EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Baroness Jenkin swears never to buy new clothes again

As shopping for second-hand clothes has become more and more fashionable, sister Anne Jenkin has done better by boasting that she hasn’t bought any new clothes for an entire decade.

“Not only have I not bought ‘new clothes’ for ten years, but apart from underwear, I have no intention of ever buying new clothes,” says the wife of the great curator Sir Bernard Jenkins.

Blue-blooded Baroness Jenkin, 66, says shopping is an addiction that needs to be kicked. “I haven’t been to a store in years,” she tells me.

“I have no idea what they are doing because I don’t want to waste my time shopping, it’s not my thing.” Once you wean yourself off – it’s kind of like weaning off sugar – you won’t want to do it again.

Lady Jenkin comes from a great background. Her father was the son of the physicist the 4th Baron Rayleigh, while her mother is the daughter of the Conservative politician the 1st Viscount Davidson.

Green Crusade: Lady Jenkin and her husband Sir Bernard

A former trustee of Unicef ​​UK and Cool Earth, her mission is to help save the planet. She declares. “I can’t bear the idea of ​​a textile dump. I sometimes shop at charity shops and eBay, if I need to freshen up, and, of course, I have a professional life that demands it.

She adds: “I only own about ten or fifteen things. Overall, it’s part of my anti-waste theme, but it’s also not how I want to spend my money. I’m just not interested in spending money on clothes.

Highlights of her thrifty style include wearing a charity shop hat to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral and a rented wedding dress for her wedding.

“It’s a part of my life to keep,” says the curator. “To get the most out of an outfit, you need to wear it 33 times. This is what we should all aim to do.
