“My style is often a series of things that, theoretically, don’t match, but are fun to me nonetheless. I enjoy challenging norms with proportion play. It’s also a mix of masculine and feminine elements. Here I’m wearing a Dries Van Noten coat, Calvin Klein (205W39) sweater, a pair of men’s Ann Demeulemeester pants that I washed and dried several times to shrink to fit, and Prada shoes.
For me, ease of wear is everything. I enjoy intricate garments that highlight a level of technique or craftsmanship (for example, the jacquard weave of my Dries Van Noten coat) but at the end of the day they also wear simply and can be paired just as easily with heels as a pair of Vans. Utilitarian with a twist, in a way.
I love coats. I know I have too many, but they’re so fun. Fall and spring are my favorite seasons for getting dressed, and I’ll go as long as humanly possible before giving up a layer. Soft t-shirts are my second habit. I love that they can stay with you for years and years, and only get better with age. I have had the same Black Flag tour t-shirt since I found it in a vintage shop in middle school.”
