After the New York Times wrote about people who rent spare apartments for their wardrobes (or keep fish tanks in their walk-in closets), the Cut got curious about how the other half stores their winter clothes. Do they, like us, drag Tupperwares of tank tops and sundresses (and dust bunnies) out from under their beds and replace them with puffy coats? We surveyed the crowd at the New York Academy of Art’s Tribeca Ball last night about their seasonal storage transitions.
Parker Posey: "I have very small closets, so I am forced to keep things moving. I try to donate things I haven't worn, but I’m sentimental towards things that are sometimes just kind of crappy, especially bags that have been places. They don’t even have to be nice, just well-traveled.”
Stefano Tonchi: "You move things around, because you don’t want coats and big sweaters and heavy stuff in your way. We're lucky enough to have a house that has enough closets. I’m lucky enough. And then there is always a closet in Long Island where we put things that we will never use but still [want to keep]. There is this rule: If you have not worn it this winter, why will you wear it next winter? I try to apply that rule, but ...
Glenn O’Brien: "Yeah, I make the seasonal transition. [My winter clothes] go under the bed, or in suitcases packed in the closet."
Chelsea Handler: "What do you think? Negative. No, I have my trusted employees, or my stylist who puts things together for me, and then I always say, 'Screw this,' and walk out in whatever I want. I can’t act like I care too much, because I really don’t."
Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis: "I wish I was organized, but I have stuff everywhere. I have stuff in London, and I have stuff here, and I have my storage in Germany, so I just move a little bit between. I keep track of where things are in my head."
