Debbie Your favorite children’s brands Quincy, Simple Kids, Caramel, Zara Kids Favorite adult’s brandsDries Van Noten, Marni and a good pair of jeans Favorite children’s storesCaramel in London, Yoyamart in NYC, Zara kids in Portugal (they always have more choice), Couverture in Notting Hill What type of online consumer are you? I’m not a big fan of online shopping. I love the whole shopping experience – I like to ‘feel’, try on, before I buy. Books are pretty much the only thing I buy The most expensive item you bought for your Millie A pink sapphire from Sri Lanka (it will be made into a ring for her) and her christening gown (handmade in Portugal) The criteria you consider when you buy something for child When Millie was little I loved shopping for her clothes: but now she chooses everything and is quite specific about what she does and doesn’t like (even down to school shoes!) I love her creativity and imagination: yes she sometimes gets it wrong (in my mind of course), but I think its important to let her express herself. That said, there are always limits and I do try to suggest, but often its a 100% rejection! An item that is hard to find Good kids Swimwear – never lasts The outfit you really enjoy to see Millie in A white cotton dress from Bonpoint – timeless Where will you spend your summer holidays Possibly back to Fire Island to a house we rent on the beach, then Sitges and Figueras in Spain
