Take a look inside the life of trend-setting globe-trotter Maja Malnar:
1. Describe your personal style in 5 words.
Sporty but elegant, classy but casual.
2. What is your first fashion memory?
My ex boyfriend was a big fashion fanatic, while I was still completely new to this world. So
he often laughed at my outfits, which forced me to start being interested in fashion.
Therefore he tought me so many things, introduced me to the real fashion world, fashion
weeks and runway shows. And actually got me a bit addicted...
3. Name your top 3 style icons.
I really love Olivia Palermo. And of course Victoria Beckham and Alexa Chung.
4. What’s your favorite summer trend and what trend do you hope fades away?
Loving the little fringe hem on the bottom of jeans.
5. What’s your favorite piece from the Christina Karin Spring/Summer 16 Collection and how would you style it?
My absolute fave piece is the leather colorblock black and white cape jacket which I'm obsessed with. It's such a nice basic but staple piece that you can literally wear with everything. I love black and white and this is perfect chic.
6. What’s in your bag right now? From beauty essentials to tic tacs.
I am on a plane from LA to London, so I love to have EVERYTHING with me, especially when I fly. My phone, charger, computer, wallet, passport, vitamins, concealer, face cream, hand
cream, chewing gums, hand sanitizer, green tea, and a notebook.
7. W hat’s your vice: shoes, bags, or jewelry?
I have my periods. First it was shoes, second were handbags, and now i am kind of back to
shoes and jewelry as well.
8. If you could time travel, which fashion era would you go to and why?
Probably to baroque or something like that to see women constantly wearing the big gowns
and enormous dresses. I think its really inspiring how they were wearing them constantly, while I
can see myself now - the happiest in my sweatpants off the camera
9. What is your ideal summer getaway/destination?
