Haute Mama

Julia Kalachnikoff

FROM A QUICK SCAN OF JULIA KALACHNIKOFF’S RESUMÉ — STACKED SO-TALL WITH SUCCESSIVE STINTS AT TOP AMERICAN FASHION TITLES — WE SUSPECTED THAT THE ACCESSORIES DIRECTOR HAD A KILLER EYE.

But after seeing her in The Bateau Top, we consider our suspicions confirmed: Kalachnikoff infuses her expertise into her own chic mama style, as much as she does the pages of Lucky Magazine. Scroll-on for more of her insights, aesthetics and her choice HATCH pieces for the season!
MOST MISSED FOOD/DRINK WHILE PREGNANT?
Charcuterie and cheese.
BIGGEST “TREAT YOURSELF” INDULGENCE WHILE PREGNANT?
Acupuncture- I really recommend it during pregnancy. I benefited so much from going regularly.
FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS TO GET YOU THROUGH PREGNANCY?
Argan oil.
WHAT DID YOU HAVE?
I have a boy, Henry.
POLKA DOTS OR STRIPES?
Both!
GO-TO BABY BAG (OR OVERSIZED HANDBAG!)?
I have this LeSportsac diaper bag.
WHAT’S IN IT?
I stay organized by keeping everything in colorful pouches from BAGGU. One has diapers, wipes, Aquaphor, one has feeding stuff, one has a change of clothes, etc. And the best part is you can toss them in the stroller when you don’t want to bring the full diaper bag and travel a little lighter — not an easy task with a baby!
NURSERY PALETTE?
Really neutral even though we knew we were expecting a boy. We have a wall of prints of baby animals from Sharon Montrose’s Animal Print Shop and a furry sheepskin rug that Henry loves rolling around on.
FAVORITE FAIRY TALE?
Although they’re not fairy tales, my favorite books are by Nancy Tillman — especially On The Night You Were Born and Wherever You Are: My Love Will Find You. They are so incredibly sweet.
TOP 5 FAVORITE HATCH PICKS?
I lived in The Afternoon Dress during my entire pregnancy — I had 3 in rotation. I also love (and still wear!) The Everyday Pant, The Premium Legging, The Bateau Top, and The Waffle Turtleneck looks amazingly cozy.
