It's been awhile since we've done a "Five Questions for Five Pockets" interview. So it brings me nothing but joy that our latest one features none other then celeb stylist extraordinaire, Taylor Jacobson. Taylor has had one hell of a year, what with rising to fame as the indefatiguably, hard-working assistant to Rachel Zoe on her eponymous Bravo reality series not to mention her tumultuous departure.
With her latest endeavor Taylor is proving the age old adage "Success is the best revenge". Adding designer to her multi-hyphenated title, she recently partnered with premium brand Kasil Jeans and has bounced back nicely. Her capsule collection "Kasil + Taylor Jacobson" is the first collaboration involving Kasil's The Workshop, which is a platform for partnerships with young talent in styling, music and contemporary art.
The Fall/Winter 2010 collection, smartly, reflects a little of Taylor's personal style and the line, which is already in stores, has been well recieved with my personal fave being the "Geek" peg leg trouser.
Stylist-cum-designer has got to be the perfect storm of fashion and that makes us all the more ecstatic to bring to you Taylor's answers to "Five Questions for Five Pockets".
1. What was your first pair of jeans?
Vintage Levi's were my first cool pair in 6th grade.
2. Who do you think is the ultimate denim icon?
Denim? That's a tough one. But I know Jane Birkin is my style icon. And she looked good in anything!
3. What do you think is the next hot denim trend?
Inserts are huge. Half denim/half leather…mixing fabrics.
4. What denim trend do you wish would go away?
Embrace all trends. Some trends just do not work for denim.
5. What's your number one rule for denim?
Wear what's comfortable.
