Wardrobe Classics for 2013

In our quest of the perfect wardrobe staples, we have looked long and hard into the established style codes. Not a single year goes by without Vogue dedicating an entire issue to the great wardrobe classics every woman should own, from the little black dress that we are told we have to own (I have yet to find that dress which will never go out of fashion) to the androgynous look worn by generations spanning 60 years, with the following commandment of trench coat, white shirt and jeans.

Our recipe at SUF for looking timeless is to keep it fresh and interesting by revisiting the perfectly-cut crisp white shirt and opting for a less stuck-up version in fluid silk and a dose of colour-blocking. We have a have a great weakness for shirt brand Equipment , founded and previously owned by Mr. Restoin , Carine Roitfeld’s husband , over 20 years ago, and still a favourite of Harper’s Bazaar global fashion editor.

Add to that an oversized envelope clutch bag , big enough to carry your ipad ( adios the small shoulder bag that could barely fit your cell phone, the large envelope bag is so 2013), and a rolled-up pair of low-cut jeans by J Brand or Maison Scotch.

As for shoes, platforms are getting a great slap on the sole this year, with single soled classic midi pumps taking over. Chic French girls long understood that they can’t go about their business running around in chunky platforms and have always favoured the mid-heel pointed toe court shoe. Choose a light colour for spring in nude, rosey beige or white to elongate the calf. We are loving Saint Laurent, Louboutin , Sergio Rossi and Gianvito Rossi this spring.

  • One last stroll in Dubai's Citywalk this weekend, admiring the modern architecture... after 6 years in Dubai I am going to terribly miss the spirit of this city... where literally everything is possible and where you can only dream big. If only most people and countries had that same ambition, the world would be a much happier place
