JEN WEARS FW16 KAITLAN SWEATER JACKET HAND CROCHETED BY BOLIVIAN ARTISANS IN BABY ALPACA BLEND YARNS | JUMP SUIT & SHOES: JEN’S OWN
What is your occupation?
I recently started working with my husband as a Producer at Oddfellows, a San Francisco & Portland-based motion design studio that he co-founded. So far it’s been great. I work with an amazing team and feel lucky to be able to connect with Colin on both a professional and romantic level. It’s not always easy working with a partner, but we’re diligent about setting boundaries and treating each other with respect. In the evenings, on the weekends, and any free moment in-between, I focus on all things Window Of Imagination – shooting and editing photos, coming up with new content ideas, or fostering relationships old and new.

What inspires you day to day?
Colin (my husband) is a big part of my daily inspiration. He provides a different perspective on almost every subject, which I really appreciate, and he helps simplify my vision whenever my thoughts become overly complex. Also, being outside and having a moment to breathe and observe my surroundings brings new life to me. Since I work in an office most days, it can be hard at times to escape the concrete box. Whenever I have the opportunity to step out I almost always come back with a slew of new ideas racing through my head. The best part of these walks is observing the subtleties of everyday life. Sometimes I’ll pass by a plain building and notice the sun showering it with beautiful dappled light which causes the colors to pop and the textures to morph in unexpected ways. I find these details hypnotizing.

What does the ELEVEN SIX brand signify to you?
To me, ELEVEN SIX represents modern, effortless style that is refined in structure and meticulous in detail. You can immediately sense that each piece is extremely well crafted and unites form, function, and versatility without being ostentatious or complicated. That’s why I particularly love the Lila tee neck sweater. It is a timeless, high-quality staple that I know I'll keep for generations. Since I live in San Francisco, jackets are my most prized investments. During the many brisk months, I'll take comfort in wearing the ultra-soft Kaitlan alpaca sweater jacket. It’s one of the most standout pieces in my closet and to my amazement, it goes with everything I own!
