THE THING WITH WRITING ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA etiquette is that hardly anyone ever thinks they’re guilty of anything untoward. We’re a society of blithely unaware Insta- twits, living life in a constant state of either being annoying or being annoyed.
IT’S NOT THAT I’VE NEVER DONE A PANICKED, last-minute smash-and-grab round the shops the night before a holiday. Or – as is proper – followed the hard-won tricks flogged by many a women’s magazine on how to totally rid myself of proof of a winter spent eating M&S cottage pie in a mere three days.

The queen of sassy subversion, she creates clothes that nod to political rhetoric and overflow with philosophical meaning – all with a cerebral message attached.
