One of those people who epitomizes rocker chic to the fullest is without a doubt Kate Lanphear, style director at T Magazine. To me, she just has this perpetually cool sense of style, and I always find myself completely drawn to pretty much everything that she’s wearing. This look in particular was one that totally got me recently.  Lovin’ the whole combo which I’d say is very representative of her trademark style. And as someone who personally has a soft spot for all things leather, she definitely provides a ton of inspiration on that front. I saw her  last month at Coachella, and believe me, she looked just as badass in person.

    I absolutely love her too! I think you and I have got a fashion connexion of some sort. :)
    I saw KL at last NYFW, I was holding the door for whoever was behind me, and well, it was her. As stylish as ever.

      We definitely do Elodie! :) Awesome that you saw her too. She always looks so freaking cool!!

    She has her own unique style that she adheres to. It seems that the women that are often lauded for their style are the ones who do not follow trends.

      I agree with you 100% Marlene!

    Kate Lanphear is one of my fashion inspirations for sure! Because of her I’m on an endless shirt for the perfect leather jacket.

    Beautiful post and I totally agree with you, T! Her eye for grunge and menswear-inspired pieces always keeps me wanting more :) I had the opportunity to meet her at NYFW and don’t let the badass attire fool you– she’s such a sweetheart!

    She is sooo cool! I am so intrigued by her style, and it’s amazing that you saw her in person! Did you say hi?
    I love these pictures! Thanks for sharing them, Theresa!

      No, I didn’t. I just stared at her from a distance haha! Thanks Ali!

    What was she wearing at Coachella? It’s interesting how people who stick to a certain color palette or silhouette like her and Emmanuelle Alt all of a sudden become very intriguing and a mystery forms around them to know what they’re really like. :)

      I know what you mean. When I saw her, it was at night and she was wearing all black – hoodie, skinny jeans, and boots. :)

    I always have to admire her style, she constantly looks so effortless, and I mean, damn, could her leather jacket get any better?

      She totally does! I know, it’s so good! xo

    OK, this woman is amazing!!! Totally my cup of tea, you know it. I didn’t know her, so thanks for introducing her! BTW, how freaking perfect is that leather jacket? And I thought the Blk Dnm was the most perfect one I’ve ever seen, but this one is it! (bit stiff, with the reverse sticking out, the little side pocket, and the belt!!). Do you know where it is from? This will defo be my next purchase if I ever find out where it is from. BTW, from all fashion editors and people working at magazines, besides Barbara Martelo and Emanuelle Alt, I have to say Donna Wallace (accessories editor at Elle.uk) is one of my style icons! Check her out as well. :) x

      I’ll definitely let you know if I found out who it’s by Laura! :) Yeah, I totally love the styles of the ladies you listed too including Donna Wallace. She’s great! xo
