARING THIS WINTER

Layers. The Henbury Leather Top worn over a long black tee with Kravitz leather Pants and Saint Laurent black stiletto ankle boots has been my go-to ensemble for NYC and Paris sales.

WHAT YOU NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT

Phone. Wireless headphones. Sunglasses. Santa Maria Novella Calendula Cream. Lip balm. Balancing mist. An assortment of crystals – I choose different ones each day dependent on the energy I’m drawn to / in need of.

 

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED
