Lea T., Closets
Lea T.

Jeffrey Williams, who interviewed Lea for us in Milan, said that he wanted every piece in her wardrobe, and I can see why. Some of the highlights, the consummate Vivienne Westwood pirate boot in multiple color combinations, Givenchy's leopard over the knee boots and black leather drop-crotch pants, that look like a pencil skirt but are so much cooler. Originally from Brazil, Lea adds an indigenous touch to her high fashion taste with her layered suede top from a Paris flea market mixed with slim capris from Ann Demeulemeester. She is polished in an "undone" kind of way - very few people can make a Commes des Garcons pink skirt with stuffed hands at the hip look as effortless as a jean. Lea has been a best friend and muse to Riccardo Tisci, designer of Givenchy, but she is not a slave to fashion and could leave the house in her white boxers and tank top and still stop traffic.
