Anticipating a travel-filled fall, Lily Aldridge surveys The Apartment by The Line with purpose. The model, wife, and mother is drawn to items that are beautifully made yet flexible, able to go from city to beach, work to play, and back again. She reaches for a large square of striped cotton—handwoven in Ethiopia for Lemlem. “I love a scarf I can wear on the plane and then turn into a sarong when I get to the beach,” says Aldridge. She’ll also wear it with vintage cutoffs (“Nothing is more of a staple for me than a good pair of Levi’s”) and a fresh pair of sunglasses (“I’m obsessed, and Linda Farrow is by far one of the best out there”), layering a cozy Proenza Schouler turtleneck over a tank or tee when the temperature drops.
As a self-proclaimed “serious foodie,” Aldridge will look to leading chefs for restaurant recommendations in the pages of Where Chefs Eat, but upon returning to Nashville plans to focus on recharging. “I love candles all over the house, and lavender is such a relaxing scent,” she says, inhaling the aroma of Maison Louis Marie’s Antidris-Lavender candle. Also present throughout the home she shares with husband Caleb Followill and their three-year-old daughter are fleecy sheepskins, which are “especially nice next to the bed.” Another favorite piece—a game of glances captured by photographer Helmut Newton as part of a 1991 commission for Playboy—requires little explanation. “Helmut Newton meets Playboy,” notes Aldridge. “Need I say more?”
