Mija just made the move to New York! She’s lived all over the world, and I think it shows in her sense of style. A bit Carrie Bradshaw (that hair), a bit fashion brand manager who takes her job seriously. There’s a cool balance and she doesn’t take herself too seriously – more than ready to step out in designer PJs like it was a 90s Harper’s editorial. Welcome to the Big Apple, Mija!

Describe your style in three words:
Effortless, boyish, elegant.

What is your ideal outfit to wear everyday, your uniform?
Cotton, cotton, cotton! Cotton pants and linen top accompanied by no makeup and no hair brushing :) Having good skin, hair and body allows you to put on pretty much anything and look good. Let’s call it natural luxury.

You’re always traveling. How does your wardrobe showcase international style influences?
I am constantly on the move so I definitely think that plays into my style. I try to pick up the best from Europe and US – I think I am dressed up and dressed down at the same time, funnily enough.

Your outfits are a blend of luxury and more affordable pieces. What’s your trick to mixing the two?
The key is to not take yourself or the garments you wear too seriously. I like to invest in elevated essentials – beautiful fabrics and structured designs by established brands. At the same time, I am known for supporting young talents and mixing it all together. Style should reflect your personality and suit your figure. When I admire someone’s look I always think to myself, “Who is this girl? What is her story?”
