5 Minutes With: Holly Titheridge

Holly Titheridge is many things. Co-founder of premium digital fashion and lifestyle publication Base Colour, content creator, partner, style icon, world traveller and all ’round influential woman. When she’s not jetting off overseas for fashion week or an Instagram-worthy vacay, you will find her at home with partner and equally-stylish other half of Base Colour, Shaun Lyle.

In 20 short questions, we get familiar with the life and times of Holly Titheridge.

Occupation… Editor of basecolour.com and Creative Director at Base Colour Creative.

Currently reading… Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits & Leanne Shapton.

Currently watching… Outlander – cannot believe I have only started this now!! Four seasons to watch during social isolation has definitely put a smile on my face!

Currently listening to… anything ’90s.

Currently on high rotation… a quality face mask (Verso Enzyme Peel) and hair mask (Shu Uemura Hair Mask). Using this downtime to look after my skin and hair. One upside to not wearing much make-up or styling my hair as often while staying home during this time.

My coffee order is… one soy latte please!

In the future I will… cherish the moments that I previously took for granted...

Last night I dreamed… something amazing I’m sure – but I can never remember!

In the future I will… cherish the moments that I previously took for granted – going out for drinks with girl friends, enjoying a long lunch at a beautiful restaurant and travelling to beautiful locations around the world are some of them.

My favourite brand is… ooh I have many but if I was to say a brand that I wear often it would be Acne Studios. It’s such a wearable brand!

I believe in… a better world after all of this COVID-19 chaos is over.

If you could be anyone for a day… I would be be Elsa Hosk – is she not a vision.. and that bod!!

Three words to describe my style are… classic, masculine, tailored.

My ultimate style icon is… Rosie Huntington-Whitely.

To me, self-care means… putting yourself first.

I like to unwind by… pouring myself a wine and working on my puzzle skills. I recently picked up a 6000 piece puzzle to get me through social isolation – let me tell you, I think I will still be working on it in a few years time!

On the weekends you’ll find me… going for a long walk along the beach.

My favourite fashion era is… the ’80s. Shoulder pads and oversized blazers are everything!

Comfort food to me is… chocolate!

When I exercise I… feel so much better for it afterwards!

If I could live anywhere in the world it would be… Australia. I have been fortunate enough to travel to some beautiful locations around the world but I can confidently say that we live in the best country in the world.
