What is one travel/destination highlight that your work has given you?
MS: We have literally traveled the world together! That’s another reason why we are such a dream team. There’s nothing cooler than working with your best friend and seeing all these beautiful places. Hawaii was my personal favorite.
DA: Shooting Maya for a cover story for one of our favorite German Magazines, BLONDE, in Tokyo was a major highlight. And so much fun! She made me try fresh oysters at the fish market—I might not have forgiven her yet…
MS: [Laughs]. I haven’t given up yet. Let’s go back and change your mind.
What is your favourite pic from the shoot with us and why?
DA: I really love the shots at the skatepark. Maya’s ultra-feminine look mixed with the skaters in the background is 100% my own aesthetic.
MS: What I loved most about this shoot is that I got to become a bit of a different character. I was really feeling the rebellious vibe of the boots in this collection, so we decided to go a bit more edgy with the makeup and hair. My favorite shot is the one in the telephone booth, where I’m being all provocative.
The western trend is big in footwear this season. How do you plan on wearing it?
DA: I love the trend, but would dress it down with vintage Levi’s, a t-shirt and hoops.
MS: Cowboy boots might just be my favourite trend this season! I love them paired with a feminine dress or denim. And, even the ankle boot with a suit can look
