Trail Blazers Solange Knowles thinks you need to meet these awesome ladies. We tend to agree.
What's your best kept shopping secret? Eva: My mum's advice. She is the only person who will give me an honest opinion when I'm considering a new purchase. Jill: Thrift store shopping around Palm Beach and Miami! Women who move down there to retire just unload their crazy designer wardrobes to the Goodwill. It's a gold mine. Saada: Borrowing from friends!
Who are your style icons? Marjon: I'm inspired by so many women these days. Chloë Sevigny, Solange, Diana Vreeland, Miriam Makeba, Diane Kruger, Michelle Elie. I respond to women with bite and intellect, who take chances, and seem supremely happy and secure within their own skin. Jill: I've always loved Jane Birkin, Debbie Harry, and Lizzy Mercier Descloux. Right now I really into what Ursina Gysi is up to. She has the most original style and sensibility that I've seen in a long time?—a little sporty and a little '70s, while very "next".
What current trend can you not stand? Saada: The lack of women of colour on the runway. Eva: As a hat enthusiast I would have to say the ongoing trend of hatless-ness! Marjon: Peplum tops. It's been done.
If your closet could talk, what would it ask for this season? Saada: A new winter coat! One that is versatile, can be worn with jeans and a tee, but can also be dressed up. Jill: A pair of black Prada Spazzolato Fume Leather Sandals. Marjon: All things Carven! She wants their entire Fall 2013 collection, and then some.
Finish this sentence: “If I won $100 in Bingo, I would…” Eva: I would buy myself a ridiculous amount of fresh flowers and a nice bottle of wine. Saada: Treat myself and a friend to a nice dinner! Jill: Buy 100 Lottery tickets.
