Jin Jin's layering is faultless; her combo of cape, khaki army jacket, pleats and suede thigh-highs is an imaginative mix of textures and shapes.

SHE IS Jin Jin Oh (30), visual merchandiser, from Korea, living in Dublin.

SHE WEARS Cape, €40; jacket, €20; skirt, €30; and boots, €30, all from Zara. Scarf, made by a friend. Purse by Marc Jacobs, present.
