Phillipa Gleeson for Wittner AW15

 

Your personal style in 3 words? 
Classic, comfortable and worn-in.
Your everyday uniform? 
Jeans, t-shirt and boots. Whatever I’m wearing I always wear boots and I will always be wearing something blue… Consciously or subconsciously, I’m not sure. It’s my favourite colour.
What are your winter style essentials?
 Cashmere! Jac + Jack is my go-to for winter. I cannot be warm in winter unless I’m wearing cashmere. I love how it feels like a big hug from mum!
Favourite city? 
To live – New York.
To explore – Marrakech.
Ultimate travel destination in Australia? 
Northern Territory. I absolutely love outback Australia. The sunsets, sunrises, stargazing, indigenous culture and natural wonder make it one of my favourite places in the world.
Who are your style muses? 
Michelle Phillips, Anita Pallenburg, Jane Birkin… All of those beautiful women of the 60s and 70s really.
What’s your favourite style from the Wittner Winter collection? 
The black over-the-knee boots. It is such a fun boot to wear and can really dress up a dreary winter outfit.
Your secret to confident style? 
I like to feel comfortable and I think that makes me feel confident. If I’m wearing tight jeans then I’ll wear a loose top and vice versa.
Flats or heels? 
 Flats. I’m already about 6 feet tall!
Where will you most likely be on a Saturday night?
 Out with my friends somewhere around Fitzroy, at a bar, gig or house party.
When you are not looking beautiful in front of the camera or strutting down the catwalk, what are you doing? 
I’m studying to be a psychologist so that takes up a lot of time. Otherwise, I love to paint, draw and travel!
