Thanks to the likes of Vetements, Rachel Comey, 3x1 and Citizens of Humanity (just to 
name a few), denim has become so much more than a mere wardrobe basic. With standout
features like contrast stitching, tonal panelling, exaggerated frayed hems, tailored silhouettes 
and unique washes, the humble jean is now taking centre stage both on the runways and in 
the streets, with just a few clean, pared-back additions necessary to make for a simple yet 
wholly dynamic look. Denim is no longer a mere sartorial afterthought but a true designer 
investment, so be sure to make the statement jean your next purchase and up the cool 
factor in your wardrobe stat.

There is no doubt that the turtleneck knit is an absolute winter staple. It's ability to give 
good coverage and essential cosiness whilst keeping your look clean and minimal is 
largely unsurpassed by most other cool weather gear, as is its ultimate range of versatility. 
Perfect layered up with dresses and coats or standing alone with a simple pant or midi 
skirt, a good knit makes a statement and yet is simultaneously effortless and relaxed. 
A piece after my own heart, to be sure.

I teamed up with Australian brand Witchery and styled one essential knit, three ways 
for their latest issue of THE REPORT. Hopefully I can inspire my fellow southern 
hemisphere-dwellers for their upcoming winter wardrobes and can help those more 
north of the equator to survive the rest of their winters in style.

It's a new year so it's back to work and back to the basics that keep your wardrobe (and you) 
running. Today, it's the bare minimum to get me from A to B and beyond - a sleek tailored 
blazer, cropped flare, luxe sneakers and clean clutch to ensure the highest level of comfort 
and mobility. Better yet, a simple black leather belt is all that's needed to make an additional 
top obsolete and keep the blazer front-and-centre; a real bonus for lovers of pure minimalism. 
From my last editorial shots left over from Paris, a truly memorable trip from 2015these 
also serve as a reminder of hopefully what awaits for the year to come: more travel, more 
amazing shoot locations, and yet more appreciation for those essential staples that keep you 
moving in this life. If any more appreciation is indeed possible.
