In her Closet: A Print Designer's Pad

Laura is like the girl that everyone wants to know. She works as a print designer, moonlights as an aspiring rapper on weekends, and writes on her blog, noeud noir. If you're lucky, you can catch her performing live at bars on St. Laurent.

We first met at "The Corporation" while working closely on print repeats, embroidery placements and re-colorations of patterns. I visited her desk a lot as we worked on about 8-12 prints each season.

Her apartment is filled with purple, gold and black accents, very much the same palette as everything in her wardrobe. She has a treasured collection of vintage cameras passed on from her father who was a tailor and a professional photographer. He has left her with some incredible heirlooms, a vintage Rolleiflex and Rapid Omega that appear to be still functional. And sometimes her camera bag functions as her purse.

We took her bike out for a spin, but it was pretty windy outside and her brightly colored Marimekko print dress didn't exactly keep her warm. It did look good though.

  12. I am kind of envious of those 2 cameras eventhough I also own a rolleiflex, but I guess this is something you get addicted :D. I like the vintage atmosphere and yet modern atmosphere of her closet :). Thanks to share it!
