Postcards From:
Lanzarote with Marta Cygan

Meet Marta Cygan, the Polish Parisienne cool-girl living between Los Angeles and Paris whose love for timeless pieces has influenced her love for fashion, art and interior. Marta’s account @lifeofboheme is an ode to her eclectic style and showcases the inspiration she draws from around the world.

We joined Marta on her trip to the Canary Islands on the volcanic island landscape of Lanzarote as she captured pieces from our latest ‘Mamounia’ & La Lune collections.

You are constantly on the move between Paris and Los Angeles, what drew you to these locations and how does your French aesthetic influence your space in LA?

I think it's similar for anyone who travels, you come back home with new inspirations, fresh influences and slowly your home becomes a reflection of your very own aesthetic, that you built with life experiences. It's how I like to see it. Living in LA is completely different from Paris but having both is my balance. Living in Los Angeles was a goal and I'm very proud I achieved it. Initially I was planning to settle for a year, I thought it would just be something to tick off the bucket list, it’s now been 5 years, and I call it my second home. It changed my life. My French aesthetic is compatible with LA, I love California Modernism with French, European touches; it's a chic and modern twist.

You’ve been documenting your style for many years, have you found your signature has evolved over the years and what plays the biggest role in this?

My style is constantly evolving as I'm growing as a woman, I learn, I try, and I know myself more which helps a lot to build your very own style. But honestly it's also very playful and instinctive. Again, travelling and living in different cities makes my style more eclectic. My style constantly oscillates between masculine and feminine, vintage and designer pieces.

Your profile @lifeofboheme showcases all things from fashion to art, where do you draw your inspiration from?

I document and photograph everything I find pleasant for my eyes. Nature, flowers, art, architecture and fashion, obviously. I walk and I get inspired by people at the beach or often by nature when I'm in LA, or galleries and museums in Paris. It's very instinctive, my approach is not to post the perfect image but the perfect moment captured.

Sourcing and shopping vintage has played an important role in your lifestyle from the very early stages of your career. Can you share some tips on accessible ways to implement a more sustainable approach to shopping for vintage pieces?

Sourcing vintage pieces has always been a defining characteristic of a unique wardrobe, since my young age. It just feels authentic and real to find a good vintage piece, it means creativity and authenticity to your wardrobe and your style. My style gravitates towards vintage finds because they always fit with everything in my closet.

Your love for vintage fashion and interiors is evident through your work, where would you recommend to visit and shop between Paris and LA?

In Paris I would definitely recommend Les Puces de Vanves and in LA the Rose Bowl Flea Market.

You shot our latest collection ‘Mamounia’ on the picturesque volcanic island of Lanzarote, what was the experience like?

Shooting Mamounia in Lanzarote was epic! The volcanic landscapes and black sand looked phenomenal with my favourite piece, the La Lune Column Maxi Dress. It was so relevant to shoot the collection here. I was blown away, at some places the sand was pink because of the salt I guess and at some other beaches the sand was black because of the volcano. I must admit this place is very special and unique. Architecture wise it is spectacular, the nature is unbelievable.

Best places to eat, sleep and shop in Lanzarote?

To Eat: Breakfast at Buenavista is incredibly delicious! Lunch, Casa Rafa or Cantina. Lastly, for dinner I recommend Coentro and Kamezí Deli & Bistró is also a must.
To Sleep: I recommend Buenavista Lanzarote and Casa de los Naranjos or Casa de Las Flores 

To Shop: I recommend to shop local artists such as Eguzkine Ceramica.

Describe the ultimate travel itinerary for the Canary Islands? Are there any tips you can share with our readers on must dos when visiting?

For Lanzarote I recommend staying at least 4 days and you must rent a car for easy access around the island.

 

The island's wholly picturesque allure doesn't end there, it's impossible to talk about Lanzarote without mentioning César Manrique, who was a local artist and architect. My favourite of his works is César Manrique Foundation and Casa César Manrique are my absolute favourite places, sublime! Mirador Del Río is also by Manrique.

 

I highly recommend Las Playas Caletones for pristine white sand.

La Delicatezza Cocktail Bar for fun.

What are you reading, watching and listening to?

I watched White Lotus on Netflix; hilarious. I loved it.

With the new year upon us, what is next for you? Are there any exciting projects you’d like to share with us?

Fashion Week in Paris is starting soon with menswear and womenswear showing in February. I'm excited about some great shows and a lot of work. Then I will be in LA for some time and I have personal projects and work related travels I'm excited about.
