Meet Jenny Choi, our latest muse from Vancouver. Photographed by Nico de Torres, the photo set illustrates Jenny’s affinity for high-low pairings, mixing up sneakers with couture, even making use of a limited edition Jurassic Park jeep to accessorize. The imagery also showcases a number of local retailers, not limited to Vancouver’s Stussy chapter and sneaker boutique Livestock.

We asked Jenny 10 questions in order to get to know her a little more. See what she had to say below and check out the previous installment with Parisian beauty Camille Gorin.
