Behind every amazing boutique is an even more amazing and stellar team. At KIN Los Angeles, we are crazy obssessed with the many chic, trendy and downright beautiful designer brands we carry in-store and online – but what about the people who make it all happen? This is the #KINCREW, where we highlight our eclectic team of fashion gurus, makeup artists, style experts and accessory afficiandos. Each member of the #KINCREW comes from a diverse background or far away place, with unique styles that bring that extra little bit of authenticity to KIN Los Angeles.
Meet Sam Burchfield, our fantastic personal shopper. His attitude is pleasantly cynical, with a side of quick-wit. He is the mastermind behind our flat lay outfits and has a big hand in merchandising the Sunset Boulevard store. Although we get lost in his Aussie charm (and cheeky Australian slang), he has quickly turned into our unofficial KIN cheerleader, model on hand and is an overall sparkly gem to work with at KIN (his words, not ours). Needless to say, we could not live with out him!
We sat down with our favorite Australian to learn a little bit more about him, his personal style and his favorite pieces at KIN Los Angeles.
