Name: KrisAnne Madaus Occupation: Print and Digital Production at Vanity Fair Age: 26 Neighborhood: East Williamsburg On Look One:  Shania Twain tee under a white Dries Van Noten men’s button down, AG denim, Calvin Klein booties, and unbranded red leather gloves.

Since rummaging through your coworkers’ bags uninvited is generally frowned upon, I asked three of my colleagues to walk me through what they carry in their day-to-day. Morgan and Chris gave me a look into their Rivendell Mountain...
PHOTOGRAPHY: D.P. Jolly NAME: Jacob Bagwell OCCUPATION: Sales Representative for Rick Owens AGE: 22 NEIGHBORHOOD: Brooklyn Heights It's funny to think about how much clothing can impact an outsider's perspective on someone.
