his trendspot­ter puts to­gether out­fits that mix sar­to­rial ele­gance with quirky play­ful­ness. There is no doubt that Pie Al­varez is at the top of her fash­ion game. Hav­ing in­terned for two years with lux­ury brand Chanel while at univer­sity in Bos­ton, Al­varez's pas­sion for fash­ion runs as deep as her po­lit­i­cal roots. Travers­ing both worlds in her favourite Fendi shoes is no easy feat; her fash­ion sense evokes her love for both pro­fes­sions which is ev­i­dent in her style choices: a con­tem­po­rary mix of in­die brands which she houses in her bou­tique LCP and her love for pieces from emerg­ing lo­cal fash­ion brands that have be­come her style sta­ple. Just like her fash­ion icon, Gio­vanna Battaglia En­gle­bert, Al­varez be­lieves fash­ion is all about hav­ing fun. "Fini hand­made batik pants, since I'm al­ways at the beach. Unique pieces like this re­ally make beach dress­ing fun and in­ter­est­ing"

I wanted some­thing fun and play­ful to wear dur­ing the last birth­day of my twen­ties"

"Sun hats for the beach are al­ways a chic fash­ion Idea. Love this hat from Ecuador's Sen­sei Stu­dio, it's a sus­tain­able fash­ion brand"
