  • It’s beyond elegant. It’s spare and modern, but somehow also cozy and welcoming. Perfection.

  • Thank you for sharing this AD feature, Preston. I have been admiring these images myself. Ms. Sozzani’s self-assured confidence that was so apparent in her personal attire, not surprisingly extended to her personal space as well. I only wish I had such a clear voice to refine my personal taste. Well edited indeed.

  • I read the article and it choked me up. Such a beautiful,personal, curated space and now she’s gone from it.
