Break Babe: Maggie White

I first met Maggie in 2015 when we were both young store managers in Soho. Thankfully she forgave me for the time I threw her shade in our office group chat for wearing flip-flops to work, and we’ve been close friends ever since. Life of the party, a real natural beauty, and lethally hilarious, Maggie is the type of friend you can always count on— whether it’s shotgunning a beer or taking care of your dog.

Behind The Break: Nicole

This spontaneous shoot was inspired by an 80's Tonya Harding meets western Penelope Cruz. In a true test of stamina, we met Nicole for eight looks before she had to leave for work, and the flow on set was so beautiful - all of us dancing and singing for four hours straight. It was, unfortunately, over as quickly as it began. Nicole is a beautiful soul — as easy to get along with as she is to shoot. Giving us all of the personality (and so early in the morning!), she instantly became a Break fave + babe for life.
