How would you describe your style?
Italian! But then, when I go back home my sister looks me up and down and says with eyes rolling, “gosh you can tell you live in England now.”
What is there too much of in your wardrobe?
Black, I mostly wear black clothes and I have lots of black sweaters.
What are your go-to labels?
Stewart & Brown for organic cotton t-shirts, Henrietta Ludgate for gorgeous coats, Joseph for leggings and trousers, Kami Organics for work outfits and Yoox.com to shop online.
What's the most treasured possession in your wardrobe?
My old Converse All Stars sneakers. I've had them since I was 18 years old.
Do you plan your outfits or throw on whatever's to hand?
I plan my outfits during the week, depending on who I have to meet for work. And throw on whatever is at hand at weekends.
What are you happiest wearing?
I’ve just launched my new label Livia Firth Design (LFD) and the first piece I designed is a skull necklace, it's made in the UK with recycled bronze. I have lots of fun wearing it, it's a long chain studded with skulls so it can be worn in so many ways – loose, knotted, layered around the neck, or even wrapped around the wrist to make a chunky layered bracelet.
What's your sartorial guilty pleasure?
Spending as much time as I can in my pyjamas at weekend.
Whose wardrobe would you love to steal?
My girlfriend Daniela who has the biggest collection of vintage Prada I have ever seen!
How do you organise your wardrobe?
By season, which is very Italian of me. At the end of the winter, I wash all my sweaters and put them in plastic bags and store them for the summer. At the end of the summer, I put away all the light clothes and take out the winter ones.
Where do you look for inspiration if you don't know what to wear?
I hate to say this, but I always know what to wear - or at least what I want to wear.
Have you ever had a stylist and, if so, what are the best tips they've ever given you?
I could never work with a stylist, I have a strong personality and we would fight all the time. But I work with Jocelyn Whipple, our Green Carpet Challenge stylist, who helps me sourcing all the eco labels. Without her I wouldn’t know how to do it.
