A woman of many talents, Director and Designer of Maurie + Eve, mother of three beautiful children and an influential, inspiring woman in the world of sustainable fashion, we talk to Kelly Davis Green about what inspires her, her business and, of course, her favourite pair of Luv Lou's.
What does an ordinary day look like for you?
I like to rise early and start the day with a meditation session to quieten and connect with the soul. Three children of course keep things busy (it’s a mad house in the mornings!), but my husband Jez and I wouldn’t have it any other way. With Bowie, Ryder and Tavi organised, it’s off to MAURIE + EVE Head Office on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Here, back-to-back meetings with my team and A LOT of zoom calls with overseas production. I’m a big believer in balance and so, no matter how the day evolves, will always squeeze in a moment for myself by way of infrared sauna, 45-minute PT session or Yin class … and then back to work. Finally, home to the family, a walk with the dog, dinner and connection with the kids. The ultimate wind down? A hot bath.
We have loved Maurie + Eve for many years, what keeps you inspired to design and create your beautiful pieces?
Thank you! It’s been a journey. I truly love what I do and feel blessed to bring my vision to life. I find inspiration in lifestyle – connection, relationships, the ocean, nature, growth, comfort and evolution, both as a brand and individual.
What do you love most about running your own business?
The energy. The capacity to create and stir something in other people – other women. The growth that comes from the highs, lows and in-betweens. The ongoing understanding that authenticity comes first. My beautiful team of whom I am nothing without. The growing followship, loyalty and global love. Watching on as our beautiful customers live, love, travel and explore life with comfort and confidence.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Be humble to see your mistakes, courageous to admit them, and wise enough to correct them.
Which Maurie + Eve piece is your go to at the moment?
The Yonder Dress! Created from 100% organic crinkle cotton, its oversized exterior allows the wearer to reimagine for most occasions. Leave loose for beach vibes or reach for the adjustable belt and cinch the waist for after five. For me, I like it best with sunkissed skin and barefeet.
As a local to the Northern Beaches what does a perfect Sunday look like to you?
Slow. I’ll sage the house, turn up the music and watch the kids cruise in their PJs ‘til midday (unless its summer and the beach calls). I’ll wake with the sun and head to our local haunt for coffee and croissants … an afternoon Vinyasa class at Modern Movement melts away any stress from the week that’s been. A walk for the dog. Mediation and connection with the kids in nature. Preparation for the week ahead kicks in post-dinner before a Sunday night UNO match or movie. Finally, a glass of red and a hot bath – always.
What are your staples in your beach basket as the days get warmer?
The MAURIE + EVE Cotton Gauze Throw. My Luv Lou sunnies, zinc and a big bottle of water. A good book, AYU perfume and The Daily Bar organic snacks.
What Luv Lou style do you love most?
What do you like about Luv Lou eyewear?
Quality eyewear that meets the perfect point between classic and contemporary. Flattering shapes workable from morning to afternoon, beach and beyond. An affordable price point also allows more than one pair … what woman doesn’t want that?!
