Pop & Suki: meet the besties behind the bags

As I have been staring at Suki Waterhouse’s black lace bra for the best part of an hour, it seems only right to ask her where she got it. “It’s from Elyse Walker in LA,” she grins, totally unfussed that her stripy jacket is wide open and her bralet and taut stomach are flashing at all the breakfasting businessmen.

But then, why should Waterhouse be fussed by an attention-grabbing bralet? Life is going pretty well. The 24-year-old London-born model, who has fronted campaigns for Burberry, H&M and New Look, has moved successfully beyond a Hollywood power romance with Bradley Cooper to build a burgeoning acting career. She received rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival last month for her role in the dystopian drama ‘The Bad Batch’.

“We wanted something that you can personalize,” model and actress Suki Waterhouse says of Pop & Suki, the accessories line she started with her business partner and best friend Poppy Jamie. The brand features high-quality — yet affordable — pieces like bags, luggage tags, jewelry and charms (including a high-fashion update on the BFF broken heart necklace) that can be customized in a range of colors and monograms. But most of all, Pop & Suki “celebrates friendship and girls working together,” Poppy says. The duo’s own friendship began on the dancefloor of an LA nightclub (“It was love at first sight,” according to Poppy) and they’ve been inseparable ever since, going everywhere from Machu Picchu to the Amazon rainforest together. This spirit of adventure influences the way they conceive of the pieces in their collection. “We’re super into juxtaposition,” Poppy explains. “A girl can be a massive tomboy but also love a bit of dressing up.” Tell all your friends.

In the new issue, out 3rd November, Suki talks online dating, being rubbish on social media and reveals what the future has in store.

Discussing her love life, Suki, who previously dated Bradley Cooper, said: “I’m on Raya [a dating app popular with celebrities, aka The Illuminati Tinder]. Me and my sister [Immy, also a model and actress] are on it. We just talk to each other instead of potential dates. I know that in the future I want to be in a committed, loving relationship and have kids. Even though I’m happy being single, I spend a lot of time dreaming about being in love. But right now, I’m building… I’m doing all these things for me. I don’t know if I have the tools to be in a relationship right now.”

Suki is too busy for love, what with a stellar modelling career and a new business venture with her TV presenter best friend, Poppy Jamie. The pair decided there were no fashion brands who catered for girls who wanted to enjoy fashion with their friends, so they decided to do something about it. Enter accessories brand, POP&SUKI. The collection launches at the end of the month, and it’s guaranteed to be on everyone’s Christmas list this year.

Suki and Poppy are very active on social media, but Suki says it’s not all as it seems: “It’s all grossly inaccurate,” she said. “Everything that’s put on social media is distorted. All these steps that you take to show everyone on the internet that you’re perfect.

“It’s not even a tiny bit like it. But still, I’ll look at someone’s account and think, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to be her?’ It’s stupid. I know that people are looking at my account and might be thinking the same.”
