In this edition of Public Treasure we sat down with styling guru Tricja Cotterrill a.k.a. @TricjaStyling. With an impeccable feel for minimalism, the now Harpers Bazaar Fashion Editor, is everyone's go-to girl for high-end fashion advice. She’s been on the scene for a while and never ceases to amaze with her ‘Less is more’ nature with accentuating single-piece stunners and the statement selects.
Learn as if you were to live forever."
My wedding ring, obviously.
Waking up before my alarm clock, with sunlight pouring into the bedroom. A cup of coffee with lots and lots of milk followed by a good breakfast. And if it’s not too much to ask… all of that on a warm holiday destination overlooking the ocean, please!
Ever since I was young, I’d always been focussed on making my own clothes and being creative in every way possible. I’ve always loved creating a look and feel or making a mood board. My walls were always covered with ripped out magazine clippings that I used as a sort of wallpaper. After my sister and I had owned our own clothing boutique in Amsterdam for two years, I started assisting for a fashion stylist. From that very moment I knew… This is what I want to do! Here I am seven years later and my passion for creating beautiful things has subconsciously become reality.
If I could guess, I think it would be: down to earth, funny, spontaneous and straight to the point.
For being an honest and ‘gezellig’ person!

I think Kat Klerks makes beautiful artwork.
I have a huge sweet tooth.
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever."
I often use minimalistic statement pieces in my work. A beautiful earring or ring can really make a look complete.
I love Doxpeter, Isabel Marant, Linda Tol, Unconditional Magazine, Rika Magazine and Rika Studios.
