Why I LOVE Timeless Style
These, alongside my best friend’s mom, Missy Bancroft, were my first style influences. Missy was Bill Blass’s muse. She was exceptionally beautiful and elegant in a very old-world way. Bill Blass is considered one of the great designers of my time and his approach to fashion was always inspirational.
Growing up in New York through the ‘60s to ‘80s, there were quite a few people like Blass and Halston who impacted my love for timeless style. And, ultimately working for both Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang made a big impression too.
Aside from these well-known designers, my travels to Europe in the 1970s and Asia in the ‘90s opened my eyes to a global appreciation for timeless style. Early Gucci is still one of my favorites to this day, and I couldn’t live without classic Gucci loafers.

Timeless style pieces I couldn’t live without
A crisp white shirt, alongside tailored trousers or jeans, complemented by a statement necklace, is my tried-and-true outfit. It represents timeless style, to me, perfectly. Effortless, sophisticated and classic. I often like to add a statement necklace, to really finish off the look. It’s about being bold, but not extravagant!
As you’ve probably already guessed, when it comes to shoes, loafers are a must. They go with any daytime outfit and are both classy and comfortable. Of course, I don’t live in loafers 24/7 – I will wear appropriate footwear say if I am dressing up for an evening or attending an event.
Pearl earrings are also my go-to. These beautiful accessories will never date, they work with my hair, skin tone and bring elegance to every outfit. I love both studs and drops, plain and baroque, and own a pair of each in grey.

How I shop timeless style...
Berlin has an amazing equestrian store, Gambrinus Reitsport. When we are visiting, I have to make a stop and see what incredible things are on offer.
That’s the thing with me, whenever I see something irresistible that I cannot get at home, or on the internet, it simply has to be mine! I’ll admit, I don’t buy all that much, but I’ll always be looking for a new perfect piece to fill my wardrobe.
