Anine Bing – exudes what you call ‘off duty’ style. Her signature look encapsulates a blogger trend for ‘that effortless thrown together look’. Originally from Denmark the LA based Anine has a seriously impressive cv. Former model/singer/life-style blogger, she is now the designer of her own eponymous line. Launched in 2012 her label has attracted an impressive 250k instagram following. We chat to Anine exclusively on LA style and vintage.
YOU ARE ORIGINALLY FROM DENMARK BUT NOW LIVING IN LA, HOW DO THE TWO STYLES COMPARE?
The Scandinavian style is simple with straight lines, where I find the LA style to be more rock bohemian with a softer touch. I love mixing both styles together. It creates an interesting look.
IS WEARING VINTAGE A BIG PART OF YOUR DAILY LOOK?
Yes. I am obsessed with flea markets and love finding old dresses, t shirts and sunglasses and beautiful things for my home. I am also a big fan of vintage Chanel bags. So yes.
OUT OF YOUR ANINE BING LINE – WHICH PIECES WOULD YOU SAY WOULD BE A FUTURE VINTAGE?
The gold studded boots for sure and some of the leather jackets.
WHAT’S YOUR MOST TREASURED VINTAGE PIECE AND WHY?
I got a beautiful Chanel bag from my husband for my birthday, it must be that one. And I am also obsessed with my new yellow Chanel bag from Vintage Heirloom.
HERE AT VINTAGE HEIRLOOM, WE LOVE UNIQUE VINTAGE PIECES AND THE IDEA OF PASSING VINTAGE ON. WHAT KEY PIECES WOULD YOU PASS ON TO YOUR DAUGHTER BIANCA?
I have a beautiful vintage gold Rolex day date that is very special to me. All my Chanel bags. She is a lucky girl!! My collection will be even bigger when she is old enough to get my bags, so I hope she will take good care of them. I also have some amazing jewellery I will pass on to her later in life.
YOU JUST RECEIVED A VINTAGE CHANEL BAG FROM VINTAGE HEIRLOOM, WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THIS PIECE?
I fell in love with the color. Normally I wear black and really mellow colors – but this bright yellow made me fall in love right away. It makes any outfit look good.
IF YOU WEREN’T BEING ANINE BING, YOU WOULD BE?
Bianca Bing. Haha. my daughter is the funniest person and I think she has a great and exciting life ahead of her.
