KS: Everywhere I am, everything I see, everyone I love. Museums, books, movies, friends, travel.
LC: We have a lot of wonderful mothers reading. How has being a mother shaped your sense of style?
KS: Everything is fast and efficient. I streamlined my closet into only things I love and wear. Rid of the rest! I advise my clients to “buy better, buy less” and I thoroughly believe in this principle.
KS: Anything tight and short. What I mean is: clothes that gently hug your body and accentuate your beautiful curves. I lived in American Apparel leggings and button-down shirts, as well as jumpsuits from Isabel Marant and Hatch Collection. On the other hand, beautiful flowing caftans are great for around the house.
KS: I have painted my whole life. I was very serious about it in high school and very academic in college. Drawing and painting were my way to study things I loved, mostly in the form of sketchbooks, which I was absolutely religious about keeping. I never set out to be an artist, but I always was artistic and my parents fed my creativity in the most supportive way, and I was extremely lucky to go to art school.
KS: I paint in a gorgeous light-filled studio in Chelsea. It’s all white and warm. I travel to places specifically to paint the environment and culture, which became the concept for my In Residence series that I have created in locations all around the world.
KS: My family, comedy (improv), cooking, estate sailing.
KS: Thank you! I love all animals - for their mythological archetypes and for their bodily forms which are so beautiful.
