a fashionable life

A FASHIONABLE LIFE WHEN ALEXANDRA de Royere first entered the fashion world, she was skeptical. “I always thought fashion would not be enough for me,” says the former Goldman Sachs financial analyst. Even so, de Royere has forged a bold path in the sustainable luxury market since taking the reins as CEO and creative director of the Buenos Aires–based handbag brand Solantu in 2016, fusing traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design. Made in collaboration with local artisans, the caiman-skin bags, now carried at Moda Operandi and Harvey Nichols, feature jewellike clasps made from Argentinean materials like Patagonian wood and Andean onyx. De Royere works out of the headquarters of Grupo Insud, Solantu’s parent company, an early-19th-century space marked by vaulted ceilings and artwork by Anselm Kiefer. Growing up in Paris in the ’70s,…

Eclectic, fun, and always colorful—that’s my summer style in five words. I try to create an effortless, understated look, but the reality is, I’ve tried very hard to pull it off. One of my personal style icons is Talitha Getty. She had this extravagant eclecticism about her with her signature Moroccan caftans and layers of costume jewelry. She made it all look so cool and modern. I also love Brooke Shields in The Blue Lagoon. Ruffled cotton voile dresses with lace and frills? So gorgeous! I don’t live by any hardand-fast rules of style. For me, fashion is about having fun and feeling comfortable and confident. What I would say, though, is that if what you’re wearing doesn’t feel comfortable, it probably doesn’t look it either. A ditzy floral maxidress and espadrilles are summer favorites. A grosgrain-trimmed fedora…

My summer style is effortless and undone. I’m usually in white and preferably barefoot. I love my Louis Vuitton tote. Solid & Striped bikinis, K. Jacques sandals, big gold hoops from Jennifer Fisher, turbans, and a collection of sarongs I’ve picked up from various places all over the world are some of my other seasonal staples. I’ve traveled to the Caribbean island of Bequia with my family many times since I was a child. I have so many special memories, from dancing all night to a steel drum band at the weekly “jump up” party, to exploring the ruins of the Moonhole settlement at the edge of the island. Snorkeling alongside dozens of sea turtles from Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary is something I’ll never forget. The owner, Orton “Brother” King, raises baby sea…
