Simone Rocha’s LBD

“A Haider Ackermann tweed jacket and a Simone Rocha lace dress. I consider these perennial classics in my wardrobe because they are wearable and transcend seasons. I like clothes that work hard and these will give a new dimension to my wardrobe – the black lace dress has a (more romantic) vibe compared to what I currently own, and I can never have enough jackets.”

Wardrobe staples

sarah rutson Haider Ackermann
Haider Ackermann’s tweed jacket is her new classics.

“I have every possible variation of a Le Smoking jacket – white with black lapels, black with satin lapels, navy blue and black – as it makes up the core of my wardrobe. I also love biker jackets for their edgy, subversive vibe, and own four different versions from Junya Watanabe – he does the best bikers – and Sacai. Both of these outerwear styles have been a part of my wardrobe since I was a teenager.”

Shopping haunts

sarah rutson J. Crew
J. Crew’s staples lend colour to her wardrobe.

“I shop so much on Net-a-porter because it’s got everything. And I go to J. Crew for great staples like button-down shirts, cropped pants and jackets to help inject prints and colour into my wardrobe, as my look is generally quite monochromatic.”

Favourite jeweller

Sarah rutson Jennifer Fisher
Jennifer Fisher’s simple, sculptural jewellery match her style.

“American accessories label Jennifer Fisher. The designer herself works in costume and fine jewellery, and she’s so in tune with modern culture. Her personal aesthetic (simple, feminine and meant for everyday) is quite similar to mine. Wearing jewellery now is about mixing up real and fake, something delicate with something hard and strong.”


An adapted version first appeared in Female’s November issue, out on newsstands now.
