That Mom


IMG_1664

We ran into Luise and her adorable 3-year-old son, Anatole, at a birthday party recently. She moved here from Munich 7 years ago, and is now the photo editor at the New York Times Magazine. We thought she had such cute style, and asked her to tell us about her look:

“I don’t really care about fashion, but I care a lot about style and craftsmanship, about how things are built and the stories behind them—which is why I have long loved Margaret Howell‘s comforting British clothing line—well made pieces that feel lived in when you first try them on.

These painters jeans are Margaret Howell, a happy find from a spring trip to London: straight at the hips, with super wide legs,and flat at the front. They are the perfect pair of jeans; made from Japanese Edwin Denim – the stiff unwashed Indigo kind. (Her store on Wigmore Street also carries beautiful home ware, vintage furniture and a wonderful selection of books.)

I own a dozen of dotted scarves, they are instant mood lifters, and make me feel much less hastily dressed than I really am! A black and white dotted scarf works like a trompe l’oeil on any old t-shirt.

I almost never wear bright colors, this t-shirt is a gift from my mom from Berlin – it’s from COS, the H&M offspring for grown ups. They call this color lemon-green! It’s time they opened a store here – their kids line is really good, and
cheap! The COS Fall Look Book is full of great shapes.”
