Charlotte Takes Stock


Charlotte Stockdale is one half of a London-based power couple. In addition to designing the interior of New York’s Lever House restaurant, her husband, Marc Newson, is known for his funky, amoeba-shaped furniture and commissions for LVMH, Qantas, Nike, and the Gap. Stockdale, a stylist with her own impressive list of clients—Paul Smith, Dolce & Gabbana, and Patrick Cox—was in town helping Karl Lagerfeld style the Fendi show. We caught up with her before the show and asked her for her 2009 Milan fashion week likes and dislikes. “I am hating that jimble-jumble eighties look,” she groaned. “It’s neither modern nor desirable, and those who have chosen to pick it up have been too literal—it’s a look for the lazy.” She clarified: “When Marc Jacobs turns his mind to something he is able to twist it into something completely original, in his own brilliant way. It’s so attractive that everyone follows.” And her likes? “Minimal—it’s a real challenge. Raf Simons at Jil Sander is an ace at it.”
