Meet the Model: Astrid Eika

posted on Wednesday, 4th October 2017 | find under Behind the Scenes
With our Winter collection inspired by a design trip to Copenhagen, we were looking for an authentic Danish face to front our new campaign. Step in model Astrid Eika, a Copenhagen native with a love of the outdoors. We caught up with her on set to talk travel, style and avocados.

Where are you from?

Copenhagen, Denmark.

How did you get into modelling?

I was scouted a few times and then decided to give it a go.

What’s been the highlight of your career so far?

There’s been so many, I’m very lucky. Appearing on the cover of Elle Travel and shooting the Lee campaign were both amazing. 

Favourite moment on the shoot?

Doing the catwalk was so fun, I loved wearing all of the different looks and it required lots of energy!

Favourite place in London?
I’ve loved staying at the Ace Hotel.

Standout piece from the shoot?

The Japanese landscape baselayers were so cosy, it was a treat to shoot in them.

Where do you live in the world?
Copenhagen, Denmark.

Where's your favourite place in the city?

I love Vesterbro, which is just outside of the city centre. It has so many cool bars and restaurants including Mother, my favourite pizza place.

How would you describe your style?
Casual, laidback and black.

What’s your go-to piece in your wardrobe?

My black Doc Marten boots. 

Essentials you always take on the plane?

Coconut oil.

What one thing would we always find in your handbag?

Tromborg lipbalm is a stable in my handbag. It keeps my lips smooth and moisturized. The formula feels great, plus I love that it smells like oranges.

Where do you like to workout?

I don’t have a strict workout regime. I love doing anything outdoors and I think the healthiest thing is to walk everywhere. When I'm on vacation I love to swim too.

Guilty pleasure?

A good night out!

What's your favourite food?

Avocado! On toast, with tacos, in a smoothie, I can't get enough.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modelling?
