All of the people we feature on the site are people we meet and find inspiring. Whether it’s their work, their take on life, or their style — and usually all of the above! It’s always followed by a rapid fire conversation (that’s life in the digital world, you know…), kind of like the one we had after Garance spotted Alexandra in Paris…
Neada: Did you get G’s photo? She suggested we shoot that girl Alexandra, great style…
Brie: She’s cool! And I love RIKA, I think its actually on Erik’s “to-buy” list before we head home. She’s the fashion director.
Neada: Ok, emailing her riiiiight now…
Erik: I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that and fan-girl out.
Brie: It would be great to shoot a few looks!
Erik: Cool, and a portrait.
Two days later, Neada and Erik return to the apartment near République soaking wet….
Brie: How was your shoot with Alexandra??!
Erik: Great, she’s so nice — and she loves jeans. Just like me.
Neada: Yep, our kind of girl. Really cool, super sweet. And smart, ambitious…
Erik: Yeah, no biggie…
Neada: She’s just casually winning at life…
Brie: There is such an ease about her.
Neada: I love that her style is very distinct, not just trends but a real sense of taste.
Erik: And she had one of those sailors caps that G loves. It was raining…but we made it work, very cinematic!
Brie: Oh, I love the cap look too!
Erik: Cool! Annnnnnd break for a coffee… number 7.
And then we have a celebratory dose of caffeine and feel a little happier knowing that we had the chance to meet someone great, who’s doing something cool — and show a little bit of them to you.
