What's inside your handbag?
Handbags are an obsession and I am drawn to interesting and quirky styles over more utilitarian options. The perfect example are my Anya Hindmarch handbags. Each has its own personality and reflects my mood.
You will find me at Cottesloe Beach, Il Lido on Sunday afternoons for Jerry's oysters, and other times at Mummucc. They never get it wrong.
Your favourite piece of iconic furniture?
Great designer furniture is a true passion of mine, and investing in iconic pieces is the most sustainable way to enjoy the furniture you live with, as it will last a lifetime. I cannot go past the Utrecht chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1935 and produced today by Cassina. It's 87 years old and still relevant, continually specified and revered worldwide. It is a true icon.
Favourite furniture designer?
Historically, Charlotte Perriand was a true pioneer and the only woman who collaborated with all of the masters at the time – Prouvé, Le Corbusier and Jeanneret. Her works, produced today by Cassina, are over 90 years old. To be a woman in the 1930s creating such ground-breaking designs is fascinating.
Sarah Langley, Marketing Manager
Sarah wears La DoubleJ's Bella Dress in Liberace Ciclamino.
Favourite hotel and why?
I stayed at Soho House in Barcelona in late 2019 which was a memorable experience. So much thought has gone into every detail, from the way the rooms are appointed to where you sit down for your morning coffee. You feel as though you are part of a community. Locally, COMO The Treasury is an incredible experience of international standard.
Favourite piece of iconic furniture?
The Model 548 table lamp designed by Gino Sarfatti in 1951 was reissued in 2013 by Astep, a company founded by Sarfatti's grandson, Alessandro. This focus on honouring his family's traditions while continuing to look forward and innovate is an approach taken by many of the world's most enduring and iconic brands.
What pieces are you coveting for your wardrobe right now?
Ulla Johnson’s Arlenis dress in noir paired with Marni Fussbett sandals. She is known for her dresses, and I particularly like this silhouette. Also Altuzarra suiting because nothing is more classic than a tailored suit. It is something you will keep for a long time if you choose well.
The New York Times for their long-form articles which shed new light on world events or bring lesser-known stories to the fore. I am also partial to the mini crossword and spelling bee.
I have always loved Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris. It sweeps you up in the fantasy of travelling between two worlds, one of which being the extravagance of 1920s Paris when it was the centre of art, culture and music globally. More recently, I watched Parallel Mothers starring Penélope Cruz and Milena Smit, which I thought was a wonderful film, not least for the interiors.

Your daily uniform?
Day or night you'll find me in a black coat, trousers and funky sneaker combo. Throw a crazy bag into the mix, and we're on! I have an ongoing obsession for black and ‘Bottega green’ and I love Anine Bing’s biker tee and Matteau’s relaxed black suiting.
Favourite piece of iconic furniture -
The LC1 armchair by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. When I was studying interior architecture, Le Corbusier was the one architect I couldn’t fault. His design ethic has stayed with me from university. It's something about the classic lines, forms and materials – I am also a fan of brutalist architecture and modern design.
If you were a dish, what would you be?
Lending itself to my Italian heritage, it would have to be a Yellowfin tuna and citrus carpaccio (with the little capers on top, of course). This dish has a little mix of everything, similar to how you would describe me! Colourful with a little zing.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
A balmy 30-degree afternoon, blue skies and some soulful jazz playing in the background, surrounded by my closest friends with a glass of chilled pinot in hand. That's it right there. I have an amazing group of friends from all walks of life so spending time with them really fills my cup.
