As might be expected from someone so adept at transforming old to new, Yael is also a master at combining her favorite pieces. "I have leather shorts that I wear constantly. We make a full silk skirt called the Mac that I always put on for some added drama, and when in doubt I throw on a shrunken leather jacket. All these pieces can be paired with anything and look good, which is essential."
Inspiration abounds in Yael's studio. At bottom left, a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses and a vintage leather briefcase that Yael often uses as a purse.
