What is your ...

* Favourite shop? Mr Porter online is fantastic.

* Best bargain buy?

Seven handwoven handkerchiefs for €50 from Hackett. They're really bright, some with a paisley print, and are great for spicing up any look.

* Biggest splurge?

A pair of brown, leather, knee-high boots by Gant for £175 in London. I'd never be caught wearing them back home but they're really great boots.

* Best and worst-dressed style icons?

The worst is Mel Gibson and the best are Tinie Tempah and my grandad!
