My Favorite Things

Long before “quiet luxury” became the sartorial trend du jour, CO’s Stephanie Danan was thoughtfully perfecting subtle, sensible silhouettes. Now, as the L.A.-based womenswear brand celebrates its 10th anniversary, the Moroccan film producer turned designer is extending her reach with a new sprawling store, Paris atelier, and collection of foundational footwear. Below, Danan shares her essentials, all of which are as enduring as her designs themselves



Concept Planner Midnight

“I write everything down. I cannot use a digital calendar. This planner is genius.”

Victoria Beckham Beauty


Satin Kajal Liner

“Black eyeliner is very Moroccan (my original roots). I find this one to be the best on the market to outline my eyes when I occasionally decide to wear makeup.”

Sophie Buhai


Baroque-Pearl Collar Necklace

“I have so many pieces from Sophie’s collection, but this pearl necklace is my favorite. I can dress it up with a simple black dress or dress it down with a white T-shirt and jeans.”

Simone De Beauvoir


The Ethics of Ambiguity

“This book is by my bed in my Paris apartment. It’s appropriate to read in this day and age—and certainly in Paris.”



Dropped Shoulder Trench Coat in Cotton

“I love the oversized feel of this classic trench coat. It gives any outfit a great attitude.”



Q3 Compact Digital Camera

“This is my dream camera. It’s next on my list.”

Augustinus Bader


The Rich Cream

“I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but I moisturize constantly. This cream is essential to me. It makes my skin glow.”

Christofle by Michele Oka Doner


Palmaceae Silver Brooch Pendant

“I had the honor to spend time with the artist Michele Oka Doner. All of her work is breathtaking to me. I have a few pieces from her collaboration with Christofle.”



Feu De Bois Candle

“Diptyque’s Feu de Bois scent is my favorite. It makes me feel like I’m in a cabin in the woods.”

Encens Magazine


Spring/Summer 2023

“I love the styling in this magazine, which comes out twice a year. It is a major part of my inspiration when I start designing our collections.”



Tank Normale Large Model 1973

“My vintage Cartier Tank was given to me by my mother who wore it in the 70s. I love both the design and sentimental aspect of this watch.”

Afra and Tobiai Scarpa


Soriana Sofa

“When my parents moved from Morocco to Montreal they stopped in Italy and bought this couch, which was in my home growing up. My father kept it and then gave it to me when my son was born.”
