1. Lovely to meet you! Please tell us about yourself. What do you do and where do you live?

Hi my name is Irina Kro Eicke! I’m fashion influencer living between Bali and New York. I’m obsessed with fashion, styling, design & photography, and I’m also a big classical music lover. I also work with my husband’s company MAX ID NY contributing to marketing and visuals for the brand.

2. What is your star sign?

I’m a Pisces with my ascendant in Capricorn and my Venus is in Aries.

3. Favourite holiday destination and why?

There is an island called Bintan which is only a 30-minute ferry ride from Singapore, but it’s part of Indonesia. My favourite hotel there is The Sanchaya — this place is heaven on earth.

4. My number one skincare secret is ...

My Nu Face Microcurrent facial device is a game changer. Frozen essence cubes by Ameon too! 

5. What are you currently listening to / reading? (Podcast, playlist or book)

Podcast / Great Women Artists, Kerry Hessel

Book / Stefan Zweig : Letter from an Unknown Woman

Playlist / my friend Elena Kosharny created my recent favourite Spotify playlist, it’s called Sensual Summer.

6. Favourite FELLA swimsuit this season?

I adore the Gabriel Top and Ace Bottoms in Powder. And of course, the Casanova Top and Mr Smith Bottoms in all possible colours!

7. If money was no object, what would your dream job be?

I would love to build a charity artist residency project in Bali with my husband.

8. Are there any foundations or causes close to your heart?

My sister-in-law introduced me to the kids at the Bali Hope Orphanage in Bali. They are the most epic kids and I’ve never seen a more beautiful bond than between all of them. For anyone passing through Bali, they’re always looking for support.

9. We name all of our swimsuits under male / unisex birth names or famous male characters throughout history. If you had it your way, what would you name your next Fella swimsuit?

Tadao Ando.
