My Rebellious Princess collection is designed for feisty ladies. I was inspired by the Indian poet-princess Mirabai and her resistance against the chains of patriarchy. A true feminist avant la lettre, this sixteenth century rebel refused to be tamed by the male-dominated traditions of her time. No man or custom could detain her. Mirabai lived by her own rules. With this collection I am dressing you in Mirabai’s rebellion. The design is adorned with ribbons of empowerment dipped in two sturdy tints inspired on the colour palette of chakras: rosy red for embracing your sensuality and blue for listening to your own voice. Wear my Rebellious Princess to start your own female revolution!

Between king and QUEEN

Who is Tasya van Ree? The mysterious girl in the big black hat has been fascinating art connoisseurs and fashion lovers alike since she burst onto the scene with her stunning black-and-white photographs of celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez and (one-time lover) Amber Heard. I asked the Hawaiian-born visual artist of Dutch-Japanese ancestry (41) about her art and soul. “Between both King and Queen is where I exist.”

Sara Mearns (31) is New York City Ballet’s boldest ballerina. A passionate, intense dancer, she started dancing at 3 and starred in Swan Lake when she was only 19. But instead of resting on her laurels, Sara has kept challenging herself with daring projects, from a collaboration with hip-hop dancers to a leading role in a Broadway show. I talked with the fierce Swan Queen about sacrifices, body confidence, and how to turn pain into gain. “I’m not the typical skinny, tall, long-neck kind of ballerina.”
