Shirley Kurata

In a recent home and personal style feature, gave a tour of wardrobe stylist Shirley Kurata’s Los Angeles home including her awesome hat and art book collection that would be the envy of many girls. Although familiar with much of her work, I never knew the name of the stylist behind these amazing editorials. Kurata has done styling for such big designer labels as Rodarte, Oliver Peoples, and Peter Jensen, as well as worked with creative individuals like Zooey Deschanel, Miranda July, and Jenny Lewis. With her 60’s mod-style and mid-century modern home Kurata takes me back to my favorite era. From the great mustard yellow couch sitting atop a large wooden base to the Jean-Luc Godard movie posters, I love every detail in this 60’s dream home.

Bonus: A few samples of Kurata’s styling work for editorials. All photography shot by Autumn de Wilde.
