“S

Im­plic­ity and good com­pany al­ways work.” – Pablo Cop­pola

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News -

In the two years I’ve been here, a prin­ci­ple guid­ing my work for the brand is to look for­ward with a foot in the past. I also want peo­ple to know that flat shoes can be sexy; that shoul­der straps aren’t needed on ev­ery bag; that high heels are not al­ways un­com­fort­able if they’re well-made. As for so­cial me­dia’s in­flu­ence on fash­ion, I don’t en­joy the im­me­di­acy, but it’s with­out a doubt chang­ing the way we look at fash­ion. I’m not a big con­sumer of it as well—I only check out In­sta­gram. 1.25PM I break for lunch only when I’m hungry. I of­ten have a Turkey Mi­lanese, a su­per­food sal­mon salad or Eggs Royale. I don’t eat oys­ters and snails. 8PM I leave the of­fice around this time, but I end work much later if we have fit­tings. I don’t bring home work to do be­cause I’d rather stay late. I keep a note­book that con­tains notes, to-do lists, and doo­dles, but some­how, I never look at it. I stay or­gan­ised, thanks to Felic­ity, Bally’s stu­dio co­or­di­na­tor. She re­mem­bers things for me. 8.30PM Din­ner’s usu­ally at home with my part­ner. I don’t cook—I just eat. But if we go out, it’s usu­ally with friends from work and to a place close to home so I can go straight to bed faster. I en­joy a good steak and a very cold beer. If I’m cel­e­brat­ing some­thing, I’ll prob­a­bly have a tequila on the rocks. Sim­plic­ity and good com­pany al­ways work. Cheese is one of my guilty plea­sures. I love cheese. 10.35PM I think tele­vi­sion is se­ri­ously com­pet­ing with cin­ema. I love watch­ing pro­grammes such as The Good Wife, Mod­ern Fam­ily, Em­pire, In­side Amy Schumer, Satur­day Night Live, and House of Cards ... The list can go on for­ever. 12AM I slather on some Crème de La Mer. I un­wind by try­ing to read, but I al­most al­ways fall asleep even be­fore turn­ing the first page. I love the linen from The Con­ran Shop in Maryle­bone. The tex­ture’s fan­tas­tic and the bed sheets come in great colours, too. I just need a few hours of sleep to feel afresh, which is prob­a­bly why I’m not so dis­ci­plined when it comes to a time to head to bed. For me, the later, the bet­ter. I like to think that I’ll have all the sleep I want when I die.
