Lydia L.: Our last summer profile. She was referred to me by Alex Romero (we featured him here last month) as quote “a fabulous gal, with great energy and simply stunning style.” Based on the photographs below, I’d say he was right on all fronts. Lydia uses a monochromatic foundation to allow bold, statement pieces like her Hermés scarf or color block pursue to standout against a blank canvas. Outfit aside, the best thing about Lydia is how she describes her style. My favorite part of her quote? “All you need is a trusted cobbler and tailor.” Definitely going to be stealing that line at some point…
It’s all about sleek, clean silhouettes, rich textures and bold statement pieces against a subdued but complimentary palette. More often than not I’ll keep my ensemble monochromatic and draw attention to one particular item- maybe a graphic Jil Sander sweater, or a beautiful Hermes silk scarf- and compliment that standout piece with chosen accessories. I strongly believe in investing in a few high quality, well made items as opposed to buying into fast fashion because those investment pieces will last for years to come- all you need is a trusted cobbler and tailor and you’re good to go!
