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.

May’s Girl: Laurie Trott

Occupation: Fashion Director, Who What Wear

As the Fashion Director of Who What Wear, what do you do each day?

It’s my job to spot fashion trends within street style, red carpet and runway. I’m constantly looking with my team to find new and exciting ways for our readers to shop, dress and get inspired by fashion.

How do you find inspiration?

It’s everywhere, if you’re looking at it through the right lens. Sometimes it’s the character in a movie or a book. Right now, I’m really inspired by what’s happening on the street and how people are putting their looks together. I’m also always looking through old photo books and fashion editorials. It’s fascinating to see how things come full circle from ten, twenty years ago.  

What are you wearing in the photo?

Stella McCartney blazer, Current Elliott stiletto jeans, Isabel Marant henley, Aurelie Biderman cuff, Jennifer Fisher ring on a chain as a pendant and Balenciaga shoes.

Who are your favorite designers right now?

Love Sacai, Dries Van Noten, Louise Goldin, this new collection Kule, and Reece Hudson, obviously!

What is your favorite website and where do you look for news?

Who What Wear, and LeFashion for fashion and style. For news, I skim, DailyBeast, WSJ, and everyday.

What are you currently reading?

I’m a such a book juggler, and being able to download them really lends to this.  Over the past month I’ve been flip-flopping between the Anjelica Huston biography, Little Failure by Gary Shteyngart and The Flamethrowers. I’m also a very devoted New Yorker and New York Magazine reader! 

What are you lusting for?

One of those Hawaiian print evening dresses from Marc Jacobs S/S ‘14, a grey minidress from Louise Goldin and one of the gold foil ruffle pieces from Dries.  And a replacement on my Adidas Rod Laver sneakers, which I can’t find anywhere!
