Exclusive: Louise Roe Interview
Author, blogger, TV host and long time lover of our labels, Louise Roe runs one of our favourite style sites, nailing relaxed yet elegant style every time. Louise talks L.A., Isabel Marant and the creative process. Plus we look back on some of her favourite style moments. Head to our Instagram now to see her exclusive BNKR takeover!
BNKR: Describe your personal style... Fairly laidback. Living in L.A., the weather lends itself to bright colours but in low-key silhouettes. Lots of denim, flat shoes, but always with a fun twist like a sleeveless trench or fab bag.
You've recently released your own book Front Roe - tell us about your creative process. I wanted to write that book for years – to create one place to answer all the questions I often get asked on social media, during makeovers, on the red carpet. I started making notes for Front Roe as far back as six years ago - it was a true passion project!
Signature scent? I switch it up, but I always go back to l’Eau de Chloe. Currently I’m wearing Jo Malone Blush Suede.
What’s on your wishlist this season? Some Isabel Marant sneakers.
Favourite place to shoot… I love finding cool graffiti walls in L.A. that I didn’t know existed. Or climbing over rocks on the beach - usually in heels - to find the perfect secluded bay. I did that recently on a filming break in Bintan, Indonesia, and we found the most stunning, untouched beach. They turned into some of my favourite pics ever for my Instagram.
One piece everyone needs for their home? A bar cart! A full one.
Who do you look to for inspiration? Some of my fashion blogger friends on Instagram. And old images of icons like Talitha Getty and Lauren Hutton.
What can we find on your coffee table? Lots of beautiful books, I’m obsessed! An old Hermès dish bought on eBay, a giant magnifying glass, and usually a cup of tea.
Top tips for easy street style? Take one thing off before you leave the house. Over-accessorizing often looks too self-conscious. Dressing simply is very chic!
Most rewarding career experience so far? Definitely publishing my book, Front Roe. It was a big moment for me getting that first copy in the mail. I couldn’t believe it.
