Stephanie LaCava is a globally recognized fashion and lifestyle writer who splits her time between New York and Paris. Raised in France, LaCava attended Colgate University and entered the edit world with her in-depth pieces for publications like Vogue and Vanity Fair, before penning her own memoir, An Extraordinary Theory of Objects. We caught up with the whimsical LaCava inside her NYC apartment and were greeted with a full spread of curated candy upon walking through her door – a signature staple of the entertaining habits of Ms. LaCava. “I’m obsessed with colorful candy especially when I entertain,” she says. “And the more old school the better”. Wearing a top by one of our favorites Roksanda Ilincic, LaCava spoke about her admiration for American accessories designers and her great respect for Joan Didion (whom she hosted a party for at her house a few weeks prior to our shoot). But perhaps her most humbling story came in the form of a pair of shiny yellow Doc Martens – something she always had her eye on as a teenager but never actually bought. “It was a really special moment because growing up in France, I had always wanted a pair when I walked around this area, but could never afford them with my babysitting money”. Take a peek inside the colorful and beetle-filled world of the dashing Ms. Stephanie LaCava.
