I find it mesmerising that fashion trends always come full circle. If you study the image opposite of the photographer Lindsay McCrum shot by Slim Aarons 40 years ago, you realise it could be influencer Camille Charrière’s older sister pictured recently wearing bright colours, stacking bracelets, an oversize jacket she spotted at a flea market, and a pattern scarf to top off her eighties look. The confusion of time becomes more palpable in a period in which dressing up is more often appreciated by your own mirror than other people. Still, embarking on 2022 with health and hope, Mrs Rake is detouring via the French Alps for the winter. She embraces style and elegance at high altitude even when she stops for a vin chaud and maybe a fondue if enough calories have been burned during her morning runs. And she is happy to present our seasonal recommendations for the woman in your life.
