Portrait of Tammy Strobel

1. Nylon and Chantilly lace dress, $7,190, Prada

“Trust Miuccia Prada’s response to the Frankensteinian state of the world to be so seductive – from the unexpected combination of skin-baring cuts and fabrics to the toy-like floral applique.”

NOELLE LOH, editor-in-chief

2. Metal and cabochon earring, Gucci

“As far as I’m concerned, these are the ultimate statement ear-rings (geddit?). Extra points for being clip-ons.”

ADELINE ENG, senior designer

3. Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello acetate sunglasses, $490, Saint Laurent

“These graphic-patterned New Wave-style sunnies are exactly what I need to get into the new season’s punk trend. Siouxsie Sioux would approve.”

4. The Sponge nappa leather clutch, $11,830, Bottega Veneta

“It took one kilometre of nappa leather to create the loops on this shaggy clutch, which alone makes it top my list of weird and wonderful fashion curios this season.”

5. Sienne (1979), Herve Guibert, gelatin silver print, 6 1/2 x 10”

“As part of the Photoespana photography festival, Loewe is hosting an exhibition of the deeply intimate work of late French author and photographer Herve Guibert – known for spotlighting the devastating effects of Aids at a time when it was taboo – at its Gran Via store in Madrid. Don’t miss out – it runs till month’s end.”

6. Courbette silk pumps, $1,530, Roger Vivier

“Inspired by 18th-century court shoes and topped off with a ladylike bow, these shoes are made for the contemporary Marie Antoinette. Plus, they come in my favourite colour: pink.”
