Walpole CEO Comment | Clothes… and other things that matter

“If, like me, you’re staring mournfully at a wardrobe full of fabulous clothes, none of which are worth wearing for WFH, but are begging for the chance to be worn to meetings or restaurants or parties once all this is over, you will love Alexandra Shulman’s memoir, Clothes and Other Things That Matter. As Vogue’s editor for 25 years, few people know more about fashion than Alexandra, and so I’m delighted that she’ll be our guest on Thursday 28th January, to talk about her book, and about the transforming, exhilarating power of dressing up.”

“The outfit I’m most longing to put on is my double breasted Kathryn Sargent suit (pictured), made from an eye-catching blue and red tartan from Dugdale Bros & Co. Every time I wear it the craftsmanship of Savile Row tailoring skills and the quality of British cloth make me feel like I’m really knocking home the message about British luxury – if there was a perfect uniform for a Walpole CEO, this would be it. It’s been to No.10 and to Buckingham Palace, to New York and to Paris and looks a million dollars with scarlet suede Manolo’s.

“Send us a picture of the outfit that you’re most looking forward to wearing once we’re able to go out in the world again, or of you wearing something that holds special memories for you, and between now and Alexandra’s event, Walpole will post the pictures on our Instagram Stories (and I’ll pinch some of my favourites for my @walpoleceo Instagram feed).”

And don’t forget to get your ticket for Clothes and Other Things that Matter on Thursday 28th January at 5pm by clicking here. Tickets are £20 and include a hardback copy of Alexandra’s book, with all profits donated to the NSPCC. *NB: Please buy your ticket before noon on 22nd January if you would like to receive your copy of the book before the event.
