Editor in chief MINT ( @mint_journal )

"Irina Lakicevic is momentarily tied up. “You caught me right in action,” says the street style star and editor of Mint Journal, calling breathlessly from her hometown of Bergen, Norway. When in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, Lakicevic dashes from show to show, but back in the Nordic city, her hours are passed filling cavities, cementing crowns, and performing root canals.
