Q&A: Orire Omatsola

This week we had creative founder of Re Bahia and My Pet Place, Orire Omatsola, answering our quick Q&A. Read on to find out what new trends the lovely designer and pet lover would love to stop:

SPICE: Hi Orire! What are you working on at the moment?

Orire: I’m not working on anything right now, taking a little break to reboot I guess.

What’s inspiring your creative universe?

Right now, what inspires me would be music videos and textures. Music plays a big part in my creative process, but I’m a very visual person so I get very attached to an idea when I see videos. I’m always inspired by texture; it’s a curiosity of mine. I love touching things and figuring out the feel of it, how they were formed, created, that kind of stuff.

What trend would you like to stop already this new year?

A grammar trend I would love to stop this year would be “turn up”. Getting exhausted of hearing “turn up”, “turn down for nothing” …all that has to stop, please.

What decade best describes your style?

I think the decade that would best describe my style is the 50’s. Women started getting a bit cooler and edgier.

If you were a shoe, which would you be?

If I were a shoe I would honestly be a pair of dirty white converses. I love heels but comfort is everything to me so sneakers, any day.

What can’t you leave home without?

My EOS lip balm – (the) best lip balm in my opinion.

What is your go-to travel outfit?

A t-shirt, pyjama pants, a kimono and sneakers.

What’s currently on your reading list?

Right now I’m re-reading Stephen King’s The Cell and Zealot: The life and times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan.

What’s on your playlist for exercise?

My go-to music for exercise has to be Beyonce, hands down.

If you could raid anyone’s closet, whose would it be?

If I could raid anyone’s closet, it would be Miroslava Duma’s.

Finally, tell us one thing on your fashion wish list?

On my fashion wish list is to intern for Missoni.
