Michelle Obama and Kamala Harris choose to wear same black designer for inauguration

Inauguration day is typically one in which the power players in American politics take to the stage in elegant formalwear from some of America’s most established luxury fashion designers. For a member of the US political elite to wear an emerging label is unusual. For a lesser-known brand to be worn by not one but two of the ceremony’s heavy hitters is pretty much unheard of.

What it’s like to be an agoraphobic travel writer during lockdown

Last July I stopped leaving the house. While friends and family kept their spirits high during lockdown with bike rides and long walks, I couldn’t step outside without having a panic attack.

Everyone’s world shrunk last year, but the shock and anxiety of lockdown caused me to develop a panic disorder, which led...

’70s Homeware Was Loud, Eclectic & Optimistic. No Wonder It’s Back

If you’ve never seen it before, you should look up pictures of the ‘Big Biba‘ shop. The seven-storey department store opened in Kensington in 1973 following the explosion in popularity of Barbara Hulanicki’s fashion brand. While Biba is often associated with the 1960s (the first store opened in ’64), the interior of Big Biba was, in many ways, quintessentially ’70s. There were loud prints on the home floor, curved edges and soft geometric shapes...

Lockdown 3 has shifted the productivity goalposts – and I'm taking a nap

I wake at various times: 4am to heart palpitations, then again at 6am to record my violent and beautiful dreams in the notes app of my phone. Finally, I rise at 8am to walk the dog, empty the kittens’ litter trays and put their food on the floor. With no appointments to keep, I could go back to bed for a few hours, but the cold light and gentle activity inevitably make me feel as if the day has begun in earnest, and so I reluctantly join it. I...
