Soak It Up

3 years ago by

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.
