ANTONIA O’Brien opens up on her life in clothes
What’s the last piece of clothing you bought?
A metallic trophy jacket from Mulberry. It was a steal in one of their famous sample sales.
What are you addicted to buying?
I’m addicted to statement shoes and boots – anything that’s glittery or bowed and patent. My current go-to for amazing shoes is Camilla Elphick – her shoes are dreamy.
Best ever bargain?
A gilt-buttoned Celine blazer that I found hidden in a charity shop off High Street Kensington. It was only £35.
Who has great style?
Vogue Paris editor Emmanuelle Alt has such a cool androgynous style; no-one looks better in jeans, fierce boots and a blazer.
Name your favourite high street shop.
Can I have two? It would have to be Zara for catwalk-inspired pieces with a bit of Topshop for footwear and accessories.
Any fashion disasters you’d care to tell us about?
When I underestimated how sheer my maxi-dress was and wore some pretty dreadful underwear underneath; the shame.
What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe?
A pair of vintage mechanic overalls. I think they’re very Isabel Marant but they’re probably more Top Gun.
