In one of those weekend celebrity questionnaires Laurence Olivier was asked for his pet hate. “I hate wire coathangers.” So many costumes to put on, take off, so many characters - little wonder their dependencies end in a heap. We contemplate our own wardrobe, the stark reminders of what we are not, the different personas we put on for the world and take off later. Even how many coathangers enumerates tales about our personality. You might be anonymous as a monk or chameleon-like as a fashionista. November spring clean’s a good time, storing away the winter coat, reintroducing tropical shirts.
