Our September cover star fuses fashion with fun. Having started out as a stylist’s assistant and personal shopper Angela Scanlon honed her sartorial skills before hitting the small screen and becoming one of the most endearing presenters on primetime television today.
Simone Rocha AW16
“I love colour,” Scanlon admits. “When it comes to Irish designers I adore Simone Rocha, Natalie B Coleman, Danielle Romeril. We Are Islanders have amazing trousers and Richard Malone is a brilliant new conceptual designer – I think he’s going to be the next J.W. Anderson.” For shoes, she’s currently enjoying a love affair with Camilla Elphick. “I recently got a banana pair. I like shoes that have chat!” If she had to live in one designer brand for the rest of her life she’d choose Miu Miu and admits she’d happily “do time” for a chance to raid Chloë Sevigny’s wardrobe.

“Things are more casual in London,” says the TV presenter who is now based in the UK.“I’ll wear flat shoes more often there because, on a practical level, you do more ‘schlepping’ around. I’m open to smaller brands like Sadie Williams who does gorgeous lamé-printed pieces, Ashley Williams (not related), and Gül Hürgel. I’m currently obsessed with dressing like an emoji! Isa Arfen is amazing – she does lots of colour. She also does gingham. I really love anything that resembles a tablecloth or a tea towel.”
