women of style: Patricia Goldman

I don’t remember when I first met Patricia, but I remember her infectious smile and positive energy that could light up a room. We had more than a few people in common and both being Haitian, in Toronto with similar interests (good food, good people, fashion and Paris) I believe we were destined to meet!

I’ve always loved how Patricia always looks effortlessly chic; I remember she once told me that investing in classic pieces can take you a long way in your wardrobe and I agree.

 

Bisous, Winy

Where did you grown up?

Haiti until the age of 15 then, I moved to Montreal to go to school.

How would you describe your style?

I’d say my style is classic with an edge; I don’t really like trendy clothes but a few pieces here and there can be fun.

 

 What are your go-to brands and why?

  • · Jill Sander – the clothes are classic, timeless and it fits great

 

  • · The Row – Love the fit and simplicity of their clothes, still, their pieces are timeless but still very fashionable

 

 

  • · Phillip Lim – Easy wear, fun; from casual to dressy also lots of classic pieces with a twist

 

 

  • · DVF for her colorful dresses and Tops

 

  • · Zanotti for flat shoes most comfortable and stylish details

 

 

 

 


Your favourite wardrobe piece and why?

My shoes, by far!  Whatever you wear, no matter how great it looks, I believe your shoes will complete your outfit.  I usually pick my shoes first than I decide what to wear. My new Charlotte Olympia shoes are currently my favourites.

 The beauty products you can’t live without?

I have very dry skin and Darphin’s Fibrogene cream works amazing for me.  I’ve been using it for the past 15 years and I swear by it.  I also use eye cream by Cle de Peau at night. Finally, the only perfume I use is Angel. I’ve been wearing it since it came out over 20 years ago.

 A beauty secret your mom taught you?

I was told to always hydrate my skin well and protect it from the sun. I use 30 SPF from Clarins for my face and eyes as well.

 

Your Spring / Summer 2012 must haves:

I’m really into adding lots of colours this season; adding some fun colours to my basics. I’ll probably add some yellow to my outfits whether it be yellow sandals, top or jeans for example.

I also love the print pants that Dries Van Noten has designed for the Spring / Summer season.

I like to wear a lot of white during the summer, whether it is a summer dress, crop pants, jeans or shirt.

And finally, the Celine Phantom bag in Cobalt Blue is amazing, definitely a must have this season.
