Upstairs, in the furthest cupboard, I have some vintage clothes stored away for the day when Bella wishes to experiment. In amongst them is a full length chocolate brown velvet single breasted coat with the sort of split up the back that made you feel like a swash buckling highway man when walking down a street. The decadence of the material felt such a statement of the times, it was hard to see it having a real purpose again.

But there is a point of view that says when the world is going to the dogs, party like there’s no tomorrow….
