Get to Know: Margaux

This Saturday, February 18, 11AM-6PM, Alexa Buckley and Sarah Pierson of Margaux join us for a sole-full trunk show. The pair of Harvard classmates turned a shared footwear frustration into a direct-to-consumer footwear brand, aimed to take the pain points out of both the shopping and wearing process by offering handcrafted standard and custom-fit flats in 15 colors. We caught up with the duo to chat about their brand and some of their favorite New York City finds.

Describe your brand in one sentence.
Alexa & Sarah: Margaux is a digitally native brand for the modern woman, offering thoughtfully-designed expertly-fitted footwear.

What’s one fact about you that we can’t learn by googling?
Alexa: I learned to speak Swahili when I was nineteen.
Sarah: I’m both a college drop-out and a college graduate – It’s a long story…

Favorite place to shop?
Alexa: Three Lives – there is nothing better than a neighborhood bookstore.
Sarah: Eataly – Their first-floor hall is a mecca for the food-obsessed, myself included.
Favorite Instagram Feed?
Alexa:
@angelicahicks – A friend and fellow #gauxgirl with a fabulous sense of humor.

 Sarah@annariflebond – I grew up in Winter Park, FL – home to Rifle Paper Co. – and have serious hometown pride for the booming brand. Anna’s feed is a wonderful mix of behind-the-scenes shots from the Rifle office, whimsical illustrations, and glimpses at her life in this otherwise sleepy Southern town.

Favorite favorite place to eat?
Alexa:
Barbuto – for their gnocchi and world famous chicken.
Sarah: Does ice cream count? If yes, Van Leeuwen’s ice cream shop.  Do it big and order a sundae.
 
Favorite place in NYC?
Alexa:
Django Jazz Club at The Roxy – I recently discovered and have been back twice since!
Sarah: The Koch Theater at Lincoln Center – This fall, we had the chance to see Firebird (with the original Chagall sets and costumes) at Lincoln Center. Hands down, it’s the most visually arresting setting in New York – Like sitting inside a Cartier jewel box!

What album or song would you consider your personal soundtrack?
Alexa:
Stand Back by Stevie Nicks.


Sarah
: Perhaps it’s cliché, but I can’t stop listening to Lin Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton – It’s brilliant.
