Now may be the age of social distancing and being home, but that does not mean our social network goes kaput. In fact, staying indoors has made it even important to remain connected. As such Female has launched a weekly chat session featuring some of our closest friends of the magazine and industry taste makers – who like most of us are working from the comforts of our homes – to discuss topics and issues close to their hearts.

We kicked off the series last week – it airs for 15 minutes on Instagram every Thursday – with homegrown runway queen and model Kaigin Yong who was serving her stay home notice straight from walking for brands like Erdem and Yohji Yamamoto for the Fall/Winter 2020 shows in Europe. This week, we sat down Female Collective member and managing director of creative outfit Elementary Co. Aarika Lee who recently moved to her new “old-school-inspired” apartment for an impromptu house tour and tips on where to get the best decorative indoor plants.
