interview: susie bubble

First, we peeked into Coco’s world and learnt about her “fuck me pumps”. This post was very popular, and now Susie of Style Bubble steps up (finally, apologies for the wait, but hopefully treating you mean has kept you keen..) and shares some of her wisdom.

If you could work for any designer, who would it be, and why?
I've heard so many nightmare intern stories that I'm hesitant to say any designer at all! I don't come from a design background, so it would be in a press relations role and with that in mind, I'd love to work for really new designers like Danielle Scutt, Justin Smith (a milliner) or designers that are established but not huge like Jens Laugesen or Jean Pierre Braganza.

What is the most loved item in your wardrobe?
It's a 1920's kimono that isn't actually Japanese but a piece of French chinoiserie. It was a find at Clignancourt market in Paris. It's very delicate and sort of falling apart. I'm trying to figure out a way to wear it as a piece of outerwear without it getting battered too much but I like to wear it around the house with a dodgy t-shirt, frilly shorts and shoes that are waaay too high.

Which Style Icons are most influential to you?
I know it sounds really pretentious but I don't have a Style Icon. I admire people's style but that never figures into my own style. Somehow, I just don't really know how to make that connection between someone I admire and my own wardrobe.

Do you agree with real fur being used in the industry?
If you had asked me a few years ago I would have said 'Absolutely NO!' but I have friends who work with fur in fashion so it's a bit of a touchy subject. I think the fur industry has been incorrectly represented by PETA. I'm sort of sitting on the wall with this one...

Which celebrity’s style do you despise most?
I'm pretty baffled by how Girls Aloud dress. But it's not exactly despising, just plain confusion.

How would you improve their look?
Tell them to tone down the slap.

If you were limited to shopping at three shops, or fashion houses, which would they be, and why?The designer consignment store Bang Bang on Goodge Street for the sheer variety in labels and vintage they get in on a regular basis. Yves Saint Laurent for a range of well-cut everything and Dover Street Market for adding a touch of the insane if needs be.

Good interview! I can relate to her comment "I don't know how to make that connection between someone I admire and my own wardrobe" because I'm the same way. I'm completely self-centered about clothes. I wear what I think flatters me. I couldn't afford the wardrobe of those people I most admore anyway.

ah girls aloud! why did i not think of them? i actually cannot stand the way they dress, it looks so cheap and it probably isnt
thats so funny you had that dream, i always dream about celebrities (i think it is all the gossip blogging)
the funniest was a dream that i played strip poker with 50 cent
i am way more rebelious in my sleep
and i think christina has announced her pregnancy now hasn't she?
oh well we all know
great post! x x x x

Ellie Lee said...

Michelle said...

Great interview,it is always really interesting to hear what Susie Bubble says about style as her blog is so unique. Can't wait to read the second part.

Romeika said...

Great pics and very good interview! On the fur issue i'm just so against it and i've always been. Good times those when supermodels standed up naked for the sake of not wearing fur.

re: Thank you for the movie tip, i've googled it and it seems like the Billy Elliot's breakthough male Jamie Bell plays the leading character, very good. I've written down the title.

Victor said...

aww the comment credits thing
well I put the links up of people who comment on my previous posts, makes it easier for people to go to their pages and for me to do also.
It kinda started when I ran a personal site a few years ago, everybody was doing it I guess I just thought i'd start it up again, haven't heard any complaints.

suzy rocks, she got famous so quick!

Susana Rodrigues said...

hi :)

i love these interviews! Its cool to know more our fellow bloggers :)


Ella Gregory said...

is it just me or is perez really pissing you off at the moment?
its his constant attacks on britney that is doing it for me. It's like he's become obsessed, and it isn't even funny anymore.
Hasn't it reached the point its just sad that she is such a mess?
And also I think you have started a trend.
We collaborated via blogs first!
