Don’t know who Carlotta Kohl is yet? You should. The German-born, New York–based artist and model has that knack for supremely cool yet wearable dressing, and she’s quickly becoming fashion’s newest darling. And, just like us, she’s constantly finding new sources of sartorial inspiration. “I can’t check my style off in one box; I like changing it up,” she tells us. “I’ll see something in an old magazine or film that will make me obsessed with a particular style or item.” Her style inspiration? Grace Kelly, Dolly Parton, Anna Karina–and all things Gucci.
For serial style-chameleons like Kohl, everything is a potential day-to-night piece, even showstopping floor-length silk gowns seem totally reasonable with high-tops to pop down to the bodega. We asked this street-ready sartorial delight to take Gucci’s cruise collection and make it her own—the only rule? Everything had to go from daytime casual to evening-ready knockout. Keep reading for the Gucci-meets-Kohl looks you’re definitely going to want to re-create.
