Solomon | Winter
This Style Story is not only about one but two inspiring, gorgeous and successful young women: Birte Solomon and Bianca Winter.
In spring 2015 Bianca and Birte founded their company SOLOMON | WINTER and brought all their experiences and passion for art buying, casting and photo production together.
I met the two in their new office in Hamburg and talked about fashion mistakes, beauty and their love for beautiful things. The interview was a blast.
Birte and Bianca have so much humor despite their long working hours. (And I really would like to have seen Bianca in her tribal tattoo t-shirt!)
1. Why is this top your favorite from 7 Chic Avenue?
Bianca: It gives me the special chic in every situation. Combined with used blue jeans it is just cool chic. Combined with a pencilskirt I feel comfortable and still me, meeting a client. It is furthermore timeless chic.
Birte: It is a sophisticated and timeless piece.
