If you are tired of daily style blogs and are looking for a unique and intriguing fashion blog to follow, look no further than The Coveteur. Designer Erin Kleinberg and stylist Stephanie Mark founded this blog that gives you an exclusive tour inside the heart and soul of the stylishly influential—by way of their closets. Founded in January 2011, The Coveteur was inspired by the film, The Social Network. After seeing the film, the Canadian duo was particularly motivated by the idea that in this day and age of the internet and technology, everyone is a voyeur. They founded The Coveteur on the idea of deconstructing the craze of the street style blog and taking it one step farther to the place where all style begins—the closet.
Along with photographer Jake Rosenberg, the blog delves into a unique perspective of the fashionable elite—there is something particularly intimate and sincere to be seen about one’s personality through their closets. Their posts include photos with a particular still-life quality: inanimate fashion objects creatively styled to portray the personality of each owner. Every portrait is accompanied by a short anecdote from its owner—a small explanation of the piece’s significance. Along with this, Kleinberg and Mark write a short introduction of the host which includes, of particular interest, a list of digital inspiration that lets you delve even deeper into the subject’s style inspiration.
One feature of particular interest is of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel’s apartment in Paris. With beautiful pictures of her homestead at 31 Rue Cambon, this feature is not to be missed. It reveals the space where all her ideas were born and shows her living quarters just as the late designer left them—its numerous bookshelves, Coco-designed sofas and East-meets-West décor.
Declared “Blog of the Year” by NET-A-PORTER in 2011, this blog is the ultimate source of style inspiration and eye candy. The Coveteur delivers you the latest trends straight from those creating them. With an array of beautifully shot photos accompanying a short fashion story, each post covers one of the world’s brightest style stars, ranging from Charlotte Ronson to Anna Dello Russo. Who hasn’t wanted to see the dress collection of Lauren Conrad or the favorite pieces of the Courtin-Clarins girls? With The Coveteur, you can snoop in on all this, without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
