IN CONVERSATION WITH HARPER & HARLEY

10.06.15

We sat down with Sara from Harper & Harley to discuss everything from her outfit choices for our Summer In The City shoot to the world of blogging and starring on the Fashion Bloggers TV show.

Describe your personal style in three words.

Black, white, grey.

What is your favourite piece of clothing in your wardrobe?

Right now it’s leather trousers - they're my staple year-round piece.

What are your favourite trends this season?

I’m loving jackets that are cinched in at the waist with a belt. They’re a fun play on proportion and flattering on the waist.

Who or what do you look to for inspiration?

My fashion and style inspiration comes from Pinterest. It’s my go to site as everything is in one place and it can easily be refined and curated. For photography I still love flipping through magazines. My favourite photographers are Benny Horne, David Mandleberg, Darren McDonald, Bec Parsons and Jake Terrey.

Which other fashion bloggers do you think are getting it right?

I feel as though we’re reaching a tipping point whereby the bloggers that have been around since the beginning are moving on into different areas of their brand development. Chiara Ferragni’s cover for Vogue Spain blew my mind. I think that she represents the pinnacle of what you can do with a self made brand.

 

What is your favourite piece from the REISS SS15 collection?

The semi sheer black and white T-shirts with horizontal stripes. A dressed up basic is always going to make my wishlist.

How do your outfits from the Summer In The City feature reflect your personal style?

I’ve kept the looks quite minimal and they’re all classics. The looks are great as a whole but the individual pieces are wardrobe staples as well.

What would you consider to be the best shoot or project that you have worked on to date?

I’ve been so lucky to be part of a lot of amazing projects but the one that is changing the landscape of my blogging career is being part of the Fashion Bloggers TV show. Reaching an audience on a global scale is the ultimate goal, and with the show currently being broadcast to over 100 countries it’s an opportunity that I’m so glad I believed in.

Describe your experience filming this show.

I love that I’m constantly pushing myself outside of my comfort zone. TV was never on my agenda, but I believe that when an opportunity presents itself you really have to take advantage of it, even it terrifies you. The best part is sharing the experience with friends. Zanita, Mandy and I have known each other for years and Kate is now part of that family.

Where in the world would you most like to shoot a feature?

I think I would be in my element by all the white walls in Santorini.

To anyone visiting Sydney, what would you consider as a must?

We’re so lucky in Australia as the produce is so fresh and we have lots of amazing restaurants to choose from. My favourites are Fratelli  or Icebergs for lunch and dinner, Chiswick  for dinner, The Grounds in Alexandria for breakfast and lunch and Bread and Circus for lunch.
