1. Name/Age/Occupation?
Siobhán Sumption, 26, Biomedical Scientist

2. Tell me about one thing you're wearing.
This bag was a gift from my family in Boston. I’d started a new job and wanted to treat myself to my first ‘good handbag’ but couldn’t find one I liked enough. My family knew I'd been looking for a bag and surprised me with this on Christmas day! I love it’s classic design and the fact that it goes with most things in my wardrobe. Every time I wear it I’m reminded of my time in Boston.


3. What influences the way you dress?
I’m probably most influenced by people I know - if I see a particular style I like I’ll try and adapt it into my own wardrobe. 

4. Tell me about the most dependable item of clothing you own.
The most cherished and dependable piece in my wardrobe is a Barbour waxed jacket I bought a few years ago. I spend a lot of time outdoors so I find myself reaching for it again and again. It’s very practical for Irish weather and I think the waxed finish get’s better with age.

5. Last question... timeless or on-trend?
Definitely timeless. I prefer to buy clothes that I know I’ll wear year after year rather than trendy pieces I’ll probably regret a few months later.
