My Favourite Things: Lady Victoria Hervey
We moved to Monaco when I was two years old, so for the past two years, as I’ve developed my brand, a big influence has been the south of France, where I spent most of my childhood. I’m beach mad and love spending time in warm weather and exotic tropical destinations, like Barbados in the Caribbean.
I travel a lot, collecting ideas from all the cities I visit. I’m fascinated by Roman history, so religious vestments like papal robes and big churches like the Duomo in Florence inspire me with their colours and patterns.

Not a lot of people know about Sant Ambroeus in New York’s Soho, with its vibrant atmosphere and modern take on traditional Milanese cuisine. A hidden gem.

I grew up on them. They just don’t make them like that any more.
Being based in California for the past decade with quality beach time in Malibu gave me the idea of bringing out my swim line first before other clothing and accessories. I’ve created two themes for the Ladyship swimwear collection, one being more classical lines and solid, bold colours with a gold leopard logo, and then a more sparkly vibe for those customers wanting brighter hues.
