Who would have thought that a change in season, a sudden desire to explore, and a hunger for peace would bring me to my favourite secret little paradise in Southern California? I was driving on a winding mountain road, in absolute awe of the beauty in geography, when I decided to pull over to a place namely, “Malibu Creek State Park”. Imagine: rolling hills, mountains in the background, absolute silence, a creek you have to cross barefoot, wild flowers, and absolutely zero civilization. Modern society and it’s social structures begin to feel like something that was back then, and most importantly, in moments surrounded by such a perfect natural environment, you begin to value genuine things in life. They say, “anything you can lose is not really yours”. If we can lose money, it’s never really ours. If we can lose our job, it’s really not ours. We can’t lose ourselves, we can’t suddenly lose the beautiful world we live in. I think it’s important to spend time alone in nature, to let your mind and feet wander, to be a kid again.
Proceeding the day I discovered this place, I drove out here every day. That means 2 hours in LA traffic every day… but it was worth it.

What’s even more magical than the turquoise waters, velvet sand, and dark rainclouds that so instinctually gather over the highest peaks of the mountains? The vibrations of the land; the energy. Hawaii was a place I’ll never forget. It inspired me to live a life that is colourful, young and forgiving, adventurous; a life that knows no schedule and no such thing as the 24 hour clock. I’ll never forget waking up in Kauai, skateboarding over to a magical little beach named “Queens Bath”, hiking through a muddy rainforest in my silk dress to get there, and jumping off the cliff into the ocean. Those moments when you feel infinitely alive, are the moments that make life worth living. When Christian Louboutin released a collection named “Hawaii Kawaii” at Bergdorf Goodman, it could not have made me smile any brighter. Fashion that plays a tropical dance filled with wanderlust is one that I flow congruently with.
