With as much time as our staffers spend living and breathing fashion, it shouldn’t be surprising that favorite brands start to rise to the top of our individual must-have lists. In this feature, we’re talking about those favorite designers and how they fit into our personal style. This month: Annie, who loves Raquel Allegra.
Position: Product Copywriter
Brand: Raquel Allegra
Why you love the brand in 6 words or less:
Wearable art, made in the USA.
What’s your favorite piece from the brand right now?
The Shirred Skirt.
How would you describe your personal style?
Undone classic. I feel most like myself in things that aren’t too polished, like slouchy pants and loose tops, but I like to mix in delicate textures and menswear-inspired pieces to finish a look.
Do you have a style icon?
I love when people take chances with fashion, so Diane Kruger and Claire Danes are on my list.
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what pieces would it consist of?
Something that would age well! I would wear a gauzy tee under a tailored men’s jacket, slim trousers, and ankle boots. Plus, one of my mother’s hand-woven scarves for texture and warmth.
What is your earliest fashion-related memory?
As a toddler I dearly loved shoes—my granny’s red pumps, in particular! Every chance I got, I found them and clopped around her house until she came to their rescue.
