One of the most versatile pieces in my vintage wardrobe is this red shrink- and wrinkle-resistant free horizontal striped sweater.
Made of Orlon – a synthetic material that DuPont patented as early as 1941 – it's my perfect travel companion, and works with trousers, shirts and under pinafore dresses.
The piece was part of a St Michaels collection from around the 1960's 1970's. It has a turtle neck which really does work as a neckline for me.
In honour of the unique Matias Mata's graffiti wall piece which adorns the walls at Studio54suites, I’ve worn the top with some 90's-inspired dungarees and a well-worn and much treasured leather belt that I picked up somewhere in a jumble sale.
I never really want to be too flat on the floor with this particular look so I’ve paired the outfit with my favourite Jamie Wei Huang navy platform shoes to give me a bit of extra height.
The plastic shopper was a present from a German designer Claudia Skoda and keeps all my shopping lightweight, whilst also adding a feminine touch.
