Sabina Socol is the architect of her own destiny. After launching her career in fashion as social editor for L’Officiel magazine in Paris, she began making a name for herself in her own right through her personal online channels. Then in 2016, the Romanian-born, French-bred journalist decided to strike out on her own as a freelancer to pursue her creative interests in modeling, writing, designing and art direction. She has since gone on to forge a unique path in the digital sphere, partnering with big name beauty and fashion brands (Lancôme, Louis Vuitton) while amassing a devoted following due in part to her modern embodiment of French girl cool.
When she’s not traveling for work and play, you can find her strolling her 11th arrondissement neighborhood wearing her winter uniform: a cropped cardigan with a pair of perfectly-fitted denim. Here, on a gray afternoon in the City of Light, the Instagram sensation opens the doors to her Parisian perch to chat over coffee about her passions, navigating her own way, and ‘90s beauty inspirations.
