"I've only recently discovered In the Mood for Love, Kar Wai Wong's film based in Hong Kong in the 1960s. I've always been obsessed with textiles and pattern, and you've never seen so many costume changes as with the heroine, Maggie Cheung, who wears a different cheongsam, each one a beautiful colour and print, in every shot. I'm really enjoying the season change right now—that early morning chill in the air and the leaves turning rusty. Rag & Bone had a fantastic collection at the New York shows—clever boys who certainly know the meaning of understated chic. My favourite piece for fall is a brown wool A-line double-breasted coat. It reminds me of the overcoats my mother used to dress me in as a child when we visited London. Finally, I'm totally addicted to the website www.usefulchickstuff.com. It's got everything a girl needs in an underwear crisis!"
