Lauren Sonnen
Store Manager/Jewelry Designer
New York
Name: Lauren Sonnen
What do you do? I'm the assistant manager at Steven Alan and I design jewelry
What's inspiring to you at the moment? Lately I'm inspired by human nature! What makes people do what they do or how they represent themselves when they leave their house in relation to who they really are. There are so many colorful people in NYC it makes me wonder what they do at home and how they live.
What's on your playlist at the moment? A Tribe Called Quest, Doug E. Fresh, and cheesy '80s and early '90s like Taylor Dayne, Sheila E., etc. Also anything early by Janet Jackson or Whitney Houston. To balance all that out I add a splash of Journey, Chicago, and The Eagles…sappy stuff that rocks!
Is there anything in your closet that you've never worn? Sadly enough yes. I kind of collect stuff and look at it like, "yeah…I know I'm gonna wear that someday." I have an '80s Alaia cropped leather motorcycle jacket that has been waiting for it's debut for about 3 years now.
