Stéphanie Sokolinski has always walked her own path. From her musical debut with the spare and honest I Will Never Love You More to her recent acting work and zine of Instagram sexts; she’s truly individual, uncompromising and interesting. That’s why we jumped at a chance to interview this self-confessed cat lover and creative chameleon.

“Yes, but she wants to shoot with tons of kittens”

“Imagine all those kittens wriggling inside you, that would surely give you eternal life!”

Our interview request for Soko is met with one caveat… “Yes, but she wants to shoot with tons of kittens”. Never ones to shy from a challenge, several calls later, and we have secured a clowder of Persian kittens for the photos. Soko’s excitement is palpable, and her responses are peppered with “It was the best Sunday I have ever dreamed of. That’s the kind of morning that is worth waking up for.” You only have to view her Instagram for evidence of this, where she placed them in a cup and pretended to drink them, “Imagine all those kittens wriggling inside you, that would surely give you eternal life!”
