Metalsmith, martial artist, and aesthetic collector Lucy Kilgore takes us on a tour of her living space and closet in Atlanta, Georgia. Her home is full of beautiful objects, antique and historical wearable pieces, and a collection of literary gems on every subject imaginable. She was kind enough to show us around for our first-ever style profile.
Lucy models a blue silk smoking jacket; vintage Ralph Lauren.
Equestrian gear as decor – a running theme in Lucy's curation.
Lucy shows us an all-time favorite from her personal library: 'Body Jewelry: International Perspectives.'
Antique velvet and lace.
Horse-curb chains, antique silver necklaces, and Afghani jewelry alongside sterling rings of Lucy's own making.
