This week, our founder and creative director Constance von Dadelszen enjoyed a Q&A thanks to our friends at DENIZEN magazine to talk about a few of her favourite objects, places, designs and new discoveries.

Creative director Constance von Dadelszen on Lauren Hutton and Florence 

Constance, above, wears a pair of 1970s Vintage Crawler Earrings, now sold, but click here for a pair of 1980s Christian Lacroix stunners with equal amount of sparkle.

My personal style can be defined as:

Timeless with a contemporary twist.  

The last thing I bought and loved was: 
A 10ft palm tree for our entranceway.

An unforgettable place I visited was:
We stayed at our wedding venue, Villa Le Fontanelle, in Florence during January. It was wonderful to be back at a place that had so many wonderful memories for us.

The next place I'd like to go to:
I won’t be going anytime soon with a baby on the way but I’d love to stay at one of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust eco-lodges in Kenya. We sponsor a few of their elephant and rhino orphans via Love and Object and I’d probably cry with joy seeing them in real life.  

Fringed with doum palms and overlooking the Yatta Plateau, Sheldrick Trusts' Galdessa Little offers a luxurious and once in a lifetime opportunity for travellers seeking to immerse themselves in a hidden and untouched corner of Tsavo National Park.
