New York-based fashion designer Reed Krakoff is both a master of modern American luxury — his chic ready-to-wear line is a go-to for women seeking understated glamour — and a formidable presence in the world of art and design. Which is why we asked the three-time CFDA Award recipient to kick off the 1stdibs holiday season by serving as this week’s Saturday Shopper. On the whole, Krakoff’s choices reflect his wide-ranging, deeply engaged approach to collecting. It was with this in mind that we asked Krakoff to hone in on a smaller list of items from his full collection to explain why several pieces—including a vintage Van Cleef & Arpels ring and a chair by Ron Arad—deserve a closer look (espeically with the holidays right around the corner!). Read on to learn more about the designer’s favorites, and use the as a jumping off point to create your own holiday wish list.
