5 Minutes With Grazia’s Charlie Miller

When Grazia’s executive fashion and beauty director Charlie Miller came to town last week, WhatSheWears was there to meet her.

Trawling the fashion for weeks on end each year, Charlie is one of the first fashion insiders to see the catwalk trends – so we couldn’t wait to ask her what she has her eye on for her own autumn winter 2011 wardrobe.

This video (2 mins 17 secs, click on image above) is very noisy (there was lots going on when we met Charlie in Brown Thomas at the Raoul launch last week!) so apologies if you can’t hear it very well….for this reason, we’ve transcribed the interview below for your reading pleasure.

WSW: Charlie, what are your buys for this autumn winter; tell us, what’s gonna be “in” your wardrobe?

CM: Do you know what, I’m breaking it down into key pieces. There’s a massive mannish trend, which I’m certainly buying into, as I love all of that “borrowed from the boys” kind of thing, so I’m going to be buying a lot of tailoring,  slouchy mens blazers and mens style brogues.

When it comes to clothes, I’m going to buy a posh parka; a really smart parka, which I can wear with smart gear and then grunge it up out and about.

I definitely want a collarless coat, it’s very chic and a pair of amazing cropped tailored trousers.

Accessories-wise, I have the (points to the Raoul) Janice bag. There’s a huge trend for that envelope shaped minimal clutch bag.

Shoe-wise I’m going to get myself a pair of ankle strapped, slightly sexy S&M style shoes – a black patent pair with no platform.

What else am I gonna buy? A really pretty dress, with a clashing print, probably from Jonathan Saunders. Id love to dip my toe into the Mary Katrantzou collection as it’s exquisite…and I guess that’s it!

WSW: What are you wearing today?

CM: Today I’m wearing a cornflower blue blouse from Raoul’s spring summer collection paired with a pair of tobacco coloured DVF trousers. I snagged myself these Celine sandals in the Selfridges sale at a bargain price and some leather wind-around bracelets from Tods.
