IN town, on Tuesday, heard Audrey Hepburn’s son, Luca Dotti speak of his family life with the broadcaster, Gianluca Longo, at the V&A. We celebrated the publication of the book ‘Audrey in Rome’, containing snapshots of Hepburn during the three decades she lived in the Italian city.
So far London Fashion Week is thrilling me, more than usual. The clothes, the looks, the colours are Modern, again. Not in a Givenchy, Quant way, but now more reliant on cut and drape for drama than since the 1970s.
