Shop Like a Fashion Insider: Suzanne Koller

Suzanne Koller is an image-maker (she was the co-founder of French fashion bible Self Service), editor (check out her most recent story in T Magazine), and one of the chicest women we know. (No wonder Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller depends on her POV and APC’s Jean Touitou asked her to design a collection.) What’s more, she loves Old Céline and hates having her picture taken. If that isn’t the very definition of stealth luxury, we don’t know what is! 
Describe your style in three words:
Minimal. Classic. With an unexpected edge.
Three favorite brands/designers?
Céline by Phoebe Philo, The Row by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Givenchy by Clare Waight Keller.

Have consignment sites like The RealReal changed the way you think about shopping and dressing? If so, how. What’s the greatest thing about buying consignment?
It certainly has, because I do shop with a different point of view. I find exciting pieces from past collections I may have forgotten about or pieces I missed buying. I am mostly building a wardrobe with obvious classics or great vintage finds.
