As a secret admirer of the breezy brand Sundry, I was curious to know about the sunny soul behind it –so I did some digging and found this whimsical manifesto.
Intrigued to know more…I caught up with the creative force – Mr. Matthieu Leblan and got the DL on his M.O.
His clothes are an ocean inspired collection of sun bleached bright knits with DEEE luxe stretch and softness – casual dresses, sweats, and t’s with prints that say beach in an understated way. The thoughtful details are stand out –like the dip-died drawcords
Here’s a little Q&A with Mr. Leblan – he’ll make you a fan too!
AQC – Tell me how you got from Art School in Paris to the shores of Venice Beach?
ML – I came here on vacation after graduation and never left!
AQC – The Sundry look is super wearable with a spin of sunshine, what is the one piece in your collection that says SO CAL like nothing else?
ML – It’s definitely our sweatpants. Thankfully because of the great weather and lifestyle here, we are able to dress more casual and relaxed, and nothing symbolizes that more than sweatpants.
AQC – What could you teach a west coast girl about a french girls j’ne c’est quoi?
ML – It’s all about attitude, don’t just LOOK more effortless, BE more effortless.
AQC – What’s your uniform? One could say that’s got Leblan’s name all over it?
ML – I usually wear some great vintage jeans, a white t shirt, a navy cashmere v-neck sweater, and white sneakers.
Tan or Tatoo?
Pressed Juice or Espresso Press?
Vanquish or VW van?
Board: short or long?
Baguette or Banana?
Baguette –but I love seasonal fresh fruit, bananas just aren’t my favorite.
