A quick check in from London where the weather is perfectly cold enough for layers and warm enough for bare legs! Granted, it rains every few hours but only for a couple of minutes so thankfully I haven’t been forced to carry an umbrella out, yet. Today I’m exploring Mayfair and Oxford Street dressed in Self-Portrait from FWRD (from now till 26th Sept, receive an extra 15% off sale and free express shipping by signing up here) that is so fun to prance around in. Mostly because the sleeves have buttons and you can wear the dress almost off-shoulder or covered right up, depending on the look you’re achieving. I always try to be comfortably dressy in London because every corner is almost ‘grammable, right?

Hyde Park is truly most beautiful at nine in the morning, and can you believe I woke up two hours before to get my hair and makeup done? I had wanted to squeeze a quick shoot session before all the tourists and locals arrived, and even though I was freezing in the 2°C morning frost, it was so nice to wander around the quiet park with my dear photographer. We greeted a few swans and squirrels, skipped around for a bit and then stopped for a hot chocolate after the cold started to wear us out.

I’m wearing this stunning Milly faux fur jacket from Shopbop, and that brings me to a special mention about Shopbop’s Big Sale!

In collaboration with AIGNER
Remember when you were younger and your favourite colours weren’t just red, pink or blue, but a sweeping spectrum of the rainbow? It’s incredible how as kids we dream of a vivid universe, loaded with multicoloured skies, dynamic oceans and the most flamboyant of animals. Nothing was impossible in our imaginations. Well, for me anyway. As an adolescent, I would sit by the window daily and sketch with brightly coloured markers, first my ideal kind of world, the type of people who lived in it and finally the sort of outfits they would don.
In these illustrations, my human figures would be clothed in the grandest of garbs, think tweed, silk and fur, and they would tote around the most striking of bags, detailed with exotic skin or embroidered with crystals and sequins. I can even swear one of them resembled that of this Cybill Mini Bag. It should come as no surprise then that I drew a great deal of inspiration from my mother, and of course she also shared the same adoration for purses. I can always recall her first Aigner: tanned and leather, and in the style of a trendy crossbody. For safe-keeping, the vintage piece is now stored in the lowest drawer of my dressing table, lying snugly in a dust bag until a fitting occasion comes up again.


This time, however, I present to you the iconic Aigner Cybill Mini Bag finished with python leather that gives the piece a luxurious touch of elegance. The classic design completes any outfit, and its perfect shape and size complements the brilliant functionality and personality of the purse. It is the go-to for a best friend bag – one that stores your life and travels with you; one that you pass down to your children. Since their relaunch, the brand has introduced other handbags that previously made Aigner a go-to for designers like Hermès and Christian Dior, under whom he once apprenticed.
Ultimately, the brand’s core is a symbiosis of tradition and innovation, combining classical and modern styling. A style that transcends both time and geographical borders. Shop the featured Cybill Mini Bag online here, or at a shared multibrand location in Singapore:
