And speaking of his parents, Vladimir admitted that despite her position, his mother Carine Roitfeld doesn’t have a closet bursting with free clothes: “Actually, my mum has never had a lot of clothes, and she has a tiny wardrobe. She knows exactly what she likes to wear. There’s one long cupboard in her bedroom, and you never see shoes lying about anywhere else. I’ve got more clothes than she has.”

Once again, I wasn’t invited to the Oscars this year. Were you? Yeah, didn’t think so. So really, why dress up?
Effortless. One word that encapsulates all we want to achieve when it comes to dressing ourselves. So it stands to reason that actually putting effort into how we look is frowned upon. And the thing is – with the right kind of wardrobe, we can actually come pretty damn close to looking good, effortlessly. With the right pieces of garments inhabiting your wardrobe, dressing yourself becomes a simple act of reaching in, pulling out and putting on. And that simple act is what saves our lives at the end of the day because honestly, who has the time to put together wonderfully elaborate outfits on a daily basis or rather who wants to. Nobody. Certainly not when supposedly not caring about how you look but at the same time actually looking good is just so much more charming.
