The Fashion Memo

Shop masculine-feminine with a fashion editor

The PORTER fashion team each have their own personal style. Some love bold and bright colors, others prefer to keep their palette on the dark side; some indulge in extreme prints, others like a pretty floral instead. Week by week, get to know the PORTER fashion editors’ tastes and tips, as they each reveal what is on their NET-A-PORTER wishlist this season, and how they will be wearing their picks. Today, Associate Fashion Features Editor GILLIAN BRETT divulges her most-wanted of the season and why they made the cut…



My personal style in three words… Masculine meets feminine.

My style muse is… Phoebe Philo, Daria Werbowy and Isabel Marant girls like Anna Ewers.

The item I can’t live without is… Leather pants.

My favorite piece in my closet is… A black Helmut Lang dress that gets very few wears, which makes it extra special.

My favorite style tip is… The key to wearing one color head to toe is texture, like mixing black PVC pants with a black silk-bend T-shirt or a cashmere jumper.

If I could only wear one designer it would be… Nicolas Ghesquière – wherever he goes, I will follow.

You will never catch me wearing… Low-rise, Noughties-style jeans (ever again).

My wish list

“I’m really fussy about fabrics and silhouettes; I like soft textures, I love leather, and I go for simple but flattering shapes. Since I was a child, I’ve been obsessed with black (it worried my mother…) and sporty styles. I’ve grown out of my tracksuits and am slightly less of a tomboy, but I still stick to a uniform of minimalist shapes in black, white, denim, tan and khaki. When I dress up, I love romantic dark reds and gravitate towards silk slip dresses.”

I love how these Saint Laurent ankle boots toughen up the ruffled Isabel Marant skirt. They’re the type of classic style that you could wear for years with skirts, dresses or jeans.

I’m obsessed with New York brand Khaite – designer Catherine Holstein makes great pieces in super-luxe fabrics. Loewe is my go-to for day bags.

If I wear a skirt, I’ll balance it out with a classic, boyish-cut T-shirt worn with simple slides instead of high heels.
My beauty routine is pretty low-key. I love Hungarian brand Omorovicza for skincare and David Mallett is amazing for haircare. I always light candles in the bathroom when I’m getting ready; Byredo make the sexiest scents.
