My Favorite Things

Isolde Brielmaier is nothing short of an art-world force. A former professor of critical studies in Tisch’s Department of Photography, Imaging and Emerging Media at NYU, the author, curator, and historian’s singular sensibility is on display at such institutions as the New Museum, where she’s served as deputy director since 2021, and the International Center of Photography, where she’s mounted ground-breaking exhibitions, including a solo show for photographer Tyler Mitchell and a collection of five emerging Black artists whose work had never before been seen in a museum. As if that wasn’t enough, she also has her hand in fashion, thanks to a position on the board of the sustainable brand Another Tomorrow—and a whimsical wardrobe brimming with statement-making finds. Here, she reveals her sartorial must-haves and more.

Another Tomorrow


Women’s Single Button Jacket

Editor’s Notes:

“Who doesn’t love a great suit? And to have one in a rich fiery red color add new meaning to the idea of a “power suit!” One of my absolute faves.”



Baies Candle

“The classic candle with the most amazing, long-lasting scents. I love Baies (of course) and Rose… So delightful.”

Saint Laurent


Reversible Kate Bag

“The Webster is one of the best shopping experiences—so much variety and such unique pieces, including vintage watches. I love this brightly colored bag. Perfect for that pop of color to break up the NYC black!”



Aries Pleated Open-Back Maxi Dress

“Bergdorf is my go-to place in NYC. They soar above all else in service, luxury, style, and options—I just adore their personal stylists (specifically Randall Perkins!). And they have the perfect art gala dress from one of my favorites: A.LC.”



Super Serum Skin Tint

“Sephora is one of the best vegan beauty brand carriers—I love ILIA.”

Loeffler Randall


Camellia Knotted Metallic Sandal

“Saks is one of my favorite places for shoes—all different kinds of shoes!—like these Loeffler Randall sandals.”



Cabin Plus

“Hands down my go-to luggage for world travel. They are classy, sleek, functional, and long-lasting.”



The Nirva Dress

“A lovely sexy dress perfect for all kinds of art events.”
