BY VERONICA VICCORA
If you're seeking a world of Birkin baskets (occasionally filled with kittens), cottagecore picnics and fabulous European architecture, you've found it. This is the world of Aleksandra, a multi-talented creative with a flair for chic outfits and a the color red. From trench coats to ballet flats, Alex's classic sense of style is one we can all take some inspiration from, so keep reading for her thoughts on playing piano, snake print pants and Albanian writers.
Hi Aleksandra, please introduce your wonderful self!
Hello my name is Aleksandra, Alexa for short. I come from the capital city of Albania which is Tirana. I am 18 years old and a libra.
I started experimenting with fashion at a young age. I would take my mom‘s clothes and put them together to create outfits that looked fantastic in my head. I love to paint and I love to play piano, these are some of my hobbies I think really influenced me throughout the years. Going to museums or theaters was a really big part of my life and I’ve always wanted to share a bit of my life throughout my style.
How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Playful, dreamy , and romantic.
Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?
I think some of my biggest inspirations are probably Brigitte Bardot, Axl Rose and all the rock groups from the 80s and Jane Birkin, the queen of the laid-back cool girl style.
What's the best outfit you've ever worn?
One of my all-time favourite outfits would definitely be a cool vintage blouse with ruffle details, snake print pants and the coolest vintage leather store jacket that goes down to my knees ( I stole that one from my mum but that’s not an important detail). I had gold jewelry stacked up: rings, necklaces, bracelets, whatever you can think of.
To be honest I was really going for that rock chic look.
What's on your wish list right now?
My wish list is full of Vivian Westwood. I’m still trying to get my hands on some vintage Chanel from the 90s.
Who would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?
Oh this is a really tough question because I have lots of actors and singers I would like to have at my table. First off, Jane Birkin as I said. I love her. Next up would be Ville Valo from the band Him. Lily Rose Depp. She looks like a very cool girl to be around and I love her attitude and everything. Anna Karina I always loved her movies and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to really talk to her. And I would love to have an Albanian writer, Dritero Agolli .
What's something you're really proud of right now?
Something that I’m really proud of is actually having a life that younger me would’ve loved and I think I’m making her really proud right now. And I have a project that is coming like in a month or so and I am looking forward to that.
Where else can we find you Aleksandra?
