The founder and designer of Ducie Fashions, Ducie Keam-George, reveals what inspires her

My favourite piece…
is the new Ducie black parka with buttery soft nude fur lining and hood. It’s a casual style in smart colours with a touch of glamour. I like to wear it oversized for a bit of edge.

My favourite designer…
currently is Alessandro Michele at Gucci. He has completely turned the label around and made it totally irresistible. It’s so colourful, luxurious and cool. You can’t get better. I want everything.

My style icon…
is fashion editor Barbara Martelo. She gets it right with a mix of classic but always on point style. She’s super fit, dresses immaculately but doesn’t ever wear any makeup so she’s real. Idol.

My favourite holiday destination…
is my mum’s traditional chattel house on the south coast of Barbados. It’s a bohemian paradise, surrounded by topical plants and lush vegetation and is frequently visited by the island’s wildlife. It’s so relaxing there. It takes me a week to get out and do anything.

My signature scent…
Le Labo’s Fleur d’Oranger from Liberty. It’s a fresh sent that wakes me up and makes me feel strong and ready to face the day.

My favourite piece of art…
Pale Pink Heart, 2011, by Sam McEwen. It’s very simple and minimal but the colour and shape make me feel warm and happy.

My favourite building…
I’m a sucker for anything Georgian. That period to me is perfection. Fill it with vibrant colours, Farrow and Ball painted floors and sleek, modern, Scandinavian furniture and homewares and that’s my dream home right there.
