We go behind the scenes on set with Lucy Williams

How would you describe your personal style?

Laidback, undone and always a little scruffy around the edges. For this shoot, I sized up in some of the knits to get that oversized, throw-on-and-go look and wanted to keep my hair and make-up typically low-key so that when I was styling the pieces like the tux and the silver dress, it still felt true to my natural look.  

Summer or winter dressing?

I love nothing more than bare feet, bikinis and denim shorts on holiday but when I'm in London I actually love winter dressing. Knits, shearling, leather and thick boots are all part of my polar vortex uniform. 

What trends are you most excited about this season?

I'm terrible at following trends in truth but I love velvet and lurex in winter so I'm pretty happy there's no end to those textures this season. Right now, I’m into layering different fabrics like patent leather with velvet and silk. It just feels really autumnal and means you can add interest to your look with simple pieces when it's too cold to show any skin. Anything black, shiny and patent gets a massive thumbs up from me this season. 

What three key pieces should no wardrobe be without?

A black leather biker jacket (a must for toughening up anything pretty or sexy), vintage Levi's jeans and black point-toe ankle boots. ​

What is your favourite piece from the Reiss AW16 collection and why?

It’s so hard to choose this season! The black shearling and leather jacket is amazing but I have a real soft spot for the silvery Candy dress. It's getting me excited for NYE already. ​

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Everywhere and anywhere but I think films and great editorials are up there for me. I'm a massive cinema lover and a great movie can really change how you want to get dressed or inspired you to dig out an old, forgotten favourite.
