Style Icon: Ada Kokosar

Style Icon: Ada Kokosar

I only recently discovered Ada Kokosar, and it's a damn shame! Brought up on the countryside of Milan, this half-italian half-slovenian beauty is one of the most sought-after stylists of the moment. Known for styling celebrities like Chloe Sevigny as well as editorial shoots for Vogue, Italian Glamour, and W Magazine, Kokosar is who I would describe as the Yoda of layering and color coordination. 

She studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute in Milan, all the while working for Italian MTV as the cast's stylist. I'm going to be honest here and admit I had no idea who she was until yesterday, while going through the street style pictures from New York Fashion Week on Vogue. Ada's look (seen right below) was so striking I had to look her up, and that led to a whole can of beans. By can of beans I mean negligence of my homework due to google images stalking. Anyway, Kokosar's style is worth sharing, which is why I've compiled a few of the best street style pictures of her out there. 

In an interview with Lifestyle Mirror, Kokosar said the following about her own style icons: "There are so many. Actresses like Natassja Kinski in Cat People and Maria’s Lovers, Romy Schneider in L’Enfer and La Piscine, Monica Vitti in L’Avventura and Ursula Andress in La Decima Vittima. Peggy Guggenheim is so extravagant and cultivated; Francesca Woodman for her sense of beauty, Madonna, Coco Chanel, and Yves Saint Laurent." 

In an interview with Vogue, when asked what inspired her style: "What’s happening in the world, countries I’ve visited, people I’ve met, diversity, my grandmother who was so elegant but revolutionary for her time." And when asked what she believes to be her staple outfit? "I don’t have one", she said. "I like to dress up according to my mood." 

Are you head-over-heels in love yet? Her style is so versatile that she looks like a new person every day, and I'm such a sucker for people who love to play dress up. She messes around with lots of different textures and her layering is always on point. Not to mention how ballsy she is for wearing seven shades of the same colour in one outfit and pulling it off. If you're not yet convinced, open your eyes and keep on scrolling to see more of her amazing looks. Click here to view her website.

    Thinking of watching a scary movie for Halloween? why not pick up a video-game instead.   There's something particularly chilling about horror oriented video-games that no other medium can replicate. That's because unlike film or writing, games rely on their interactive component to immerse the player into the game's universe. So whereas with movies, you can simply watch events unfold with a pillow at eye level to censure out the gritty bits, in games, you are as involved in...

    Marc 7, a member of the infamous West Coast hip hop crew Jurassic 5, recently tweeted that “thousands of Sasquatch sighting will be reported on Halloween”; signaling the release date of his newest single – one in a string of newly minted solo releases from the MC.   "Sasquatch" helps cultivate his outsider persona and seems to deliver some pointed advice to youngsters coming up in the game. Having been a fixture in the hip hop scene since the early 90’s, it is no wonder the veteran...

    I used to hate slutty Halloween costumes. I would glare at all the ladies who would dress up in their best clubwear and then add kitten whiskers. I believed that Halloween could only have room for goofy or terrifying costumes. There was no room for bellybutton rings in my Halloween utopia. It’s easy to hate on slutty costumes. They’re lazy! They’re attention-seeking! They’re so easy (pun intended)! And you know what? That’s great! I shouldn’t spend my night grumbling in the corner about a young...

    Germany is known to be a nation with a great sense for perfection. A simple taste of their delicious beers and you'll know what I'm talking about. When it comes to cars, "zee germans" are also a reference in the "milieu": From BMW to Mercedes to Audi, the country has manufactured some of the best and most reliable cars of today. Despite their reputation of seriousness and the cliché of not being credited with much of a sense of humour, they can easily release some fun marketing campaigns, as...
