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.
