Last November I had the best evening at Me+Em’s Belgravia pop up, hosting a soiree to promote my book. I never feel that comfortable doing customer-facing events. I haven’t done many and I always feel a bit of a nana, but Me+Em have such lovely customers and it ended up being quite a hoot.

No wonder then that the sensible stalwart, the trench coat, is more popular than ever, on and off the catwalk.
