The oft-photographed Sofia Sanchez de Betak, known by her nickname and Insta handle Chufy, has been making other designers’ clothes look good for years. Now it’s her turn. The Argentinian model and girl about town just launched her own brand, Chufy. “I've had the dream for many years, I cannot believe it's happening! I always loved shopping or getting inspiration from my travels, either buying fabrics during trips and making my own clothes when back at home, or finding great artisans or tailors around the world and getting my custom clothes as souvenirs,” she explains. In honor of her new line hitting retail, BAZAAR asked Sanchez de Batek to showcase her favorite piece in the collection, three ways. Her current most valuable fashion player? “My Chufy poncho vest! Because it works well for any season and layers perfectly with almost everything, a leather jacket, a pair of jeans, a jumpsuit or a dress. I love that it protects my chest and works as a scarf, and also my back, which makes it perfect for planes.”
