MEET ALLISON BEALE

Meet the Marketing Director of our favourite US lingerie chain Journelle – Allison Beale. Allison has been a supporter of the brand since day one and always a massive inspiration to us!

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m into wine, food, lingerie and music…in that order. I’m a New Yorker by way of North Carolina, lover of the beach, spontaneous dance parties, late night chats and live music. Mom to Frank the cat. I’ve been in fashion or lingerie PR for as long as I can remember. And while I live for lovely lacy things, I would gladly cheat on lingerie with food + wine 😉
Récemment mis à jour3Who’s your style crush?
Lauren Hutton. She just has this ease and elegance to her style – the clothes she wears, how she moves in them, the pairing of the unexpected. You can tell she’s comfortable in her own skin and dresses to accentuate that.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
My grandmother told me to always smile when I answer the phone because the people on the other end of the line would hear it in my voice.

Top 3 favourite places in NYC.
There are too many to name only three! Here goes…Balthazar is perfect just about any time of the day. I go every Monday morning for a cappuccino and almond croissant and I’ve celebrated my birthday there the last seven years. Dell’anima, a cozy little nook in the west village is my favorite spot for pasta. It means “of the soul” and the bolognese is to die for, plus they have a killer wine list. I shop the Union Square Greenmarket 2-3 times a week. Wednesday mornings are the absolute best.

On a Saturday night we would find you… at dinner with friends. Sometimes cooking it for them.

What’s your personal favorite piece from Kriss’s collections and why?

The Kristel Suspender top in black – it’s a wardrobe staple for me. It’s both thoughtfully sexy and approachable – a classic.

Tell us a little bit about your personal style.
My personal style would be super simple. Mostly black, sometimes a few colours – grey/white (haha!), jeans, leather jacket. Chill, tomboyish, chic.
From time to time I love to go funky, like wear crazy printed t-shirts, jeans, heels and red lips. Above all, I want to feel comfortable in my clothes and I always dress according to my mood. Dressing up for me is expressing myself.

If you weren’t a model, you would be …
… a unicorn.

Favourite travel destination?
Definitely NYC. I just love love looooove this city! But places where I haven’t been and I would love to see are in South America – Mexico, Brazil, Peru. And also Capetown in South Africa. The world is my playground.

On a Saturday evening we would most probably find you …
Probably not at home, haha! Out with friends more likely – partying, bowling, at the cinema, you name it. Staying in front of the TV in my pajamas eating popcorn is not like me at all, I get inspired by people.

What´s your favourite piece from the Kriss Soonik collections? Why?
My favorite piece, hmmm, that’s a tough one. Kriss has so many amazing pieces, starting with bras and tops to gorgeous robes. I would love to wear them all, it’s not easy to pick out just one. But if I have to, I would say my black lace top – it’s super sexy but at the same time elegant.

Words to live by?
Do what makes you happy and what you are passionate about. You live once, so make it count. If you have a dream, work towards it. Nothing is impossible. Love deeply from your heart and travel as much and far as you can ☺
