Labels: On track, May I introduce
"When shopping, I start by colors and then check the quality—I love natural fabrics." (via: makeitlast.se)
“I always find more inspiration in art than in social media. You can’t find anything new on Instagram. I’d much rather go to a museum and look at 200-year-old paintings and be inspired by the colors or the composition.” (via: hm.com)
“Madrid has the most amazing light, and the most beautiful buildings. I grew up in the middle of nowhere outside Alicante, and Madrid is a big city — but it’s still so warm and welcoming. And inspiring! It’s literally the place where all the creative people from the rest of Spain — artists, music groups, designers — come together. Madrid is like home to me now.” (via: hm.com)
“I have never told anyone in fashion this, but when I was a teenager I was emo. Black short hair with a fringe, band t-shirts, lots of chains and black eye makeup. It’s a completely different style from how I dress now, but in some ways it’s still the same. I’m still being myself, playing with clothes and accessories. Some weeks when I’m working a lot I still dress only in black, other weeks I’m more colorful. My style is eclectic.” (via: hm.com)
“I’m a girl, and I really love to be feminine. But at the same time, I’m more comfortable in men’s clothes. I like to play with fashion and change the shape of my body so that people will see and find inspiration in the clothes I’m wearing and not just… me and my body. Wearing an oversized blazer over a dress or a girly blouse makes me feel both more feminine and full of power.” (via: hm.com)
Daily Essentials: “A book to read on the train or the bus — I don’t want to be on the phone all the time. Lip balm and lipstick, which I use with just a little touch on my lips and cheeks. A notebook to write down everything I have to do the next day. And my analog pocket camera that I got from my mom. She always took pictures of me and my siblings with it when we were kids.” (via: hm.com)
SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT NO ONE WOULD EVER EXPECT?
“I have seven dogs. I used to work at a shelter for abandoned dogs, and when it shut down I took the dogs with me. They live at my parent’s place, which is more like a park than a house. I miss them a lot.”
MOST PRIZED POSSESSION? “
A really old hairbrush in a beautiful crystal box, which was my great grandmother’s.”
THE FIRST JOB YOU EVER HAD?
“When I was 16 I worked in a shoe store. For free! I really love shoes.”
THREE THINGS YOU LOVE?
“My family, traveling, art & fashion.”
WHEN DO YOU GET NERVOUS?
“I’m super shy and get nervous all the time. I work hard on this, to talk with people I don’t know and to come out of my bubble, but it’s really difficult for me.”
MOST PLAYED SONG ON YOUR SPOTIFY?
“The Cure – Friday I’m in love.”
SOMETHING EVERYONE SHOULD TRY?
“Swimming naked in the sea. I did it just the other week where my parents live.” BEST GIFT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED? “It sounds so material, but when I moved away from home to study fashion, my grandmother gave me her vintage Chanel bag. I love it.”
BEST GIFT YOU’VE EVER GIVEN?
“For Father’s Day last year I gave my dad tickets to a concert with Roger Waters from Pink Floyd. We went together and he was so happy and cried and said ‘I’m so proud of you!’. It's such a great memory.”
