I LOVE clothes. Always have. The feel of cashmere, the smell of fresh linen and just the sight of stripes all makes me giddy. When I got rid of about 80% of my wardrobe (give or take a few black bin bags) and put my first capsule wardrobe together, falling out of love with clothes had nothing to do with it. • I wanted to create a smaller, more curated collection of quality clothes that not only fit me (because hardly anything I owned at the time was a decent fit), but also made me feel good and most importantly would stand the test of time. No more ‘hauls’, no more shopping for shopping’s sake and driving myself round the bend and no more poor quality that quickly ended up shoved at the bottom of one of many spare suitcases. Relate? • It looks different now to how it did back then (and this isn’t all of it) but the effect is still the same - simple. All hail simplicity right? I read last week that simplicity is often something we don’t even know we need, I know I didn’t - but every morning when it comes to getting dressed I’m grateful for it.
