We started the brand with one pair of trousers 20 years ago, with a focus on luxury fabrics. Her outlines are worn a lot by architects and people in the arts all over the world. My bag is Zilla. I had a khaki one by the same designer 10 years ago and I met so myriad people because of the bag — they told me they liked it and we started to talk.The art: I’ve come for two days to see contemporary art.

A friend of mine is casting for a period production so I’m looking at all the art periods with the ruffles, shepherd a see to all the old oil paintings. It’s quite useful for getting into character.

Art fairs create those trends.

The art: This is my first Frieze London, I always go to Frieze New York, I wanted to have an opportunity to see the international galleries and be introduced to the dealers who were not able to travel for the last two years.
