Lady Kinvara Balfour reveals her Fashion Week essentials
Marcus and David are old friends of mine, we were at university together. I am SO proud of all they have achieved. I live in their designs; this season, I am heavily into my new customised baseball jacket which goes with everything and is a wardrobe staple for life.
This magic, all-natural spray makes my hair grow (and grow and grow - much to the amusement of my hairdresser, the great Josh Wood, in London). I am ambassador for this USA brand so I am biased in saying that this stuff really works, and I use it a few times a week to keep my hair in good condition.
These are the perfect city boots for days when I am running around. They’re beyond comfortable and they have a heel that one can actually walk in. Every time I wear them, I get people stopping me in the street to ask where they are from.
I have tried so many skin foundations and nothing beats Chanel’s Vitalumiere. I find it hard use anything else on my skin. If only they could produce a mini-size for traveling: If Karl Lagerfeld is listening, please make travel sizes asap.
A good pair of jeans goes with everything, be it day or night. The best out there at the moment are by my friends Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson, co-founders of FRAME Denim. The guys have created a brilliant brand, and the jeans fit, and last, so well (hence I interviewed them for #AOLBuild this week; their creative/branding/marketing genius deserved to be shared with many). Le Skinny de Jeanne is my favourite style; I team them with Nike sneakers for day and heels for night.
Lady Kinvara Balfour is a creative director, producer and writer. She recently hosted a series of talks with three fashion greats for #AOLBuild during Fashion Week, including Zac Posen, Public School NYC and the founders of FRAME Denim/Industrie/Saturday Group. Now that she's done interviewing these fashion powerhouses, she's off to Lincoln Center to enjoy everything Fashion Week has to offer.
