Parisa Fowles-Pazdro

In laid-back Malibu, California, where day trips to the beach and beautiful summer skies are endless, we tap this month’s Sunday Girl, the sophisticated globe trotter and Max-Bone founder & designer, Parisa Fowles-Pazdro. From the pristine sands of Zuma to the iconic Surfrider Beach, Malibu’s surfer style and bohemian way of life are the perfect backdrop for the Joie summer collection. This month we visit Parisa in her home away from home, the Max-Bone store in Cross Creek and talk summer getaways, Sundays in Malibu, and her adorable bulldog Mackintosh. We couldn’t help but be inspired by her carefree wanderlust, and we are sure you will agree.

Describe your typical Sunday.

There is something very peaceful about Sunday morning. My husband and I usually take Mackintosh (our dog) for a long walk in the Bird streets where we have lived since we first moved to LA. After, Alfred coffee is a must, and the Melrose Place farmers market. Then I try to pop into our store and say hi to the puppies visiting. Sunday evenings are family time; fireplace, red wine, long dinners and a movie.

Your bulldog, Mackintosh is adorable! How did the two of you meet?

He was a surprise from my husband Max. It was truly love at first sight. Now Mackintosh is so spoiled and protected. We love him dearly and couldn't imagine our life without him. Everyone should have a dog!


Your business, Max-Bone launched just two years ago and is now a popular destination for all chic things, dog related. How did you come up with the idea to create sophisticated clothing for our furry friends?

Our lifestyle has always been very modern and governed by neutral colors, both with our home interiors and what we wear. We struggled to keep the same theme for our dog products. Finding good quality was difficult, so we decided to create it. My motto is, “Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it doesn’t exist, design it."

Do you find that your personal style inspires your elegant creations or vice-versa?

Absolutely. You should always design what inspires you and feels natural to you. Otherwise, it will feel forced, and will fail. That’s why I never listen to what people want me to create. I create what I know is missing, what people need. It always works out. Max-Bone’s core is simple colors and uncomplicated design, just like the Joie girl. Natural elegance.

You and your husband met in a really cute way. Tell us more about it.

Yes! We first met in London, in the dental chair. Not your typical hookup…

The two of you have traveled a lot together, do you have any favorite destinations?

We recently got back from Japan, which was spectacular. We both have international backgrounds, so we still tend to travel a lot. But my favorite type of holiday is a Rustic luxury countryside, (Chewton Glen or Clevedon House in the UK or Blackberry Farm in America). I wish I could write a travel book; I have so many secret places that are out of this world.

Any exciting travel plans coming up for yourself?

I can’t wait for our summer trips to Capri, Antibes, and Milan. And to Aman, Utah in October.

You have a day off from work. What do you do to relax?

I start my days off with exercise; then a nice long breakfast and time with Mackintosh.

Given Joie is all about your perfect summer wear and your beach location is the perfect summer destination, what are some of your must-visit spots in Malibu?

Malibu is the ideal Summer escape. I suggest a stroll on Carbon Beach, a delicious gelato at Grom in the Country Mart, and of course a visit to Max-Bone. In the afternoon, grab a drink at the new Soho House to enjoy dreamy ocean views. And get a table at Nobu Malibu for great sushi.

From supple leashes to cozy knit sweaters to minimalist dog beds, what other products do you envision designing for Max-Bone? Any new happenings coming up for the company?

One reason I love Max-Bone is our approach to organic growth. It’s rewarding working with interesting companies like The Line, Free People, and home décor, and dog stores. They understand and love our concept, so we never have to push sales. We are busy working on our launch for an elegant cat collection —due to debut in September— and collaborations with some of the largest brands and hotels. There’s endless opportunity. In the next 12 months, we are opening three new retail stores: NYC, San Francisco, and Texas. We want to give people a luxurious curated shopping experience for their pets– just as we enjoy being in any high-end store for humans.
