What trends are you most excited about this fall?
I have Scottish heritage, so I always enjoy plaids, checks, stripes, etc. Also, I'm excited to see color being used for fall.
What are your favorite collections this season and why?
Thakoon—for his use of color and patterns; Rag & Bone—I like the graphic look of their collection; Chloe—love the snakeskin pattern used in different textiles.
If you could recommend any piece to invest in this season, what would it be?
Ok, let's just say, if I could, I would "invest"in a Rick Owens leather jacket, or leather cape with fur lining.
What/who inspires your style?
I guess just New York City at the moment—it encompasses a lot—and I don't get out of the city much.
