Get to know our personal stylists, Leslie (left) and Sophie (right), and hear what they have to say about Spring 2017!
Sophie and her personal style: I’m definitely a minimalist. My colors are: White, black, grey, taupe and navy. I practically live in denim. I like to accessorize with some jewelry. And, lipstick is a must.
My favorite trends this season are: Patterned socks with just about everything, including loafers, sneakers, and pumps. I love all the interest in material and color; brocades and pastel velvets, just to name a few. Rose gold sneakers look fresh this season. Espadrilles should be part of anyone’s shoe wardrobe. Block heels and lace-up sandals for day or night will continue throughout the season. I love that look with denim.
My favorite brands this season are: Our own brand, L’idea by Lori that are made in Italy. I love Jslides, and Vagabond. (You will often see me in my Vagabond Caseys)
Leslie and his personal style: I’m definitely a “jeans and t-shirt” kinda guy. But, I always pay attention to detail. I like to mix and match different colors and textures.
My favorite trends this season are: I really like the open back (mules) for this season. I love the casual look of mules with a great pair of distressed crop denim. Platforms and flatforms are having a moment this Spring. You can pair those with a wider leg pant or cropped jean. For the more adventurous person you can also pair a platform sandal with a sheer socklet. I still like the off-the-shoulder top that has interest in material, like a beautiful floral eyelet. My favorite colors this season are the dusty rose, khaki and shades of melon. Bold stripes make a statement this season.
Twice a year, I travel to Milan, Italy to attend Europe’s largest fashion footwear exhibition.
Here’s a sneak peak of what’s in my suitcase…
I always travel with these beauty essentials. These help stay hydrated and feeling fresh during the trip.
I never leave home without my gold bangles and watch from my mom. My Hermes tuile is always nice for a pop of color.
Levels 99 denim embroidered jeans and denim shirt, paired with my Silent D loafers in pewter.
Chic, but comfy sweats from N.Philanthropy, paired with my equally comfortable Zalen sneakers from Dolce Vita.
Faux leather leggings from Blank NYC, paired with my favorite Crime London sneakers.
BB Dakota bomber in navy blue with The Fifth Label tee. Paired with my Jslides Annabelle in bone leather.
Buonogiorno! Of course, a croissant and cappuccino for breakfast.
Everyday is an eating experience in Italy.
Who can resist dessert?
I always leave time to spend at least one day in the countryside with my husband Brian.
