When Susan Ahn moved here as a buyer for Anthropologie, she loved everything about the mid-century modern home she found in Gladwyne. It was, however, lacking in closet space. “My husband has let me take over pretty much every closet in the house for my wardrobe,” she says.
Style: “Casual chic with a touch of forward. My favorite mix is comfort with finesse.”
Designers in her closet: Isabel Marant, Chloé, Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten, Rag & Bone, James Perse.
Most treasured item: “My mother’s diamond necklace that she gave me on my college graduation.”
She has too many: Shoes. “I rarely wear stilettos. The shoes have to be wearable and comfortable.”
Most sentimental item: “A beaded bracelet my daughters made, and jewelry from my first trip to Florence, Italy, where I realized fashion could be a real career.”
Items she can’t part with: “The first Duke sweatshirt I bought in college, and my high school Levi’s.”
Gets the most wear out of: “Isabel Marant everything, Lemlem tunics, a Rag & Bone military jacket, Mother denim, a Marni tote, a Marc Jacobs leather jacket and Converse sneakers.”
Eyeing: “A Goyard Bag and the perfect classic red dress as inspired by Alexander McQueen, Azzedine Alaia and Stella McCartney.”
Prime targets for closet envy: “Elin Kling, an incredible fashion blogger and journalist, who always looks current but not overly trendy. Phoebe Philo is a designer for Celine and one of my favorite designers.”
