Margaret Zhang for Kookai
WWW: What are your three favourite trends for autumn?
SS: Layering and oversized knits and jumpers, lots of leather and suede, off the shoulder dresses, and tops that are both feminine and sexy.
WWW: What are your favourite pieces from the collection and how are you styling them?
SS: The signature Kookai fedora… I’d wear it every day in autumn with dresses or jeans, paired back with a leather biker jacket. Speaking of a leather biker jacket, it’s also one of my favourite pieces. There’s also a beautiful red dress that I have nicknamed the ‘Sampaio’. The colour is really amazing, it has detail around the neck that looks like a choker and the cut is very flattering—it hugs your body in all the right places. It’s such a statement in itself that I would pair it back with simple nude or black pumps.
WWW: What have you learnt from working with the world’s best stylists?
SS: Keep it simple and don’t over accessorise—and then your outfit will ooze elegance.
WWW: What is your #1 styling trick to take your look from day to night?
SS: Put on a red lip and swap flats for high heels. Always.
WWW: What do you know and love about Australian style?
SS: It’s really cool, and reflective of your relaxed culture. We were talking about Miranda Kerr’s style today and she is someone whose style I really admire. She always looks effortless and pulled-together, fashionable, and fun.
