Suki Waterhouse felt as though she was creating a “baby” when working on her new accessories line.
The British model has teamed up with her close friend and social media star, Poppy Jamie, to produce Pop & Suki; a range featuring pieces like handbags, glasses cases and jewelry. Suki, 24, loved being hands-on throughout the design process and views the finished items almost like her offspring.
“It's like creating a baby!” she gushed to WhoWhatWear. “New and exciting things are always happening. Recently, the shoots have been a lot of fun. I've spent a long time being part of other people's shoots, and now it's our shoot! My inner control freak enjoys that.”
As for her favorite thing in the line Suki names the Shopper Tote, because she can fit everything she needs for the day in there and carry it around with ease.
It seems this venture was a long time coming for the pair as Suki admits she and Poppy had discussed the project years before meeting their co-founder Leo Segal, who helped them through the “nitty gritty” path to starting the brand.
“Any girls' girl who celebrates her friends and who is smart and witty but doesn't take herself too seriously,” Poppy smiled when asked who can embody the Pop & Suki girl.
“A girl on a mission. She's got places to be and things to do!” Suki chimed in.
The Burberry beauty launched the line in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (02Nov16), where she was joined by her Jonathan co-star Ansel Elgort. Suki looked cute in a dress with white straps and a pink tulle skirt, while the actor went for a laidback ensemble in white sneakers, jeans and a bomber jacket with a cap to complete.
