Q&A - Celine Aagaard
Creative Director and co-founder at Envelope1976, Head of press at eco.logic and Editor in chief of envelope.no
You are what you eat, what are you?
A green potato
What would never end up on your plate?
Do you have green fingers?
If you ask my boyfriend, the answer is no- but Im not to bad with plants. But Flowers… not so good.
What do you do to make your day green?
I don’t drive, so I take my bike or walk with my dog wherever I can, I carry my shopper and try to avoid new plastic bags, I make applejuice from our apples in the garden, stay away from meat, reuse and recycle and together with my family we try to make the everyday a bit greener every day.
Whats your fits-to-all-occasions-garment?
My oversized blazer for sure. I wear blazers as a jacket, but also as a dress- with or without a belt in the waist.
If you only had 8 different garments, what would your wardrobe look like?
I like that idea. 3 oversized blazers-one in creme one in black and one in beige. A black long dress- Istanbul dress from Envelope1976. A knitted chunky sweater one black jumpsuit, a Swimsuit and a pair of pants.
What colours do you belive in for next season?
Creme, dusty green, olive and black.
Forest and hiking, or sea and swimming?
The sound of the ocean is like meditation for me, and swimming is the best I can do for my body and soul- all year round.
Gallery or cinema?
Gallery, I don’t go to the movies very often, but when I was a teenager I used to work at one.
Winer, Spring, Summer or Autumn?
Yes, I love the seasons, and the fact we have them all 4 where we live. Unfortunately the way we treat out planet now – that won’t make it last. We should all care more about out planet – EVERY LITTLE STEP WILL HELP.
How do you beat time?
I go by my bike. That`s freedom for me, and I know for sure i won’t waste time spending it on the phone. On my way i stop at the local market for some vegetables or vintage clothes.
How do you get people smiling?
By just being me I think- or when I`m telling too long stories.
What is happiness for you?
To be with my family and get the chance to create
A or B-human?
A and B.
What drives you?
Life / Family
Whats your life motto?
Veien går til mens du går…. Det du ikke kan, kan du lære deg.
Do you have a local hero you would like to give a shout out to?
Marthe Muriel Skøyen, a Norwegian girl I met in Sri Lanka this winter during a clean the beach project at La Point surf camp. I admire what she does for the planet, and how she is a local hero, always with the focus on the ocean and how we all together can to something.
Finally – who do you want to pass this q&a to?
Rebeca Høien, designer and part of our creative team.
