MIN LUNA All-around cool girl and fashion stylist on comfort dressing, Serge Gainsbourg, and her early days as a rugged tomboy. By Amy Yasmine.
It’s hard to imagine Min Luna as a rebellious tomboy in the early years of her teens, especially for someone who’s so impeccably dressed in a white-on-white offshoulder ensemble for our early morning shoot. But that’s exactly the story that was painted by the fashion stylist, whose days are now spent consulting countless local celebrities, magazines and retailers. “When I was studying, I was a lab rat to my coursemates, who saw the potential in this then girl-nextdoor tomboy. They pratically turned me into their Barbie doll, and after some time, I somehow found myself at a fashion magazine,” she explains. “For that, I am forever thankful and grateful to them, for showing me the light.”
Needless to say, Min has since lived and breathed fashion – as clichéd as it may sound, and a lot of that has much to do with getting her foot in the door. “I was this colourful kid in my twenties when I was in my editorial position. It was then that I fully experimented with my style; combining unexpected colours, such as electric blue with hints of aquamarine, just to make a chic statement,” she quips. “These days however, I’m a lot more laid-back and tend to gravitate towards easy and summery looks, rather than trying too hard. You can be comfortable without compromising your style, you know!”

Truth be told, comfort is definitely the golden word here, and nobody knows it better than Min. And why wouldn’t she? After spending many years and countless of hours on the job, you best bet that sometimes, less is definitely more. “Working as a stylist means that I’m constantly on my feet, be it styling for a television commercial, or out loaning and sourcing fashion pieces for my clients,” she shares. “Usually I’d be in my culottes with basic tops, or summer dresses which I pair with super trendy sandals – practical, comfortable and easy to move in.” Although, she later admits that tailored trousers and pointy heels are her go-to ensembles for meeting clients. Think Amal Clooney in that Stella McCartney cream power combo at her Venetian wedding nuptials. “A subtle way to tell them I mean business,” she laughs.
As she rummages through her carefully curated possessions (major wardrobe envy going on right there), Min continues to divulge her current online obsessions. “At the moment, I
