Effortlessly beautiful with a carefree personality to match, celebrity stylist and Amanu founder Anita Patrickson has an equally easy-breezy style. “It’s funny: Before I became a stylist, I would make a huge effort with what I wore and was really into my wardrobe as a means of expression,” she explains. “Now, I lean toward being comfortable and functional.” Don’t let that practicality fool you: The South Africa native always looks chic. She has a penchant for jeans and blazers (Jil Sander, Sies Marjan, Anine Bing and Saint Laurent are go-to labels), wears made-to-order Amanu sandals six days a week and looks to luminaries like Peggy Guggenheim for style inspo. “She was so fabulous, and I admire the energy and thought she put into her outfits,” Patrickson says. “We need more individuality like that.” This summer, look out for an Amanu pop-up at The Piece Collective in Venice, and come fall, a block heel will launch in-store. Here, Patrickson shares some of her latest lust-haves.

3. “My resolution this year was to consume consciously, which stems from Amanu and has now filtered into everything I do and touch. While $80 might seem a little steep for a water bottle, it encourages me to drink more water and not buy single-use plastics. I have the rose quartz one, which is so pretty!”
