The Best Wardrobes in Britain: Lisa Aiken

Welcome to the fifth highly exciting installment of Who What Wear UK’s Best Wardrobes in Britain. It’s where we do exactly what that title says on the tin: delve into the most fantastical, awe-inspiring and downright influential wardrobes in this fair country of ours. We’re zeroing in on the girls who cause the street style photographers to press their shutters as much as the women you don’t yet know—the ones who fly under the radar with secretly incredible clothing collections.

Today is all about Lisa AikenNet-a-Porter's fashion director and the woman responsible for our extensive wish lists and dented wallets. She is something of an oracle or fashion deity for the Who What Wear team in the UK. We trust her every recommendation (and attend her seasonal trend presentations without fail); we look to her wardrobe choices and unwaveringly cool NAP edit to make our own moves; and she's first on our list when it comes to naming talented, super-friendly fashion industry figures we'd like to have around a dinner table. We managed to pin the jet-setting East London–based Lisa down between a ski trip and a Palm Springs event to delve into the closet we've all been desperate to see.
