10 Top Westchester Fashion Pros: Daniele Churchill Co-owner of Churchills of Mount Kisco

Daniele Churchill
Co-owner of men’s and women’s fashion boutique, Churchills of Mount Kisco
Fashion role model: My mother—she was a Parisian model before she came to the States and is a very stylish woman. I never even remember her wearing jeans. Personal style: Eclectic—I wear things that I like and mix and match in different styles. Top fall purchase recommendation: The leather jacket has replaced the LBD—every woman should have a motorcycle or cropped fitted style to wear day-to-night in taupe, brown, or black. Must-have fall accessory: Boots of every kind including ankle, wedge, motorcycle, riding, and over-the-knee. Size of footwear wardrobe: About eight hundred pairs of shoes and boots. Size of handbag collection: Seventy-five. Favorite accessory: Faliero Sarti scarves—I collect them because of their beautiful prints and fabrics. Recommended hot trends for fall: Colored fur and printed fur coats, colored denim, and metallics are everywhere. Would love to stage a fashion intervention for: Britney Spears and many of the other young stars—these young women seem to think that baring too much skin is sexy.
Churchill is shown in a silk chiffon snake-print blouse by Brochu Walker ($285), black leather pants by Helmut Lang ($920), a gray Hanro tank top ($120), and black leather open-toe booties by Pedro García ($540). Her jewelry includes black rhodium, gold, and white diamond earrings by Julieri ($2,995). All are available at Churchills of Mount Kisco.
