The whole scenario stresses us out, but she had the best answer.
When we last saw Marina Larroude, she was the market director of Style.com (RIP, Style.com; you are forever in our hearts!). That was back in 2013, and these days, you can find her as the fashion director at Barneys New York (with a stint as fashion director at Teen Vogue in between). Her days are filled with designer appointments and pulling looks for internal shoots, guiding buyers on the next season’s key pieces, and helping develop Barneys New York's in-house collection. Sounds fun, right? Even better? The famed department store just gave her her very own curated space in the Madison Avenue flagship and online store called “We Adore,” and it’s filled with items hand-picked by Larroude herself. Items she truly adores.
Larroude’s signature taste skews statement-making, metallic, bright, and fun—all words you could use to describe her edit. But in the words of Levar Burton, don’t take our word for it: We sat down with Larroude right before NYFW kicked off to talk all about gig, her new curation, and the fashion month essentials she’d pack in a hurry.
