This month, we met with the creative Daniela Marqueiro for our talks with inspirational women. We got to know her taste and how she connects with A-line.

Who’s the person behind Boop, your blog?

I am passionate about my family – João and our daughter Benedita, who is 2. I am 36 years old and have always lived in Porto, where I was also born. My family is my great support and always comes first. I am a graphic designer, a teacher at an art school and I am passionate about art and the universe of visual culture. I have a restless spirit, and although it may seem a little cliché, I try to constantly reinvent myself, it makes me feel fulfilled and happy!

How would you describe your style in 3 words?

I find it difficult to describe my style in 3 words, the description always feels lacking. But I mainly wear practical, relaxed and comfortable clothes.

You are currently living in Porto. What’s your favourite place in town?

I have several places of choice, but it always depends on my state of mind.

You love to travel. Is there a place that has stuck with you?

For the last three years I have travelled only in Portugal. After Benedita was born we ended up choosing destinations that we were more familiar with – to facilitate the logistics of first-time parents. But I am eager to travel the world again and I have a long list of destinations I want to explore. I need new synergies, new cultural and gastronomic experiences. And if on the one hand I need cosmopolitan landscapes, on the other hand, I also enjoy quiet landscapes…

Having a daughter must have changed things a lot. How did it change your life?

It is good to think in retrospective. Over the past 3 years, a lot has changed. It was difficult to reconcile Benedita’s birth with my professional activities, while finishing a master’s degree and moving 3 times from home. Our habits have clearly changed, so I had to restructure my priorities and become more practical and assertive. Sometimes we need moments of abstraction and introspection, when we have children that is impossible. But being a mother is probably the most crosscutting role a woman can take on. It’s a full-time, uninterrupted life project. I so want to make the most of this experience, because Benedita is at a fantastic stage of her life, and now that I am more available, it is great to have the opportunity to build a close-knit relationship with her great to build on our complicity.

What do you love about A-line?

That the personality and originality of the details make each shirt different and carefully thought out. They are timeless, versatile and created with maximum attention to detail.

Which of the A-line shirts are you?

I think I’m more than one. The AL02, because of the simple and pure lines, and the Bold Loop, because of its sophisticated lines and the loop detail, which I love!
