Mel is my 2nd BBHer. She is a managing partner and co-founder of BBH Labs and has been with the company since 1997. She says " I usually don't know where I am going or what I'm going to next, it's one of the things I most enjoy about my job." Mels style influence is her cat Smokey - I guess for the colour and Anna Karenina. Surprisingly she speaks Russian and once lived in Siberia. For the shot she is wearing a jacket by Paul Smith, skirt by Marc Jacobs and beautiful shoes from Oscar de la Renta.
