Gentlewoman style: Handsome red

Spring pastels and summer neons may come and go but rich, handsome red never gets old. For starters, I love simple red sweaters, both for wearing and for tying round waists or shoulders.

Next, red leather accessories have a lovely nostalgic feel – Anya Hindmarch in particular has nailed it with her delicious two-way journal (which can be embossed with initials to personalise).

The iconic Gucci loafer in black with just a suggestion of a red stripe needs no explanation; I would wear these with vintage jeans (turned up of course), a white silk tee and the gold Chloe cuff.

And the bathroom shelf should be well dressed too, no? So to that I add Serge Lutens’ Le Fille de Berlin perfume and – new to Net-a-Porter – this lavender-infused body lotion from Hotel Costes
