In Bed with – A carefully curated lifestyle and identifiable by signature social posts. Meet Polish designer and minimalist @Maria.Kubieniec
What is it about minimalism that you adore?
"I'm a graphic designer obsessed with minimalism since almost a decade. I believe that the most important things are really simple, even if designing those isn't so. I'm totally into Picasso's sketches. His strokes truly are everything! I also like collecting nice stuff, though I do care about what it is. Therefore I'm not going crazy when it comes to sales. I'm looking for the items with passion and endurance. Minimalism for me is a way of living. After decluttering my apartment there is a space to focus on decluttering my habits and thoughts."
Tell us about your morning ritual…
"I'm not a morning person, really. I work a lot and I definitely prefer to work at night. During the day I have a lot on my plate. That's why my favorite ritual is making to-do lists. Planning helps me to remain productive. I also really love to sip a cup of warm tea in the morning! Especially green tea with mint. It wakes me up better then coffee (sorry!)."
Is there a stand out piece from the AWP SS/16 collection?
"My favorite is definitely the Silver Chevron Ring. I love its simple but truculent shape. I wear it with oversized, Japanese-style top. Among necklaces, I chose Silver Bar Necklace which perfect match with my long white shirt. These are beautiful go-to women's jewellery. It helps that I love design led jewellery."
How do you select your outfit for the day ahead?
"My everyday outfit really depends on my mood and fashion trends. My wardrobe could tell a lot about me, actually. Most of my clothes are comfortable pieces. It is very important to me not to spend too much time to figure out what to wear. I prefer shopping with intention, which guarantees everything fits together."
If you could choose a city to work on a street based fashion shoot, which would you choose?
"It would be Copenhagen for sure! I'm in love with this city full of white, beautiful facades, fancy cafes, and great design at every corner. Women's fashion in this city is just stunning.But if you're planning shooting in Copenhagen, be prepared for a strong winds everytime, everywhere!!!"
