Seemingly like everybody else in New York or LA, we at Friend of a Friend are obsessed with sustainable womenswear brand Reformation. Imagine our excitement, then, when Yael Aflalo—the label’s Founder & CEO, and professional chicest woman alive—wanted to chat with Friend of a Friend on her workwear essentials, her go-to beauty look, and what she’s most excited about for Reformation’s upcoming season…check out our Lightning Round with her below.
What is a typical day at the office like for you?
It’s different everyday, and that’s what I love about working for Reformation. I could be interviewing new people to join the team, running over to a fitting, meeting with architects about possible new retail spaces, or reviewing fabric samples for upcoming collections. Today, I was able to start the fitting on our New Years Eve dress collection—and they look amazing!
What’s the most sentimental piece of clothing you own?
A black Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress that I’ve been wearing for seven years and I still feel like a sexy 80’s lady in it.
Silver or gold?
Skirts or pants?
Skirts. I regret wearing pants every time.
Flats or heels?
Flats, I’m already tall.
Who’s your style icon?
What is your go-to beauty look?
Glowing skin—all I need is some concealer, an eyelash curler and a great highlighter.
What is your typical work uniform?
What’s your favorite piece from Reformation collection?
Our leather jackets, I’m wearing the Granite right now.
What’s up next for Reformation?
Continuing to lead & inspire a sustainable way to live. I feel like we have so much more to do!
