Fashion fades, only style remains the same.
—Coco Chanel

An individual’s style says something about them before you meet them. Before they speak they are already putting a message out into the world about who they are. We all have a style, but precious few of us reach icon status. So, in honour of Fashion Month, we have compiled a roll call of our favourite style icons.

Alain Delon is an actor and model who lives in France. He’s worked for a multitude of fashion houses and we like his effortless stylish aesthetic.

In the Absolutely Fabulous Movie, Kate Moss is practically the plot’s pivotal character. She’s idolised, loved and revered as the quintessential face of London fashion.
