One of my favourite designers that revels in every season is Lou Dalton. Her aesthetic electrifies a quirky take on the equestrian, with jodhpurs that have a military sort of patchwork, knits that look like tie dyed cobwebs, and a styling that stems back to young romantics; like if the 80’s adopted a touch of grunge. With this in mind, I couldn’t resist indulging in her palette, introducing a few leafs from her book into my own wear. My cardigan bobbles like a rural landscape on acid, with gritty leaves tattooed into the design. And my jumper from Topman LTD has equestrian shoulder pads that fit the Lou Dalton frame. With socks peeking out of brogues, and sunburnt burgundy trousers, my look conveys Spring with an 80’s romantic bohemian concoction.
I’ve also included a scan from the first issue of Conquer Magazine, for which I was heavily involved with as the fashion writer. The launch party was last night at Mayfair’s Babble Bar, and I was charmed to see the magazine come together into something slick and polished for the wealthy man about town.
