Better than a tunnel, fashion bridges the gap between Britain and the continent. Quirky, sassy and classy, British styling takes centre stage. The fabulous Victoria falls for the irresistible lure of London, selecting her favourite Maje pieces that are elegant and timeless.


How would you describe your style? My style has always been super eclectic. It changes depending on my mood, the trends or how the weather may be on a certain day. But I generally prefer to wear pieces that flatter my shape, have a somewhat feminine cut, accentuate and elongate my neck or that create a powerful silhouette. I adore tailoring and would be more than happy to wear a blazer, blouse and fitted trousers every day, but a mini dress with embellishment or a floaty, lace blouse are items I love to have hanging in my closet

What are your wardrobe essentials that every woman should own? My wardrobe wouldn't be complete without a fitted, buttoned blazer, a long camel coat, an amazing suede biker jacket, a perfectly fitted pair of skinny jeans, a lace blouse and a pair of black stilettos. Each item can be paired with absolutely anything!

What is your all-time favourite piece of clothing? In all the time I have been buying fashion, I would probably say that jackets are the piece of clothing I love to invest in. They complete an outfit and are the initial piece that someone will see. For me, my Burberry trench or Balmain Blazer are some of my favourite pieces I have ever invested in.

As a fashion expert, what makes Maje so different from any other French brand? My adoration for Maje comes from their high fashion styling with a more accessible feel. The cuts, fabrics and silhouettes are unique and luxurious whilst providing wearable pieces for the girl who loves their fashion. There has never been a time when I have walked into a Maje store and left without a new piece that I have fallen in love with. The overall styling of the Maje brand suits my laid back but fashion centric personality to a tee and I know that the fit and fabrics will always be what I love.

What’s your favourite products from Maje FW16 collection ? How would you wear it? There are so many to choose from! But I would say that like every other season, the jackets selection is on another level. I would have to say the Beril Leather BIKER, the Camel GRENAT Jacket or the cream MASTER long cardigan are huge favourites. I would style them all with an easy white tee or lacy white blouse tucked into high waisted fitted trousers with a pair of heels.

London : Do you have a place to recommend us? London is a huge place with so many gorgeous boroughs and areas to explore. I would recommend a walk through Hyde Park on a beautiful day, an avocado on toast at Granger and Co in Notting Hill or an Afternoon Tea at Claridges for something super special. Or, head to Sketch for the evening for delicious cocktails and a cool French menu. And a trip to London would not be the same without a few hours of shopping in Selfridges!
