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.

    In light of recent events I feel like the name ''Black Friday'' should be eternally changed to what it should have been called in the first place: "Crazy fucking white people with no moral value who maxed out their "fucks to give" credit card on the Mcdonald's breakfast trio they had before coming here" Friday     I wouldn't go to a Black Friday sale if someone paid me. I mean, I like shopping but then again; I also like being alive. I also live my life avoiding getting into...

    Oh Land's voice melts my little heart with this wrenching song about losing a love and not being able to move on. I wouldn't suggest this video to anyone going through a recent breakup but I will recommend this video to fashionistas everywhere! Free People partnered with Oh Land to create the stunningly sweet video and get suckers (like me) to pine over the adorable wardrobe featured throughout the video. Uhg.  I mean this sweater looks so sleek, fluffy and warm. Need it now.  The...

    We truly found a gem when accidentally falling on a music video by Yuko Yuko recently. This artist is completely DIY and homegrown on the internet.From the indie dream pop style of music, to the analog videos, his whole persona screams authentic late 80s borderline 90s nostalgia. He has a very real vibe to his image, and we dig it. He's been on our radar ever since we posted about him recently, and to no surprise, there's more. Today is the official date of release for his latest EP...

    Looking at today's state of rap and r&b is almost like looking at pictures of distant family from my country, I'm Jamaican by the way. For some reason dreadlocks seems to be the new trend among a lot of artists, well because of how awesome they are of course. Similar to 80's hair metal bands this trend seems to be rap and r&b's 2014 version since so many artists have switched their hairstyle or have had it for a good chunk of their career which we kind of will always refer to them as....

    You know that feeling you get when you land on a really good music discovery? Everyone that knows me know that I am musically varied. I grew up in the Myspace days when emo/punk was a thing and Warped Tour was the Osheaga of our today. Indie became a genre and rock became too soft, hip-hop took over and for a the last couple of years, rock music has tried to make its comeback and failed, multiple times.  Their are only a handful of bands that can achieve mass-appeal, and CHILDCARE is...
