Say hello to Jamie Chung, the newest addition to our fall Fossil Kin. We fell in love with her fiery spirit and eye for style when we partnered with her last holiday. Now, we’re oh-so excited to introduce Jamie as our own Fossil Kin.How does someone become a Fossil Kin? First off, we love Jamie’s take on Fossil and the fact that she’s a woman of many talents. She acts, writes for her blog, “What the Chung?” and recently produced her own film! More importantly, her curiosity for new experiences truly encompasses the essence of Fossil.
While shooting our Camp Fossil campaign, Jamie picked her faves from our fall collection, chatted about camp memories, and what she does when she hops off the grid every so often.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING CAMP MEMORY? GO!
Bryan and I went camping early spring, so we thought it would be warm enough to use our summer sleeping bags. When we were making dinner, the temperature dropped. When it was time for bed, Bryan gave me his thick jacket to sleep in. It was the only coat he brought. We went to bed wearing every article of clothing we brought. I woke up the next morning, and Bryan was shivering and had a faint coat of frost on his beard! We were supposed to camp for three nights, but ended up leaving that morning. Turns out we were ill prepared and couldn't hack it!
YOU’RE LOST IN THE WILD. WHAT ARE THE THREE THINGS YOU HAVE IN YOUR BAG (OR ON YOUR WRIST) TO HELP YOU?
A watch with a compass feature, a fire starter and a solar-powered phone charger.
WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE THINGS ON YOUR FALL CHECKLIST?
The Fossil Q Founder Smartwatch is by far the coolest new gadget accessory, a leather backpack and wide-leg trousers.
YOU ONLY GET THREE FOSSIL BAGS TO PACK FOR A VACATION. WHICH ONES DO YOU CHOOSE, AND HOW DO YOU WEAR THEM?
1. Emi saddle bag: It's big enough to carry around my phone, a charger, a small notepad, hot sauce and sunglasses—all the essentials I would need in a bag.
2. Ella backpack: Perfect for an active afternoon hike or a day trip to the beach. I’d wear it with active gear and runners, or a swimsuit cover, bikini and sandals.
3. Jules octagon crossbody: It has the perfect size for your daily walks around town, exploring all the local fares. I would wear it as a pop of color with a short or midi sundress and white sneakers.
WHERE DOES YOUR CURIOSITY COME FROM?
For me, curiosity stems from the excitement of learning and experiencing something new.
