What are the LC:M essentials that you can’t live without?
I'm slightly fragrance obsessed, so my Bleu de Chanel travel spray - a slim container that fits easily into a jacket pocket - is a constant companion during LC:M and I’d recommend it for any man on the go. I also tend to take lots of photos with my phone so on a busy day my battery will be on its last legs by mid-morning, therefore a charger is an absolute must. I also like to have my moleskin notepad and pen to hand, a pair of sunnies, a brolley (well it is London!) and a protein bar to keep me going. A pet hate is bulging pockets and ruining the line of a well-tailored piece so I tend to carry a bag or satchel of some description…I recently got my hands on a satchel-backpack hybrid from the Cambridge Satchel company which I'm really enjoying.
Which show are you most looking forward to seeing?
That’s a tough one – there’s always a great buzz at YMC and E. Tautz while Topman put on a spectacular show. Burberry is Burberry, so it's not to be missed and last season l attended the Tom Ford event which eschews the typical catwalk show in favour of an old-school style presentation with the man himself talking through each look. One of the things I love about LC:M is seeing new talent and there’s no better time for spotting London's brightest emerging creatives.
Between shows, where is your favourite place to take a break?
To be honest, I'm quite easy-going and happy to chill out anywhere with a good coffee brew and wifi. Otherwise, if I'm not on the hunt for the nearest sushi joint to refuel, I tend to gravitate towards the hub of it all at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden or Soho House.
