As CHIEF COMMERCIAL OFFICER of Iconic Offices, ALTHAEA FEDERLEIN’s work style reflects the exciting design-led, cultural working spaces she provides for clients in 16 locations across Dublin …
WORK STYLE: This has been such an exciting year as we have opened four new buildings. I have a lot of meetings about anything from expansion plans to planning the events calendar for our community. For serious meetings I wear wear a little bit of Victoria Beckham, Donna Karan or See by Chloé, swapping a favourite black leather jacket for something more demure. Otherwise I’m a huge fan of a white shirt and high heels and would describe my style as high street warrior with a few designer accessories. I have a few pairs of black shoes but I love a bit of colour – so I have rose gold, silver and orange heels in my wardrobe. In general, our office code is smart casual and allows some creative leeway.
EXPERIENCE: At university in Turin I observed the way Italians always add something interesting to their look. I favour simple things with unexpected details.
ESSENTIALS: I do like a good bag and have a few – Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Hermès, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. I am a fan of YSL for beauty products and always wear their base with lashings of mascara and a good, punchy red lipstick. My scent is Alien by Thierry Mugler.
REFERENCES: Kate Moss. My weekend wear doesn’t differ too much from my habitual
style, though with two young children and a house near the beach, I tend to wear less skirts and go with relaxed casuals – vests and sweaters.
