Linda Farrow x Alessandra Ambrosio

To celebrate our collaboration with Alessandra Ambrosio, we sat down with the supermodel for a question and answer

How did you become involved with Linda Farrow?
I have been wearing Linda Farrow pieces for so long and one of my first splurges on an luxury item was Linda Farrow sunglasses that I still have until this day.  I have been a fan of the brand for a long time and when I met Simon we thought it would be great to do a collaboration. 

Please tell us about the frames you designed...
I worked on two amazing classic designs that you can wear for so many different occasions.  One is more of a retro cat eye style and the other is a modern twist on the aviator sunglasses. 

Your job takes you on the road, where you chronicle your travels through Instagram. Do you tailor your fashion and beauty to the location or city you are in?
Often I have to go from one climate to another so I always bring a cozy cashmere sweater when going to cold places, and also some fun flowy dresses and my swimwear collection if I am going to warm places. 

What destination has generated the most interest?
I loved going to Bora Bora with my family as it was so peaceful but there is so much to do.  We really enjoyed swimming with the sharks and sting rays. 

Where is your favourite place in the world?
That is a tough one as there are so many but if I had to pick it would be a tie between Los Angeles and Florianopolis as those are home. 

Is there something you will not travel without?
My Linda Farrow sunglasses and a pillow

Do you have a favourite social media outlet?

What is it you enjoy most about working with brands?
I love being creative and working with different brands as we get to play around and create amazing images and also tell a story. 

What is currently your favourite thing to do in your spare time?
I love to spend all of my free time outdoors with my kids and family.   We like going on hikes, playing beach volleyball or just riding our bicycles by the beach.
You have worked with many beauty brands and experts, what is the most valuable piece of beauty advice you have been given?
Make sure to take care of yourself from inside out.  Sleep well, hydrate and make sure to nourish your body properly.

Do you come from a fashionable family?
I would like to think so.  My Godmother was the best seamstress in our town and everyone came to get their clothes made by her. 

How would you describe your look, and has anyone ever summed- up your personal style perfectly?
I would say my look is mix of rock’n’roll, classic with a touch of boho

You receive a lot of support from your followers, what is your most rewarding piece of feedback you have been given?
Stay who you are.  It is so amazing to know that people appreciate you for who you are.
