    Filmmaker, artist, illustrator, animator, model – is there anything Quentin Jones can’t do? It appears she can also add carpenter to her résumé, because when I arrive at the multi-hyphenate’s brand-new north London apartment, she’s wielding an electric drill, putting up shelves to house her extensive collection of shoes and dresses. “I know what I want, so I thought I’d do it myself,” Jones shrugs, swapping her tools for a teacup before curling up on the sofa, nonchalant in a cricket sweater, ripped jeans and bare feet.

    STYLE RÉSUMÉ

    PROFESSION: Multimedia artist

    MY STYLE: Tomboyish by day, a dress and heels by night

    GO-TO LABELS: Tibi for dresses, Smythson for great clutches and Acne Studios – it’s cool and not too feminine

    FAIL-SAFE PIECES: I love a good oversized coat and a woolen hat. I wear Equipment shirts a lot, as they’re transitional

    FAVORITE ACCESSORY: I have at least ten pairs of black leather boots – I repeat buy. My clompy Jil Sander ones are favorites
