P-A HÜE DE FONTENAY Photographer P-A shoots Tess Ward (page 124) What would be your death-row meal? I’ll never be on death row – maybe front row, someday. What’s the best chat-up line you’ve ever heard? ‘It’s Britney, bitch.’ What’s the phrase or word you most overuse? ‘I don’t understand the question, and I won’t respond to it.’ ISABELLA MASSENET Isabella tells us what the cool kids are wearing at Frieze (page 115) What’s the best chat-up line you’ve ever heard? I’m 17 – the boys I’ve encountered haven’t really gotten further than ‘My friend likes you.’ Which super-powers would you most like to have? To be able to speak every language and to have the ability to jump very high. What’s your go-to fancy-dress costume?

a directory of saints for posh people

Exactly 500 years ago in October, Martin Luther – so legend has it – pinned his 95 Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg and made going to church about 1,000 per cent less exciting for the rest of us. Among his many reforms was one in particular: no more intercession of the saints. But here’s the thing: Sloanes need saints. Their problems are of a very specific nature. And saints have very specific patronages. So it’s only logical to turn to them when you’ve got yourself in a pickle. Here’s a handy guide to who to ask to intercede on your behalf in your time of need... ST JOSEPH OF CUPERTINO Patronage Aviation, astronauts. Pray to when You’ve booked a ticket on a Virgin Galactic flight and are…

here’s looking at... de la vali

Imagine arriving at a party and finding 12 girls wearing the very same flamencoesque dress: a recipe for mass social suicide, right? Unless you’re the designers of the gown – in which case, you’d be very happy. This is what happened to De La Vali designers Laura Castro, above left, 25, and Jana Sascha Haveman, 24, at online-poker king Russ DeLeon’s 50th-birthday blowout at the Blue Bay estate in Ibiza in 2015. It was, says Jana, the start of ‘a whirlwind of popularity’. The lifelong pals had launched their label earlier that year, getting their designs made up while on holiday in Goa ‘in about 20 styles and in small quantities’. But on seeing a dozen beauties at the Blue Bay bonanza dancing in their frocks – which, back then,…

shearling coats

You’re going to have to trust us on this: the shearling jacket is the only coat you need to get you from September to May. Honestly. Take a minute while your eye adjusts and then resume. OK? Coping? Shall we continue? Yes, it’s a departure. Agreed, it feels a bit rad; a bit Arthur Daley. A bit ‘hot nanny’. But these no-longer-than-hip-length jackets are so intensely covetable that you will be able to wear them over anything at all and look entirely plugged in and lit up with style sensibility. Right now they may seem a little bit ‘other’. But as winter closes in, you will want one. Trust us.…

So this is not orange. How very dare you. Honestly. I mean. This is orange’s sophisticated sister; tangerine’s elegant cousin. This, my friends, is ochre – this autumn’s earthy, tonal answer to clementine. Put it this way: last season’s yellow and tan got a bit tipsy. There may have been candlelight and dancing. And beautiful, bouncing ochre was born, dominating our transitional wardrobe palette. Take ochre as far as you feel comfortable, from a boot or a bag to the full-on investment involved in a coat. Fur, if you dare. Witty. It’s always a relief when the fashion mood can be encapsulated in a colour rather than a strange shape or tricky silhouette. Makes everything less stressful.…
