This student and self-proclaimed “compulsive adventurer” dons a range of casual and streetwear garb, showing her affinity for sneakers alongside select menswear pieces. Brands featured include BBC/ICECREAM, Caine London, Joseph, Rokit London, and a grip of her own pieces.

We asked Adrienne 10 questions in order to get to know her a little more. See what she had to say below and check out the previous Meet the Muse installment with Margaux Avril.

Your first modeling gig?

I traveled to Saudi Arabia in 2014 and some photographers approached me for a shoot. They put me in a big red dress and a body of water.

Your current 9-to-5?

I study Development Geography at King’s College London.

Your ideal Saturday night?

I like nighttime adventures. The other day I rented a bike and rode around London for three hours.

Your first thought each morning?

Well, that was a weird dream.

Your favorite wardrobe item?

Black culottes. Mine are made with a SCUBA material.

Your best piece of advice?

To only surround yourself with people who encourage your growth: mentally and physically.

Your no. 1 album?

I’ve got two, Purple Naked Ladies by The Internet and The Water[s] by Mick Jenkins.

Your childhood hero?

David Attenborough – he inspired me to engage in the beauty of nature which is why I now study the development of the world. Everything is so manmade today that we forget nature really determines us all.

Your most treasured possession?

I have two things I always keep with me: a friend gave me a good luck coin that says “Fu” when I was 14 and the other is a small angel. They both fit in my purse.

Your own personal motto?

If you’re not prepared to work a 9-5, be prepared to work 24/7.

Vancouver-born, Berlin-based writer, photographer and editor with a steady hand on the keyboard.
