Susannah Frankel: 'When I pack my winter wardrobe away, military precision is called for'

Ever since my mother reached into the pocket of a cashmere dressing gown and found it to be replete with tiny, wriggling, soon-to-be moths I have been neurotic about these apparently innocuous creatures. There have been fatalities: a fine-gauge Lanvin cardigan with crystal buttons was unceremoniously consumed by them; a Rick Owens scarf was so woolly they had their fill without too obvious a fall-out: I dry-cleaned and still wear it.

"I suppose you like it because it's small – because it's the size and weight of a magazine, of a powder compact? It's not make-up, you know. It's too expensive."
