The Gift Guide

We met up with 27 year old Amsterdam stylist and model, Sofie, on a crisp winter day in Amsterdam. Her background in fashion, from her studies in both Denmark and The Netherlands and several astonishing internships has led her into what she explains herself as, "the beathing heart of fashion" Vogue Magazine. We talk holiday trends, childhood memories and her ultimate Rosefield gifts.

Sofie explains that in the beginning of her career she slowly but surely got the chance to do more styling, from smaller portraits to bigger productions. "After having done this work for a while, I sometimes forget how special my job is and everything I do. But when I for instance travel for work or when I’m on set I realise that I’m so lucky I get to do this for work. I really love my job and I’m happy that I can be creative, tell stories and inspire people with the styling that I do."

In the beginning I was the personal assistant of the editor-in-chief of Vogue. Pretty much like “The devil wears Prada” except my boss was the nicest ever.

What is your favorite trend for the holiday season?

It’s maybe a bit cheesy but I think it’s fun to wear a really good jumper. Not necessarily an ugly Christmas sweater, but just a bit over the top and outrageous like those glittery or big knitted ones. They're just so cosy and comfortable. Otherwise I am a big fan of suiting up for Christmas, so maybe I will go for a nice oversized suit with a bowtie this year.

What is your favorite Rosefield item?

Definitely the gold Boxy xs. It's so petite, timeless, classy and something that I'll still love in 10 years time.

What Rosefield items are you gifting this Holiday season and to whom?

The Moon and Star Necklace. I’m giving this to my friend Madieke who I have been friends with for years. She lives in the south of Holland and therefore we don’t see eachother as often anymore. I want to show her that I really appreciate her even though I might not always be the best friend there is. It’s a bit cheesy, but yeah, it’s for Christmas and it’s the time to be cheesy. I feel the star and moon symbolises us apart, but then always keeping an eye out for each other no matter what.

As we start to round up our talk, Sofie let's us in on one of her shopping secrets. "My advise is to really look at what a person wears and get something personal. That’s what makes a gift special, like the silly story behind the moon and star necklace. I bet my friend will always keep the necklace because of the story behind it."
