  • UO Interviews Monochromatic Dressing with Anabella Anger
    More info
    Spend a day with architecture student Anabella Anger, who took some of our new favorite monochromatic looks for a spin during a day in the life in Portland, OR Photos by Alexis J. Clemens You moved to Portland one year ago from Florida by way of Puerto Rico — can you fill in the gaps for us a bit: Why Portland? How has your experience been so far? I’ve never been one to stay put in one place for too long. I had been living in South Florida for a little while, and needed a change of pace. It was also a plus that I’d be escaping the humidity. Coming here was a spur of the moment decision — I didn’t know anyone here when I moved, but now things are finally starting to flourish! Portland has been delightful. The people here are beautiful and expressive. After a month of being here, I landed my first gig as a model; aside from that, I co-own a photo booth business named Scarlet’s Photo Booth. I have gotten the opportunity to attend really amazing events. Just this past weekend, I worked a wedding that had a live punk/surf-rock band playing, and everyone was dressed as if they were in London during the 60s! I felt like I entered a time capsule. So I’d say Portland has been treating me well, and I can’t wait to see what else is in store. Above: Icy purple satin slip dress and Jeffrey Campbell mules You grew up in an artistic, creative family — how has this influenced your path so far? My family has had such a grand impact on my life. My father was a neon artist in Miami back in the Art Deco movement, so as a kid growing up my house always had some neon fixtures and Art Deco aesthetic. He also used to take me to lots of concerts, my first being the B-52s. My mother, on the other hand, has been my main creative influence. She started off as a fashion designer in Puerto Rico, then studied interior design, then transitioned to owning her own fashion and jewelry store in coconut grove back in the 90s. She now owns a music school in South Florida with my stepdad, to whom I owe my music taste and love of skate and surf culture. My mom introduced me to interior design at a young age, always letting me curate my bedrooms and introducing me to enormous encyclopedias of artists. Above: Lucca yellow tie-front top You are now a student of architecture: what other architects, designers, or artists most inspire? For what reasons? My favorite architect of all time is Antti Lovag. His color palette and design choices resonate with me more than any other artist I’ve discovered. Some other artists that inspire me are Anja Niemi and Eric Landon. What leads me to admire an artist is how passionate they are about their craft and how their passion is reflected in their work. I can spend hours on Instagram watching Eric Landon create his pieces, flipping through architecture books at Powell’s, and analyzing images from Anja Niemi. What are some of your favorite buildings? Palais Bulles Cannes France - Antti Lovag Amangiri - Wendell Burnette Hix Island House - John Hix Lonely Ponsonby - Rufus Knight & Steve Ferguson La Muralla Roja - Ricardo Bofill With these monochrome looks in mind, what artists/designers/creatives’ use of color do you most admire? Oroma Elewa's use of color is exquisite. The combination of tones between her wardrobe and the natural clay surroundings is beautiful to me. Venetia Scott’s “Young luxury” overall mood and use of color is lovely. I am fond of all white, creme, grey, and muted tones. A short film that exemplified this color scheme is one that I was fortunate enough to be featured in: “ Ascendant” by Leah Rebecca Brown. Leah is a marvelous director! What are five other things you are currently into? 1. We recently purchased/Invested in a 1986 Toyota Van, so I’ve been obsessing over remodeling the interior. 2. I’ve been vegetarian for some time, but lately I’ve been trying more of a vegan diet, which has been splendid. My skin is thanking me! 3. 'Stranger Things' on Netflix 4. Palo Santo 5.
