A Susanna Lau (ou Susie Bubble), do site Style Bubble, concedeu uma entrevista pro blog! Que honra, gente. Sou uma grande fã dela, do blog, do estilo, dos escritos… Susie esteve em São Paulo esta semana, fotografou para a Vogue e participou do evento “You B(log)”. Como já fazia um tempinho que eu estava aguardando as respostas da Susie e elas chegaram agora, prometo que mais tarde ajeito direitinho o post fazendo a apresentação que a Susie merece. Sweetbeijos e espero que gostem!
Tell to your brazilian fans a little bit about yourself…(age, where you were born,job..)
I’m 24, I was born in London but my parents are from Hong Kong and I’ve lived in London most of my life. I’m currently the commissioning editor for Dazed Digital at Dazed & Confused magazine.
How did you start your blog and how did it become SOOO famous?
Depends how you would define ‘famous’. I started blogging in March 2006 and from that point, traffic grew quite naturally. After it started getting mentioned in the press such as Teen Vogue, Vogue.fr, Grazia and i-D magazine, I guess that’s when I started getting recognised. Other blogs started linking to me and I guess because I blogged so prolifically, it became a daily port of call for a lot of people.
What’s your best advice for looking great?
What do you wear when you want to feel powerful?
My Lanvin tuxedo jacket.
Had any good fashion adventures lately?
Well, I just got back from Sao Paulo giving a presentation about the blog which was quite random and exciting at the same time. Fashion-wise, clearing out my wardrobe has been quite an adventure in itself… For the first time, I will be going to all four fashion weeks in September which should be exhausting stuff…
Which fashion designer you admire most?
He’s deceased now but probably Yves Saint Laurent for his innovation and I admire that he went through some personal battles to create the clothes that still resonate today.
Who is your style icon?
I don’t really believe in the concept of style icons….
Where do you love to shop?
Anywhere and everywhere…can range from designer to high street to vintage to flea markets to charity shops….anywhere really can be a treasure trove…
Is your closet TOOO big? How many shoes do you have, probably?
My closet itself is not that big but I have a lot of clothes to stuff in it. I am trying to cut down though. I probably have over 200 pairs of shoes…
My inspirations are…
Currently, they’re Jackson Pollock paint splatters, Sarah Moon’s photography, Pia Stanchina’s use of materials and colours of the film White Oleander.
…not the be all and end all…
…whatever you want it to be.
How was to meet Karl Lagerfeld? Tell us a little about the experience.
I never met Karl Lagerfeld…that’s false information… I was invited by Chanel for a special bloggers-press trip for Coco Mademoiselle but we never met Karl. We met Jacques Helleu (alas…he passed away a little while after we met him…) who was the creative director for Chanel jewellery and beauty.
Share your favourite places in London.
The little stores on Cheshire Street, Borough Market, the view from Primrose Hill, Kingly Court on Carnaby Street, 59 Broadwick Street, Maison Bertaux, the Magma store for magazine browsing, St Johns restaurant….so many places and it changes all the time…
Do you know anything about brazilian fashion designers? Tell us!
Of course I love Alexandre Herchcovitch but that goes without saying. I also love what Cavalera are doing as it’s pretty wacky stuff. The prints in OESTUDIO are also quite amazing.
