We sat down with the creative team behind our luxe line Graham & Spencer this week to whittle out of them what got them going while they were designing the beautiful Fall collection. As you can see it’s a mad world in there!

Music: Patti Smith’s Horses was the most over-played album in the design room. Top tune: GLORIA.

Effortless Olsen twin layering, especially chunky knits!
Nonchalant fur wearers: Cybil Shepherd, Kate Moss, repeat-offenders the Olsen twins.
