Accessories Designer

Kendall Conrad

L.A.-based accessories designer Kendall Conrad and I caught up over coffee last week. Stunning in jeans and her own flat sandals, every head turned in Sant Ambroeus to check out the ex model. As a fellow mother of two teenage girls, coffee quickly turned into brunch as we discussed colleges, horses, and our similar lifestyles. The epitome of effortless chic, Kendall kindly shared a few of her cannot-live-without items, many from her own line.

My summer uniform:
Shorts, an oxford cloth shirt from Chance, my One Inch Ring Belt, a linen I Pezzi Dipinti scarf from our collab, my Martingala Sandals, I always wear hoops, any one of my leather cuffs, and I never go anywhere without my iPhone case.

Three beauty musts:
1. For me a hot bath is a total luxury and ritual, so deeply relaxing and a chance to recharge my batteries. I like to multi task in the bath and begin with a sea salt scrub that I make, or dry brushing before I get in. I add Epsom salt for tight muscles and aromatherapy oil from Aromatherapy Associates and some almond or apricot oil to keep from drying out. I rub some Castor oil on my elbows and heels for deep moisturizing. I have a bath tray so I can prop up books so I can read while I relax. Twice a week I will add a face masque to my routine. I like Lerosett mud mask for detoxing and Immortelle for nourishing.

2. Always clean your skin well at night. I use jojoba oil which is the best makeup remover I have found and a hot washcloth, then I slather on La Crème Beauty cream which is amazing!

3. Charlotte Tillbury’s mascara in Glossy Black*Tip: when applying mascara, jiggle the wand at the root of your eyelashes. This coats them and helps to hold a curl better. If you go too heavy on the tips the weight will cause them to straighten faster.

 Latest obsessions:
1. Peaky Blinders on Netflix is SO good! Irish gangsters in Birmingham at he turn of the century, told like a western and amazing soundtrack!
2. GT’s Gingerade Kombucha—my favorite, drink ice cold.
3. And I love bulletproof coffee every morning.

Next destination:
Mexico–Hacienda de San Antonio and Cuixmala.

  • I luckily live walking distance to one of her boutiques and totally adore her stuff. I actually have 3 of the items in the photo, the scarf, the cuff, and the hoops (as well as lots more KC) I have two pairs of her sandals that I wear all the time, and actually went on a trip taking only one pair of her sandals as my only shoe! She’s the epitome of chic, and also extremely nice. Great profile Preston.

  • Loved this feature! I have wanted one of her fringed Franja bags forever, but they are always out of stock online 🙁

  • Absolutely in love with those earrings. And it’s genius to have 14K posts on brass hoops for those of us with sensitive ears.

  • Such amazing style. Love her leather cuffs so chic in a casual way.

  • I love these features, it’s great as it reminds me of articles I read in Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar, but there’s never the same thing online !
