Hi Cyndle, hi Stas! Firstly, can you tell us what you do and where you live?
Cyndle: Hi! I’m an editorial and celebrity makeup artist.
Stas: And I’m a fashion photographer. We live in Williamsburg with our dog, Clyde.

Let’s talk go-tos…

Coffee order:

Cyndle: Cappuccino with oat milk
Stas: Flat white


Cyndle: White T-shirt or button-down with a great pair of jeans and boots
Stas: Black tailored trousers, a black T-shirt or black sweatshirt and sneakers. Uniform dressing, you can’t go wrong.

Neighborhood spot(s):

Cyndle: We love Hotel Delmano for cocktails, 12 Chairs for falafel and Samurai Mama for the best Japanese.


Cyndle: Kurt Vile’s “B’lieve I’m Goin Down...” It’s still one of my favorites.
Stas: Light Asylum, “A Certain Person

You both work in creative fields—what are some things you do to recharge and stay inspired?
Stas: We both love to travel and explore new places, cultures and, of course, food! Collecting new experiences usually leads to an idea for a project.

Any exciting travel plans coming up?
Cyndle: This summer we’re heading to the Greek island of Crete. Looking forward to escaping the city and getting some quality beach time.

Finally, since this our Humans We Heart series, can you both tell us about someone you admire?
Cyndle: I want to give a shout-out to my mother, Judith. She’s always been a source of love and support even with my most wild ideas!
Stas: I’d say Marcus Aurelius, for sharing his wisdom about human nature.

As Marcus Aurelius once said, “Good days start with great jeans.” Just kidding, that was us. Find your future favorite pair plus more essentials in our new arrivals.
