Delphine Krakoff: Designing Woman

Though interior designer Delphine Krakoff prefers to keep the spotlight on her high-profile husband, Reed Krakoff—president and executive creative director of Coach and his own self-titled line—she still shines bright. Before starting her firm, Pamplemousse (“grapefruit” in French), the Parisian-born-and-educated businesswoman worked for luxury design houses Vuitton, Dior, Coach and Polo Ralph Lauren. But Reed remains her primary fashion influence, and her best-dressed moment is, she says, hands down, “the first time my husband made me a dress.” For vintage, she swears by Scarlett on rue Clément Marot in Paris. “My absolute favorite!” she gushes. Her cautionary advice: “Don’t dress head-to-toe in the latest collection of a given designer to try and look like a page in a magazine.”
