What would your specialist subject be on
London bus routes! I’m not sure why I’m so obsessed with buses, but ask me about any route and I’ll know. I’m better than the Transport For London app! The funny thing is that I don’t even take the bus that much.
What else are you into?
I write a fashion blog igobyfrankie.com and I love exploring London with my boyfriend to take pictures for it. It’s a great occasion to discover hidden gems in the city I didn’t know about (I’ve been living here for three years but London is so big, I’m not sure I’ll ever know this city well)! I also love making clothes on my sewing machine.
What's your favourite coffee table book?
It's difficult to choose but one of my favourites is a French book called
Enfance (Childhood). In it, author Nathalie Sarraute examines her life through memories of her childhood. I love it because it always reminds me about the importance of reflecting on the past; it helps me focus on where I’m from and allows me to be more sensible when making decisions for the future.
What's your favourite album cover?
It has to be
Abbey Road by The Beatles. I love the sort of #youcantsitwithus attitude going on, and don’t even get me started on their style! Suits, denim and flares à la 70s? Just kill me now – those guys are my ultimate masculine style crush!
What's in your wardrobe?
I don’t have a wardrobe – it’s a huge closet! I love rails because it’s the perfect way to see all my clothes and having them on display like that allows me to think of new combinations. It's a good way to get your creativity on in the morning, plus I have so many clothes that if they were all in a wardrobe, I would forget about some of them and never wear them.
What are your favourite items?
At the moment, I’m massively in love with this kimono found in Spitalfields market and these Kurt Geiger shoes I got for my birthday from my boyfriend. Bold colours all thrown together: the kind of thing that makes my heart melt (as well as my bank account).
