“My clothes reflect my passion for beautiful things,” says Thelma Golden, the director and chief curator of New York’s Studio Museum in Harlem and one of the most powerful women in the art world. Golden racks up frequent-flier miles visiting her London-based husband, designer Duro Olowu, and attending exhibitions in such far-flung destinations as Morocco and Senegal. She always packs camisoles and tights from Uniqlo’s Heattech line (from $13); black Minnie pants from J. Crew (from $90); and a careful curation of shoes. How many? “That’s complicated. Let’s just say as many as possible.”
• On view at the Studio Museum through March 10: Harlem Postcards, images from the storied neighborhood.
• “This coat is from my husband’s collaboration with JC Penney ($75).
• Flats, like these from Roger Vivier ($625), are a must. “We’ve all had three-mile hikes in airports.”
• The Large Metro tote from MZ Wallace ($195) is “even bigger than it looks, and has a fabulous shape.”
