With Mother’s Day just a few days away, we paid a visit to one of the chicest moms in New York City. Julia von Boehm, mother of two, celebrated stylist, and the newly minted Fashion Director of InStyle magazine, welcomed us into her Gramercy Park apartment, where she showed us how to compile a perfect look accented with pieces from Chanel’s iconic Coco Crush fine jewelry collection.
Its latest addition is an 18K gold pendant, available in beige, white, and yellow, with or without diamonds. While playing dress up with the covetable jewels, the Germany native and former assistant to Carine Roitfeld proved that they can be easily incorporated into any woman’s wardrobe, and answered a few of our questions about motherhood, heirlooms, and more.
Read all of von Boehm’s answers and discover the Chanel Coco Crush collection now on the main floor and online at bg.com/chanel. Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13.
