Pip Edwards is one of Australia’s most recognisable stylists. A regular fixture on the social pages and at Fashion Week, she’s been working in the local fashion industry since before Ksubi was known as Tsubi. She’s been setting trends since well, forever. While some are still toying with the idea of balayage, Pip practically invented it six years ago.
After a long stint as accessories designer at sass & bide, Pip is currently the Designer Director at General Pants Co. She’s also a designer and creative consultant with DLM, one of Australia’s leading creative agencies, and mum to eight-year-old Justice Maximus.
We caught up with her at the launch of Cheap Monday’s new eyewear range to ask how she would spend her perfect Sunday.
What are you doing?
I wake up, I grab a coffee and then do the Bondi to Bronte walk with my girlfriends. We solve the world’s problems, and maybe create some more. Then I’ll go grab my son and we’ll go down to the skate park. Being so busy I never get to hang around home, so I just like being in my activewear looking like I’ve been training, but I’m really just comfortable.
What are you drinking?
Skim mocha with one sugar from Sonoma in Bondi.
What are you listening to?
I’ve been pumping out Daft Punk's ‘Instant Crush,’ the Julian Casablancas song from their new album, but I’ve gone back to a bit of Hot Chip, ‘Flutes’ is a favourite. My all time on rotation is Sia ‘Buttons’ but the CSS remix, it’s pretty much those three songs all the time. I probably play 'Instant Crush' 20 times in a row, and that helps me zone out when I’m walking or soft sand running on the beach.
What are you wearing?
I generally put on my activewear because that’s just the easiest. I like adidas and 2XU compression tights. I’ve just switched over from Nike to adidas trainers, and I can tell you how different the functionality and comfort is, it’s crazy. I’ll then wear a designer spray jacket or something over the top to elevate it from just gym gear.
