A London Girl Touches Down in LA
By Sophie Coleridge
Regardless of whether or not one has actually stepped foot in LA – the ‘City of Angels’ is already firmly engrained in the imagination. A fantasy place of yoga-pant wearing, fitness buff flexing, quinoa salad munching, palm trees a ‘sprawling mass of consumerist fun – how can one not instantly visualize a land where the sky is always blue, its inhabitants teeth whiter than white.
The set to chick flick moguls ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘Clueless’ – Rodeo, Melrose and Sunset already feel like roads you’ve actually walked down before.
When this Brit did indeed arrive, apart from being faced with the fact that nobody actually walks anywhere at all – I was pleased that my LA zeitgeist was not just a feature of movie sets and heavily filtered faux instagram accounts; they are of course living and breathing aspects of normal every day LA life.
And as I unturned new stones each day – it was a privilege to wear Max Studio clothes – LA being Leon Max / Max Studio headquarters. Here is a small snapshot of my time, curated by Leon Max.
