the PRE-RAPHAELITE
BEAUTY in Brooklyn

Brooke Magnaghi

FINE JEWELRY CONSULTANT

She might describe herself as a homebody and a country girl at heart, but that's only a small piece of the puzzle. Yes, she is crafty, loves vintage and is no stranger to bohemian-chic. But make no mistake, she is a confident fashionista, with an eye for both the graphic and the streamlined as well as the delicate and refined. On the scale from extrovert to introvert, this yoga enthoustiast tilts toward the latter—she is understated, down-to-earth and yet still loves a pricey bauble or two.

Brooke Magnaghi supports: Early Childhood Development Center, an organization dedicated to helping the children of imprisoned parents in Nepal , many of whom were living inside the jails.

Chloe Perrin

CREATIVE EDITOR/ Out of Order Magazine

She’s her mother’s daughter—actually, make that a minimalist version of her sophisticated, Old European roots. Confident and fresh-faced with a bit of edge, she loves yoga, avant-garde films, the arts and fashion (basically everything with a liberal arts stamp on it). And for this French-American girl, who's a mix of introvert and extrovert, design matters. After all, her idea of refinement is a cool mash-up of Hermès and Margiela.

Chloe Perrin supports: The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organization for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.

the DOWNTOWN
material GIRL

Deborah Pagani

JEWELRY DESIGNER

She’s an uptown girl who took a turn toward downtown turf. This jewelry designer’s got her avant-garde trendsetting side — with a rock-and-roll bite — and lives her life according to the three Saints. We are talking Saint Barths, Saint Tropez and Saint Moritz, of course. The translation? She is a sun-kissed jet-setter at her core, with a taste for sexy clothes and designers that matter.

Deborah Pagani supports: Polaris project, an organization that works on all forms of human trafficking and slavery and serves its victims.

Kendall Conrad

Founder/Designer Kendall Conrad Designs

Imagine living la vie de bohème in the laid-back environs of sunny L.A.    — and you’ve struck at the heart of this natural beauty, who’s equally at home on the beach surfing or in the country, horseback riding. Her fashion style—cool nonchalance meets tomboy chic—matches the way she entertains: intimate, casual and al fresco. She is easygoing but passionate. In fact, this mother of 2 (who deftly juggles both family and career) defines herself by her heated curiosity on subjects as far-ranging as travel and artists Georgia O'Keeffe and Frida Kahlo to sustainable design to contemporary colloquialisms and Instagram inspiration.

Kendall Conrad supports: Dream Foundation, an organization that helps dreams come true for adults suffering life-limiting illness, and in doing so – improves the quality of their lives in ways medicine alone cannot.
