Style star Marta Pozzan’s best summer styles
The Italian blogger, actress and all-around It-girl has a knack for mixing vintage finds with statement prints and sky-high platforms. We met up with her in LA.
Summer is approaching quickly, but if you live in southern California, chances are that the change in season will pass you by fairly unnoticed. Since it allegedly never rains there, we couldn’t think of any better place to preview the best looks to wear for the laid-back season ahead.
Photographer Adam Katz Sinding met up with Marta Pozzan, the Italian-born/LA-based street style star, actress, model and YouTube personality who’s perhaps best known for her cult-followed self-titled blog, outside her LA home. Here, she gives us a sneak peek of the must-have pieces and styles from H&M that she’ll be wearing for hot summer days and nights out through the LA summer.
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGNER?
“Miu Miu. Their clothes are like a living fairy tale to me. A Wes Anderson directed fairy tale.”
WHO IS YOUR STYLE ICON?
“Jared Leto. He's my forever hero because he always manages to stand out in whatever field he's working: acting, singing, directing. And he does it with impeccable style. That’s my goal.”
WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
“Platform heels and boyfriend jeans.”
WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?
“Los Angeles – cliché, I know, but it just is the best. LA meets all my needs and desires and also gave me my dream job.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
“Besides ice cream and fonuts [a doughnut that is baked or steamed instead of fried], I love a good ramen dish.”
IF YOU HAD TO LEAVE YOUR APARTMENT IN A HURRY, WHAT WOULD YOU GRAB?
“Sunglasses, lip balm and gum. And my phone of course.”
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO LOOK?
“A pair of beige or black booties, oversized denim jeans, a crop top and a vintage faux-fur jacket. And big and colourful sunnies!”
WHY IS FASHION IMPORTANT?
“Fashion is important because it’s a tool to create art by also telling stories that can hopefully inspire others and make them feel like their own stories are being told in a way that feels real, authentic and meaningful. For me fashion isn't just about the clothes but about the reality behind them and what they stand for.”
IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN HISTORY, WHAT FASHION ERA WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE IN?
“I would want to live in the Age of Enlightenment and wear white wigs and the tightest corsets ever.”
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?
“A philologist. Philology is the study of language in written historical sources; it is a combination of literary criticism, history and linguistics. I just used to love to find out all about words and their origins.”
WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY FASHION PLEASURE?
“Wearing a waist trainer…”
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET?
“Post Malone. His music is so raw and real, it really makes my day better every time I listen to it.”
WHAT DO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW?
WHAT IS YOUR LATEST BEAUTY DISCOVERY?
“Microneedling therapy, it’s like the luxury version of a facial.”
