Ilaria Urbinati was born in Rome and raised in Paris.
She started out in fashion as a buyer for high-end boutiques Laura Urbinati, Satine, and Milk, being the first to bring many top European designers to the west coast. This led to the opening of her own store Confederacy, where she partnered with Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes on her first collaboration–a line of perfectly tailored suits, which were worn prominently by Ryan Gosling’s character in Crazy, Stupid, Love and sold out almost immediately.
She went on to create successful capsule collections for two seasons with Eddie Bauer, a limited edition luxury bag with Montblanc, and another line of suits with Strong Suit to be sold exclusively in Nordstrom.
Ilaria’s celebrity clientele includes some of Hollywood’s biggest names, including Bradley Cooper, Rami Malek, Joel Edgerton, Damien Chazelle, Donald Glover, and John Krasinski.
Her ability to consistently get red carpet clients on every best dressed list led to her being featured on The Hollywood Reporter’s “Most Powerful Stylist” list four years in a row.
She is now the Founder of men’s lifestyle website LEO, named after her son.
