Style Icon: Ada Kokosar

On Our Radar

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.
