This Is Why Suki Waterhouse Is Skipping Fashion Week

This Is Why Suki Waterhouse Is Skipping Fashion Week
Matthew Brookes

We’re used to seeing Suki Waterhouse light up the runways at Burberry and Balenciaga this time of year, but this season the star is taking a break from the fashion week grind to focus on her other projects.

“I’m kind of missing it this year,” Waterhouse told InStyle when she stopped by our portrait studio at the Toronto International Film Festival. “I’m finishing up a TV show that I’m filming [The White Princess] and I'm also here in Toronto for The Bad Batch premiere.” The Bad Batch is a different role than we’ve ever seen the model turned actress take on. Described as a dystopian romance, the film follows Waterhouse as Arlen, a young girl wandering around a cannibal-infested desert.

“I see this movie as more of a fairytale love story than a horror movie,” said Waterhouse, who co-stars in the film with Jason Momoa. “I don’t want to give too much away, but if you’ve ever felt like your life was falling apart, it’s a little bit like that. It’s about someone feeling torn apart and how they put everything back together.”

But acting isn’t the only thing keeping Waterhouse off the runway right now. She has also just launched, Pop & Suki, an adorable (and affordable!) accessory line. "Pop & Suki is my baby with my best friend Poppy Jamie,” said Waterhouse, of the collection, which features a customizable camera bag and chic shopper tote, among other add-ons. "We can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

So does that mean we’ll see more designing in her future? “For years I’ve been involved in other people's pursuits and visions, so I wanted to have my own thing,” she said. “But I love the 360 of the business. I love the elements of photography and creating a universe. And with Pop & Suki, I knew I could make something that people would like."
