I was lucky enough to make a Utah-bound getaway with my family last weekend. It was amazing! We spent a few nights at the Amangiri Resort – a luxury hotel tucked away in a mountainous region of Utah and surrounded by breathtaking scenery, all-encompassed by nature. We went on hikes, ate incredible food and relaxed in our beautiful hotel pool. I’ll be dreaming of this place for years to come.
Wes Anderson. I absolutely love this guy’s quirkiness and get such a kick out of whatever he creates. The art direction in his movies really connects me to my childhood and brings me back to the 70′s – a time period which also heavily inspires my clothing design. Wes Anderson is not afraid to be different and get people laughing, curious and wondering what is actually normal. Let’s admit it, we all have a little Wes Anderson in us. It’s just a matter of letting it loose. Now let’s whip out our sweatbands and red beanies. And need I elaborate on how he inspires me? I saw those nameplates and needed one for my fave jackets, Magnus and Roxbury.
My parents have always inspired me and supported my fashion endeavors. They’ve even been fascilitating my striped shirt addiction since I was a kid. I remember them bringing one home for me from their trip to Portofino – instant love. Maybe that’s how it all began! They themselves were in the fashion industry (my dad started a company called Happy Legs) so they totally get it.
