專訪 Gary Pepper Girl: 她是不跟從潮流,更愛歷久彌新的國際時尚博主Nicole Warne

HF Crewon September 20, 2014 at 5:46 pm

我與Nicole Warne,有過一面之緣。

對於這個名字,一般人大概不會想到它的主人有著東方的面孔,血統雖是半日本半韓國,但所受的教養和栽培卻來自澳洲領養家庭。鏡頭下的她散發著時尚優雅的氣質;鏡頭後,這種氣質揮之不去,多了的是照片中反映不到的謙和。以模特兒、造型師、形象大使、顧問、創意總監等不同身份與國際潮流品牌合作的Nicole,正是冒起得最快的個人博客「 Gary Pepper Girl 」背後的靈魂。

那天,在 DFS 的「First Class Beauty」美容體驗發佈會上,Nicole Warne以一襲簡潔白色 Josh Goot裝束和Charlotte Olympia 高跟鞋示人,跟我們分享她的旅遊美容時尚心得。

On First Experiences 

Hf: What was your first makeup product?
中:你的第一件化妝品是甚麼?

N: My first make-up product was a mango lip balm by The Body Shop. It was a product my mum always (and still) uses, so I bought one for myself to remind me of her when I was at school.
中:The Body Shop芒果味潤唇膏。那是我媽媽經常而且仍然使用的產品,讀書的時候我會買一瓶給自己,因為那潤唇膏會讓我想起她。

Hf: Which ONE product have you stuck by throughout the years?
中:這麼多年來,有哪一樣產品是你從來都沒有離棄的?

N: My first red lipstick was by Lancôme and I still use it today. They discontinued the original version but the new one is even better. Red lipstick in general is my beauty essential.
中:我的第一支Lancôme紅唇膏,直到現在我仍然使用它。雖然它已經停產了,但新配方比舊的還要好,紅唇膏是我的美容必需品。

Hf: How would you describe your journey from beauty blogger to international style icon?
中:你會怎樣形容你從美容博客到國際時尚icon這個旅程?

N: I still find it confusing to be honest, but it’s incredibly flattering and humbling. I make a conscious effort to wear pieces that are affordable and relatable for my community, so I like mixing high and low pieces that everyone can interpret into their own unique style.
中:說真的,我仍然對這個改變感到困惑,不過這個過程令我感到十分欣喜,更讓我謙卑起來。我喜歡將不同級別的時裝混在一起,這樣的混合比較貼近我的粉絲,就是任何人也能夠根據自己的獨特風格對時尚單品作出不同的演繹。

On Travelling

Hf: What are the three essential beauty items you must bring along with you?
中:有哪三樣產品是你旅遊時必備的?

N: Sunscreen, moisturizer and moisturizer masks – they’re like a travel-friendly mini facial! For me, it’s all about skincare and preserving your glowing skin.
中:防曬、潤膚和保濕面膜──他們就像旅遊版的迷你面部護理!對我而言,美容就是護膚,以及如何保持容光煥發。

On New York Fashion Week

Hf: What are you wearing for New York Fashion Week? You must have a lot to bring with you!
中:你會在紐約時裝周中穿甚麼?你的行李一定很重吧!

N: This season I’m supporting some of my favourite Australian designers, so my suitcase is packed with pieces from Dion Lee , Josh Goot, Karla Spetic and Maticevski . I mix them with international brands I love like Charlotte Olympia, Aquazarra and Mulberry. My outfits are quite simple – New York Fashion Week is more urban whereas Paris Fashion Week is more romantic. I tend to dress to each city as my mood changes from each.
中:今季我會支持我喜歡的澳洲設計師,我的行李箱都充滿來自Dion Lee、Josh Goot、Karla Spetic和Maticevski的單品。我會將這些本土設計與我喜歡的國際品牌融合,如Charlotte Olympia、Aquazarra和Mulberry。我的造型都很簡單──紐約時裝周會傾向都市風,而巴黎時裝周則會穿得較浪漫。在不同的城市,我會根據自己心情的改變而穿衣。

Hf: What are you expecting this coming Spring?
中:期待著一個怎樣的春季?

N: I’m expecting to see more inspiration from 60’s and 70’s with a mix of femininity or focus on interesting silhouettes. I feel the masculine and sports luxe trends are passing and this spring we’ll see a return to classic and ladylike dressing with a modern edge.
中:我期待更多取自六、七十年代女性的靈感,或以有趣輪廓為焦點。我感覺陽剛味重的運動風熱潮將要逝去,取而代之的是經典而摩登的女性化衣著。

Hf: Any trends that you are dying to try out?
中:有哪些潮流你渴望嘗試?

N: I try not to follow trends as I like to be more timeless. If anything, I’d love to take inspiration from the 60’s trend seen on the runway at Louis Vuitton and Valentino last season, like little mod dresses, collars, round sunglasses and knee high boots. I draw a lot of my inspiration from past eras and how the women wore the clothes and carried themselves.
中:我嘗試不跟從潮流,我比較喜歡歷久彌新。如有的話,我會以去季Louis Vuitton與Valentino時裝展中六十年代的風潮作為我的靈感──摩登短裙、衣領、圓墨鏡和及膝長靴。我常常參照過去的時代,觀察以前的女性是如何穿衣和表達自己。

Hf: Any designers that we should look out for this Spring?
中:今個春季,有哪些設計師我們需要特別留意?

N: Up-and-coming designers Rosie Assoulin and Thakoon were stand outs last season in New York, but we have amazing talent in Australia too like up-and-coming designers Michael Lo Sordo who is constantly winning awards and evolving as a brand quite quickly.
中:新晉設計師Rosie Assoulin和Thakoon於去年紐約時裝周中嶄露頭角,不過我們澳洲的設計師亦表現出眾, Michael Lo Sordo屢獲獎項,迅速冒起成為指日可待的品牌。

On Future

Hf: What do you see yourself and Gary Pepper in five years?
中:五年後的你,和五年後的Gary Pepper,又會是怎樣?

N: I can see many things for the future and hope that I’m based overseas (New York or Paris) with my team and continuing to grow my brand on a global scale. I don’t plan on moving away from blogging entirely, but I know the next 5 years will see Gary Pepper expand beyond the digital world.
中:我對未來充滿異象,我希望自己和我的團隊可以以海外(紐約或巴黎)為根據點,並且繼續拓展Gary Pepper成為國際品牌。我不打算完全離開博客,但我知道在未來五年Gary Pepper將會超越電子世界。
