“I adore the rabbit-edged sweater – what a cool look to keep warm in for winter!”
Plum and Matthew go back to the very start of his career: “I remember a heavenly package of exotic silk swatches landing on my desk at British Vogue. There was a note inside saying something like ‘I thought you’d love these… please can we meet?’
On that first meeting: “I’ll admit I was mesmerised. Matthew had amazing personal style. Not only did I want everything he was wearing, I wanted everything that he pulled out of his bag and scattered all over my desk, especially the beautiful dresses in turquoise chiffon with lilac butterflies embroidered on them.”
