What trends are you most excited about this fall?
I’m loving all the colorful, faux furs that have been coming out recently. I’m planning on wearing lots of faux fur collars on top of some of my favorite coats; it’s an instant (and inexpensive) way to update my classic pieces. Besides that…I’m so glad glitter is having its major fashion moment! I can’t get enough of sparkly, shiny things.
What are your favorite collections this season and why?
Marc Jacobs for his brilliant use of polka dots and pillbox hats, Miu Miu for its marriage of classic 1940s silhouettes and high-shine glitter, Louis Vuitton for making fetish-inspired looks that Upper East Siders will probably end up wearing.
If you could recommend any piece to invest in this season, what would it be?
The perfect leather jacket. Leather jackets are my favorite garment, ever, and fall is the perfect time of year to put them front and center. For this fall, I’ve already bought myself a leopard and leather jacket from ASOS.com.
What/who inspires your style?
Life in New York, the mid 90s (especially riot grrls and cult movies), and every collection released by Miuccia Prada.
