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"
