Anna Feller, model and Albus Lumen, talks about her signature style and fragrance


Do you have a favorite fashion designer?
Lucy Folk, for her jewelry and clothing design, feels nomadic and global. I also like Theophilio, Gimaguas, JW Anderson, Luuda, The Elder Statesman and Moncler.

What is your favorite perfume ?
I wear Le Labo, but not Santal 33. It’s a perfume that no one wears, Tonka 25. My signature perfume is a mix of this and Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Sun Drops.

VSo you remember a favorite outfit you wore as a child?
My mother was obsessed with buying nice clothes for us. She would go to Bonton in Paris and buy all the pretty things – dresses, cardigans and the most expensive shoes. But from the age of six, I was such a tomboy. I had older brothers and grew up snowboarding and at the skate park. That’s probably where my love of streetwear comes from, but always with a feminine twist.

And your worst fashion mistake?
I don’t think of fashion like that; It’s from the past.

Birkenstocks by Proenza Schouler are high on Anna's wish list.

What was your first fashion moment?
I do not have it yet.

What’s at the top of your fashion wishlist?
A Bottega Veneta purple knit dress – I would wear it unbuttoned with a hi-vis swim top. Also, Proenza Schouler Birkenstocks cream and a Lucy Folk Tempo signet ring.

What shoes do you wear most often?
I live next to the beach, so I don’t often wear shoes. When I do, I love a pair of red Adidas sneakers with everything.

What do you sleep in?
A vintage t-shirt and underwear.

Is there anything you would never wear?
I’m still happy to play, but nothing wrong with it.


Is there a current trend that you love?
I love all the stitches, crochets and stitches from Wynn Hamlyn, Albus Lumen, Bottega…

What do you wear on a typical workday?
Sweatpants – I’ve always liked to wear sweatpants, it’s not a COVID thing – with a dress shirt. Or high-waisted pants from Maggie Marilyn or Max Mara with a vintage t-shirt or button-down shirt.

What’s your favorite casual Sunday look?
I’m obsessed with Lucy Folk’s long terry robe. I’ll wear it over a bathing suit or a silk dress for a late lunch at Sean’s [in North Bondi] and I feel like I’m living my best dress life.

Anna is the artistic director of Albus Lumen’s Society space.
