STYLE FILES

Patricia Manfield knows what you want to wear

By Jemma Tibbals, 1 March 2017

She may have officially hung her blogging hat up to pursue singing and songwriting (watch this space for her first EP, set to drop in a couple of months), but for Italian-born, London-based Patricia Manfield, style cannot be silenced. And that's exactly why we asked her to mix a little ASOS with her own inimitable wardrobe pieces – the fallout? A dreamy spring line-up of looks.

Styling and art direction: Laura Shehata

If we were to open your wardrobe right now, what would we find?

A lot of plain white tees, in a million different fits and cuts. About 53 pair of jeans (I'm not kidding) and old-school sneakers like Converse and Vans.


Clothing-wise, what are you obsessed with?

Jeans, hoodies and boots.

Do you prefer to be dressed up or dressed down?

Dressed up always, but casual – you've got to find the right balance. If you're dressed down, wear heels; if you're dressed up, wear flats.

What are your trainers of choice?

Adidas Gazelles.

What's on your SS17 wish list?

Definitely innocent, girlie dresses, but with a twist.

What's your top beauty tip?

Drink a lot of coconut water, think of your skin first. I drink tons of water before going to bed – you wake up with your skin feeling so much better.

Which decade's style represents you best?

The 70s – I'm wild at heart and I would've loved the music back then, too.

 

If you could be the frontwoman of any band, which would it be?

Courtney Love of Hole. I mean, the attitude!
