style: Femme Schoolboy
I like classic lines, modern prints and pops of color. I mix in a lot of vintage and fur. Always fur!
Forget the Birkin, Brigitte collects denim
I love jeans! They are so easy and go with everything. You don’t have to have style beyond a great pair of demin and a blouse–you can really express your point of view with jeans, they get better with age and are timeless. My all time fav? Vintage Orange Label Levi’s.
Who is your favorite style icon?
My mother. My style is mostly shaped by my Mom who was a fashion designer in the 70’s. She used to wear these high-waisted, tight blue jeans with a tucked in Fila shirt and these big sunglasses.
The effect is less Axel Rose and more off-beat chic.
What sort of style stops you in your tracks?
I’m drawn to individual pieces. Some fabulous piece will push me into a long conversation with a stranger about their vintage Dries coat or their homemade belt! I admire other people’s style as well. I might take a cue from someone who I think looks amazing and try to incorporate it into my own style. It doesn’t always work but isn’t that what’s fun about it all? You play dress up and sometimes you’re a star and other times, well, lesson learned!
