Sophie-Birgitt Debuf wears Maje suede jacket, black silk Sandro top and Sophie Birgitt 18K rose gold Gold Envy earrings with chocolate diamonds. “I like to stick to hushed tones and colour palettes that don’t scream for attention,” she says.

“I don’t follow trends when it comes to sneakers, but I do have a little collection going on between Nike, New Balance and Converse. This is a must when I’m running around from meeting to meeting,” she says.

Debuf wears a black top by IRO and jacket by Maje. Her sunglasses are by Dior and her leather trousers are from J Brand.

... And what she wears away from work

For some glamour, Debuf opts for a classic Chanel clutch, and her own brand’s Cubic Halo ring.

As optional accessories, she likes to use her Céline sunglasses and a selection of her own jewellery; her current line is inspired by Hong Kong’s architectural skyline.
