Carpe fuckin diem.
When I was 6 years old I visited England for the first time and stayed the summer in Forrest Hill, London. We traded houses with another family, and spent 8 weeks exploring England. It was that summer than I became a full-blown Anglophile & was completely obsessed with Europe in general. The fashion, attitude & grit shaped me as a person from then on.
Flash forward ten years: I’m getting ready to go to college & am completely obsessed with the Arctic Monkeys, Brian Duffy’s badass 60s photography, Allison Mosshart, David Bowie’s mismatched eyeballs, Hedi Slimane back when he was doing Dior Homme, you know.. I even have an Alexa Chung drawing tattooed on my thigh.
You know I tried to get into every university in England, but it wasn’t meant to be. But it’s chill, this is so much more than I ever could have hoped for. I know we’re launching in all of Europe today, but England has had my heart for the entirety of my conscious life- and now you really do have a piece of my heart. Lmfao, cheezy, but it’s honestly true.
Words can’t begin to describe how much this means to me. More than anything, I just wanted to give you guys a little glimpse into my life & say thank you (a million times) for following along with Freck for the last couple of years while we got ready for today.
At 9AM BST today, Freck will be available for sale exclusively through Beauty Bay. Don’t miss out bbs.
