What began as a website that played to our voyeuristic side, letting us peek into the designer-laden digs of tastemakers, The Coveteur has evolved into a more varied chronicle of all things behind-the-scenes. From lifestyle to fashion to culture, this site examines the creative process, inspiration, and influence of the individuals who are defining our times.
The folks over at The Coveteur love playing to our voyeuristic side, and each week, the OG closet invaders will let us peek into the designer-laden digs of their — and our! — favorite tastemakers. Just one warning: The lust-worthy displays may cause an undying impulse to hang your jewels on your kitchen sink’s faucet. Now, let the swooning begin!
“If I go out and someone wonders, ‘WTF is that creepy little boy doing at the tents and where is his mom?’ then I done good,” Lucky
's Laurel Pantin told us.
It's hard to be creeped out by Pantin. In fact, upon seeing her in the flesh, her striking pale dewy skin, giant doe eyes, and bleached blonde pixie cut (she dyes it herself!) is more likely to take your breath away than send you running in the opposite direction. Pantin’s striking tomboy-meets-Edie Sedgwick look captivated our hearts long ago and getting to hang with the girl, while double fisting post-work beers, made it all too good to be true. But don’t expect her to agree; she’s way too humble. RELATED: Shop Geri Hirsch's Enviably Chic Closet!
Pantin’s all about the all-white-everything look; she wears white better than most people. And, let’s be honest, that’s no easy feat! Though the girl definitely loves a good sparkle (her closet is filled with shimmery pants, shiny bags, clutches, shoes, you name it), she says her style is more “hillbilly" "construction-worker."
We popped open a few beers — hey, it was happy hour! — and got down to digging through her goods.
