SISJ – MY INTERVIEW WITH SARAH ELLEN FOR SUPRE > By Sarah Jane Young & Jessica OConnell
Supré is back with a stylish vengeance and showcasing their all-new look. Leading the way is their ‘Beauty from Brooklyn’ and ‘Haute Military ‘trends, as well as their new concept stores (they are super funky!). Last Friday myself and Jess had the pleasure of meeting social media sensation and all-round babe, Sarah Ellen, at the new-look Highpoint Supré store. We spent the afternoon nibbling on lollies, gossiping and planning our summer wardrobes! Enjoy x
JESS’S FASHION WRAP-UP: The start of a new year is exciting for many reasons, but most importantly it is the start of a new you! And what better way to unleash that new you than with a few additional pieces added to your wardrobe?! And if the preview collection was anything to go by, then Supré is where you are going to want to be!
Stylish, affordable and completely on point, the new look Supré has something for you. Gone are the bodycon tops, and in their places are gorgeous flowy floral tops, perfectly draped printed kimonos and adorable denim cut-offs in every colour you could imagine. No matter what the occasion, Supré have the perfect summer look for you. The fabrics feel amazing (even the basics!) and the added details such as fringing are a nice little touch and allow you to add your personal style to each look. The exclusive pieces include a stunning leather jacket complete with fancy faux-fur detailing – we all need a little glam rock in our wardrobes! That’s the thing I love about the upcoming Supré collection; they have flawlessly combined the gorgeous pretty pastel pieces with some edgier fabrics and looks. The fur vest perfectly compliments the ripped denim shorts and the leather jacket looks completely on-trend with the stunning floral maxi dress and knitted tops. The collection is easy-to-wear and extremely versatile – perfect for the savvy shopper in all of us!
SISJ’S INTERVIEW WITH SARAH ELLEN >
Before we talk shop, let’s start with a little get-to-know you! Tell us about yourself: I am sixteen years old (nearly 17!) and I just love chocolate, yoga and puppies! I still live with my family in Sydney where I grew up. As well as living with my family I also have two cats and my new and gorgeous puppy, Stella! I also have a new blog launching soon called ‘Perks of Her’ which will cover fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle. I cannot wait!
Growing up and throughout your career so far, who has been your main mentor and why? I would have to say in terms of my career, my photographer David. He has always kept me humble and taught me so much along the way. His advice has helped me grow professionally and he’s always just a great support for me. I also have to say my amazing make-up artist. Every session we have together she just brings me back down to earth and I am so grateful for our relationship.
To date, what is your absolute career highlight and what has been your personal highlight? My professional highlight so far is being the face of the new-look Supre. It’s such an exciting time for me watching the team and brand grow and being part of that. I would say my personal highlight was MBFF – it was so cool getting to meet some of Australia’s leading bloggers and I just loved creating a new-look every day!
Tell us about your collaboration with Supre? Who is the Supre girl and how do you reflect the brand? I feel with the new direction that Supre are going I am a great fit. I am fashion forward, always on the lookout for new trends, I love the perfect Instagram moment (as does the Supre girl!), haha. She can be cool, dressy and quirky when it comes to fashion so I think we are the perfect fit. It’s also so, so cool to do the in-store appearances – I always have so much fun meeting my fans.
With a ridiculously large following (congrats by the way!) and professional partnerships like Supre, what would you say is the main message you want to convey to your audiences? I would say that growing up for me personally, it was hard to be content in my own skin at times. I was always comparing myself to other models and girls in the magazines so I just want my main message to be, be happy in your own skin. When you are happy in your own skin it’s a true kind of happiness and I wish that for all my followers.
What are your three summer wardrobe staples from Supre this season? I absolutely LOVE a kimono for summer, pastel colours and a cute pair of cut-off shorts! I just love the Supre shorts – they do them better than anyone else.
Who is your ultimate girl crush and why? It would have to be Cara Delevingne. She’s hilarious, she’s gorgeous and she’s also an actress, which I recently found out. I love how she is her own person and just rocks whatever she’s doing. She is inspiring to me as a young model.
