You know you're a cool girl when you go by a mononym, and our October cover girl Emma is the coolest. With her signature bob and red pout, she's become one of Tokyo's biggest It-girls. Now, she's taking on the streets of Paris and New York. In this exclusive interview, she talks about her style secrets, travel must-haves, and the beauty of friendship.
How would you define your style?
All-rounded. I want to be someone who can rock any kind of clothing or makeup looks.
What is your style usually inspired by?
I'm mostly influenced by films and artists from the '80s and the '90s.
What are some staple items in your wardrobe?
My must-have items would be a white T-shirt and a pair of denim jeans.
What are some of your favourite places to travel to and why?
London. My dad is British and my roots are from the UK, so I feel relaxed and inspired every time I visit. I tend to visit twice a year at least.
What do you always pack with you whenever you travel?
A portable speaker! I love listening to music and I like to do so even when I'm chilling in my hotel room. Whenever I travel I will definitely pack them along. I don't feel alone as long as there's music.
You're close friends with fellow model, Nana Komatsu. What's your friendship like?
She's someone precious to me. She's a friend who's like a younger sister too. I can talk to her about everything, from my personal life to work. It's been 6 years since we became friends but she's still someone who makes me comfortable when she's around me.
