No one defines “cool girl” quite as perfectly as Sophie Lopez. This pint-sized Croydon girl oozes flair and personality and frankly every outfit we see her in brings us joy and inspiration. You definitely know her work in styling, most prominently seen in her many years of dressing close friend and client Kate Hudson. What most of you don’t get to see is Sophie’s own daily outfits – her grabbing a coffee or running around showrooms in just the coolest mix of perfectly proportional prints, colors and style. We have a colossal girl crush on Sophie and her colorful, playful and crazy cool fashion and could not be more honored to have her as our first Style feature.
Do yourselves a favor and start following her on IG for some major style inspiration and mood boosters STAT.
