From growing up in South Holland to being on a stage surrounded by angels, Romee Strijd has always stood out. With piercing blue eyes, ethereal blond hair and an incandescent smile, it may seem that Ms. Strijd was destined to arrive here. But to dwell on her appearance is to miss what, in our minds, makes her so special. Part of that is due to her upbringing: the Dutch, who are notoriously down-to-earth, prioritize education and living their lives in open air. As her career has risen over the last several years, Romee has truly come into her own—able to exist both as a supermodel and as an independently successful woman beyond the industry. To no one’s surprise, she’s also an absolute dream to work with. 

Though the equinox is still a few weeks away, it finally feels like summer. Well-versed in the art of dressing for a heat wave, Romee knows the key to playing it cool is to embrace your summer whites. Few things transition as easily between the office, the beach and a night out. And besides baring it all, nothing feels as freeing. White-on-white looks, in cotton, satin, or linen will always be effortlessly cool, just like Romee.
