My obsessions: Luna de Casanova

The fashion commentator and ultra-stylish Sloane Street local on her fridge essentials, non-negotiable indulgences, current playlist and favourite local dining spots

4 March 2024

Unwaveringly stylish Sloane Street resident Luna de Casanova is a constant source of fashion inspiration and is regularly snapped as one of the Street’s most fashionable people in our Seen on Sloane street-style features, frequently stepping out to walk her beloved dogs in looks that could have come straight from the runway.

From her favourite reads to the beauty staples that she can’t do without, these are Luna de Casanova’s obsessions…


I’m currently re-reading The Good Soldier by Ford Madox Ford for the nth time. I love it for its Englishness, perfect construction and unreliable narration. I’ve just finished I, Claudius by Robert Graves, a stark reminder that life in ancient Rome could be nasty, brutish and short. 

One of the last things I bought and cherish is a beautiful Balmain dress from the 1950s that I successfully bid on at an auction. I love its classic silhouette and beautiful embroidery, and have only been parted from it once when it was exhibited in Paris.

My fridge is never without multiple packs of Cinco Jotas jamón, the Spanish culinary equivalent of the Swiss Army Knife.

My non-negotiable indulgences are too many to list, let alone negotiate, but include Läderach chocolate, with FrischSchoggi Raspberry Blackberry White being a particular favourite.

I’m watching Feud: Capote vs The Swans because there is something curiously compelling about ugly fights in beautiful surroundings – just ask Logan Roy.

When no one is around, I listen to classical music mixed with 1960s French and Italian songs from Françoise Hardy, Dalida, Jean Ferrat, Mina, Gino Paoli and others. Favourites include Aimer à perdre la raison, La canzone dell’amore perduto, Il cielo in una stanza and Il mondo.

The beauty staples I can’t live without are Doctors Tatiana + Rishi and their wonderful treatments and creams.

My mental health would suffer without walking my dogs George and Percy in the park every morning, or being able to exercise and practise yoga.

I’m thinking about Jules Renard’s quote: “Look for the ridiculous in everything and you will find it.”

My favourite local eating spots are Azzurra, Anya Café, The Club Room at The Peak with its fantastic views over London. 

I’m dreaming about sitting in the sun with a view of the Faraglioni, the dramatic rock formations that pop out of the Mediterranean off the coast of Capri.
