June’s Girl: Laura Stoloff
Occupation: Assistant Fashion Director, Barneys New York
How did you get where you are?
Drive, focusing on the present, but always looking to the future, and genuinely enjoying what I do. And of course never without the help of mentors.
Where do you find inspiration?
I’m inspired by great people in my life and anyone who creates.
What are you wearing in the photo?
My new Proenza Schouler wide-leg pant, Kenzo crop top, and my favorite Reece Hudson bag.
Who are your designers to watch right now?
My favorite ready-to-wear designers right now are Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccolo of Valentino. I’m always intrigued by their true craftsmanship. I also love Aquazzura for shoes and Grace Lee who makes beautiful milgrain gold rings.
Magazines or websites?
Both. I am constantly reading blogs and editorial sites but favor magazines for the images.
What are you currently reading?
The Art of Travel. I’m heading to Japan this summer with my mother.
What/who do you lust for?
Nature. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and value the little time I have out of the city. In terms of fall purchases at Barneys - Aquazzura fringe boots!
What makes the perfect bag?
Whatever catches my eye! I’m not a practical handbag person. I love anything that makes a statement - preferably small.
