Hayley Menzies London


Hayley Menzies is a new London based designer whose collections are already a firm favorite with a host of celebrities and discerning fashionistas.
When I saw her pieces last year in June at Portobello Road Market I fall completely in love with them. After two weeks I was the owner of a ANABA red feather shawl.

How you would describe your personal style and your key looks?

Hayley: My style is all about relaxed glamour with a fun bohemian rocky twist.
My key looks are Jeans, vest, statement jewellery and bag and killer heels.

Where you find your inspirations?

Hayley: I´m inspired everytime I leave my studio - walking down Portobello Road where I live, when I travel to Asia and of course my friends! I´m always absorbing my surroundings and actually drive myself nuts as my creativity can spin out of control and I´m onto the next thing before I finish the first...thats my biggest Problem!

What you´re passionate about?

Hayley: Yoga and partying....hmmm does that sound a little bit yin and yang?

Which are your favorite places?

Hayley: My studio and neighbourhood. But outside of that I love parting in Ibiza, skiing in Verbier and recentreing in India and Thailand.

What is your MUST HAVE for every season?

Hayley: My must have for every season is a great shawl. My shawls tend to be trimmed with feather, fur, beads or fringing. Every woman needs a good shawl in her life!

Which is your favorite piece of your collection and why?

Hayley: My favorite piece - that´s atricky one! It all depends on how I´m feeling or what the weathers like. I´d say the Eivissa Maxi in electric blue on a sunny day or the Ayita feather shawl for a festival. I wear my Portobello Bag every day and I´m loving the electric blue one right know!

Which are the best places to wear your new summer dresses? 

Hayley: The new Eivissa dresses can be worn anywhere just as long as it´s hot enough!
I wear mine during the day in Notting Hill or for a night out! Eivissa mean Ibiza in Spanish so of course pack it for a beach holiday too.
