After earning a first class degree in Fashion and Knitwear at the prestigious Central St. Martins College and working for both Alexander McQueen and Matthew Williamson, Savannah Miller went on to become Co-Creative Director of the label Twenty8Twelve with her sister Sienna Miller. After twelve successful seasons the stylish sisters stepped down from their positions to pursue other projects, for Savannah this led to her starting her own label, Savannah.
Launched last week (seen here) Savannah has once again created a very cool, easy-to-wear range of clothes, but this time at a far more accessible price, “This collection is for everyone!" Savannah told me, "it's effortless, easy and affordable clothing to make you feel great without busting your bank account.”
Despite being insanely busy with her new label (sold exclusively at nelly.com) and with being a dedicated mum to her three small (and perfect) children, Savannah found the time to share with The London Chatter some secrets about her enviable London style…
My Style In 3 Little Words – Classic, bohemian, easy.
This Season Every Gal Needs – A great boyfriend coat. I have an ash grey woollen one in my collection called James which I will not be taking off this season.
My British Fashion Icon – Audrey Hepburn. She was so delicate and chic. Also Alexa Chung. Like Audrey before her, Alexa's style is so effortless, her clothes never wear her and she always looks like herself, even if she is wearing a Chanel gown.
My Favourite Boutique – Liberty London. I know it's not strictly a boutique, but the buy there is as if it were. It is the perfect edit of the best collections - and you know you are going to want all of it! The same applies to Amie on Ledbury Road. They only stock APC, Isabel Marant and Vanessa Bruno... What more could anyone want?!
My Favourite British Designer – To look at it would be Christopher Kane. He is an artist and he never ceases to amaze me. To wear, I would say Rag & Bone because they make the best knitwear around - it's cool and so comfortable - I live in it!
At Gunpoint; Bags OR Shoes – Bags!
My First Fashionista Memory – Ushering for Alexander McQueen at one of his show which was in a glass box. I was eighteen years old and that night totally changed my life.
My Saturday Night Outfit – Errrm... My pyjamas! I spend the weekends at home in the countryside with my family.
My Sunday Brunch Outfit – The same!
OMG I Can’t Believe I Wore – Such a short dress at mine and Sienna's first Twenty8Twelve show... When I lifted my arm to wave at the end I nearly flashed the entire audience.
Forget My Last Meal, My Last Outfit Would Be – My wedding dress. It may sound a bit Miss Haversham of me but I must admit, it was gorgeous.
My Style Tip – Iron or steam your clothes, it makes the most massive difference when you wear them. Also, don't let your clothes wear you - only wear pieces that resonate with who you are otherwise you will feel and look uncomfortable.
