Jacarandahome: What is your design inspiration in making your bags?
RocioG: When I start a new collection i usually day dream for at least 2 months or 3 ...
Something that I see ( colors, texture, can be a person, a place) turns the switch "ON" in me.This idea can stay in the back of my head for some time and slowly i start building it up.
JH: What items do you carry in your bag?
RG: Hair brush, wallet, cosmetic bag, BOSE headphones for running, a sharpie, a little notebook to sketch when needed, measuring tape, sunblock, sunglasses (my daughter's and mine).
JH: What are your five favorite things to do in Santa Barbara?
RG: Padaro Beach every afternoon
Going to Polo on Sundays ( Santa Barbara Polo club in Carpinteria )
Riding with kids at the barns.
Strolling through UPSTAIRS at Pierre Lafond
Going for a run in the beach
JH: How does being Argentinean influence your work?
RG: I think that Argentina has always been very "organic" without even trying.
Leather, cowhides, pampas , meat is very home.
I think that I mix a little bit of this with a little bit of my second home (Santa Barbara ) boho, hippie and indian.....
i like to blend.
