LR Community Series: Meet Marieke van der Poel

Featuring Creative Foresight Strategist Marieke van der Poel

Hi friends!

Next up in our community series, meet Marieke van der Poel of Proef, an international creative strategy and forecasting consultancy. She works with international clients to help them understand and create what we’ll want in the future (coolest job ever??). Marieke is a long time customer and I love seeing how she wears her pieces living abroad in The Netherlands and traveling the world. Her recent purchases were the Arva sweatshirt and the Analu dress, and for those of you looking for easy fit, luxe/elevated loungewear pieces, these fit the bill! Seeing how our customers style these pieces is further confirmation that our styles can be worn in multiple ways by multiple body shapes…and in multiple countries. Without further ado…meet Marieke!

What is your fave piece from the new collection?
I love the Arva sweatshirt. It works for different climates because of the medium weight of the fabric. The placement of the stripe is unusual and flattering. I have been getting questions about the brand, because they stand out (and we like to wear clothes that stand out!). I wear the sweater as a t-shirt under a cashmere sweater or on its own… also love wearing it with bell bottoms because it can be worn with either ribcage or low rise styles.

How would you wear it?
I wear the sweater as a t-shirt under a cashmere sweater or on its own.

Where would you wear it?
We like to say “tout terrain”…it can be worn EVERYWHERE!
