Who are they, you ask? They both look like models and yet they’re not! She is Veronika Heilbrunner, style editor for the luxury goods eboutique Mytheresa. He is Justin O’Shea, the buying director for Mytheresa. Hmmm…I wonder if they met at work? What better way to advertise your eboutique than by hiring a fashionista power couple! I wonder who has the bigger closet?
Justin: “As much as I like to take Veronika shopping, I don’t like to shop with anyone when it comes to my closet. I do love seeing her wearing my clothes though, it’s that age-old thing of waking up and seeing your girl in your button-down shirt. She wears some of my Balenciaga coats and it’s annoying because sometimes she looks cooler in them than I do.”
Veronika: “As a fashion editor, I gravitate towards the exciting statement pieces, and like many women my tastes tend to be broad-ranging. Often though, the things that I like don’t necessarily suit me. My boyfriend Justin is always very honest with me, and he’ll tell me when something doesn’t look flattering even when I’m very attached to a certain look. He’s helped me figure out that the simpler pieces look best given my height, and that can be as basic as a black tee and black pants.
Justin is very particular about clothes, but of course that comes with the job. I love all his perfectly tailored suits and ties, and often I borrow his coats, which comes in handy when we’re traveling. He has this dark blue Balenciaga coat which is amazing and a little oversize on me. In fact there have been times that we’ve coordinated accidentally, and we’ll have to change! To be honest I love him best dressed simply, too, in a tee and jeans.”
