Petra Teufel’s Marie von Behrens

The chic Hamburg boutique’s Marie von Behrens shares her style secrets

 

Often the greatest style statements come from places closer to home than the catwalk, and the staff at Petra Teufel are no exception. We asked the always chic and elegant Marie von Behrens from the Hamburg store to share her style secrets for AW14, and the results are immediately inspirational…

Marie’s favourite designers:
‘I love IRO Paris, Givenchy and Alexander Wang.’

Her style heroines:
‘I love Leandra Medine, founder of the blog The Man Repeller. Every single outfit she wears looks so special, individual and most important - man repelling! Leandra just pulls on whatever she is in the mood for, without spending any thoughts what others might think…. she rocks!
I also love Alexa Chung. Whenever I see any pictures of her hitting the red carpet or walking along the streets of London she looks so effortlessly stylish and it never fails to amaze me.’

Marie’s role at Petra Teufel:
‘I work on the social media elements of our store. Whenever we have new arrivals, which is almost every day, I pick out the best new items to create outfits and detail shots. We have many customers who do not live in Hamburg, and uploading pictures on Instagram or Facebook is a good way to keep them updated with our new pieces.’

Her daily inspirations:
‘Every time I see a woman with great style I find it very special. That's probably why I love to travel…There are so many different styles in every single country.’
