It’s not enough that Suki Waterhouse has dominated the modelling industry and made a brave foray into the acting world (see her debut role in Love, Rosie in October) - now, the 22-year-old also has the title of fashion designer under her slim Burberry belt.
 
Suki has designed a capsule collection for Italian shoe brand, Superga (for which she also the face of s/s 2014).
 
We grabbed five minutes with her to get the lowdown…

 
ELLE: What references did you use when designing your collection for Superga?
 
SW: I was in Paris at the time and spent a lot of time walking around with my eyes extra peeled. Anything from shop windows to tablecloths. In the end, I went for something bold and girlish.
 
ELLE: Did you enjoy the process?
 
SW: Yes! I need to learn to draw better, though.
 
ELLE: Which pair are your favourite?
 
SW: My favourites are the red and purple - they feel powerful and feisty to me!
 
ELLE: If you could give a pair to anyone, who would you choose?
 
SW: Lou Doillon.
 
ELLE: What are you reading at the moment?
 
SW: The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra and A Life by Elia Kazan.
 
ELLE: What was the last film you watched and loved?
 
SW: Raging Bull.
 
ELLE: Which three songs are on your summer playlist?
 
SW: Factory by Martha Wainwright, Dancing in the Moonlight by Thin Lizzy and One Call Away by Chingy. 

The Suki x Superga collection will be available online and in stores from the end of August 2014.
