clos-ette case: Julie Macklowe

Posted on January 05, 2012 by Melanie Charlton

In our humble opinion, the best way to kick off a stylish New Year is with a good old-fashioned closet edit. It’s the perfect time to weed out pieces that haven’t seen daylight since 2009, make room for new favorites, and stock up on amazing hangers to keep your clothes in tip-top shape. If you’re lucky, your closet will end up as immaculately chic as fashion-plate entrepreneur Julie Macklowe’s. The former financier is all about keeping things sleek and streamlined –which is exactly the inspiration behind her killer new skincare line, vbeauté. Here, she chats with Clos-ette about her gutsy style and favorite finds.

How would you describe your personal style? 

I like to push the envelope. My style is a bit more edgy and ‘runway-esque.’ I love wearing unique items that are real ‘wow’ pieces and catch my eye.

I can’t get enough…

Lucien Pellat-Finet cashmere statement sweaters. I love the impact the sweaters make. (Clos-ette tip: expertly fold sweaters with our Scented Folding Boards and store in neat stacks separated by our Acrylic Shelf Dividers).

What’s the most comfortable thing you own? 

My Ugg slippers.

What's the most cherished thing in your closet?

A Bakelite necklace from the 1920’s from my paternal grandmother Dolly. She had exquisite style.

What will you be packing in your Travel Jewelry Case this winter? 

My Solange Azagury-Partridge Hotlips ring, a pair of Jessica Mindich goth earrings, a few Lorraine Schwartz bangles and my V ring by Maud Cabot, which I wear daily. And I can’t forget my vbeauté It Kit!

What’s your favorite fashion advice? 

Love what you wear. It’s better to have a few fabulous pieces than many you don’t love. (Protect the shape and integrity of your favorite pieces with our streamlined Signature Hangers).

Whose closet would you like to raid?
