Sofia Coppola Shares Her Summer Essentials

Courtesy of Sofia Coppola

Unique is one way to describe this summer. Any plans we had to get away have been inevitably canceled. Filmmaker Sofia Coppola has been spending quarantine at her childhood home in Napa Valley with her family “and trying to not regress into my 12 year-old self,” she told ELLE.com via email. Combating that regression involves a little rosé , a little writing, and appreciating “being around nature …and cooking!” She’s also been shopping her own enviable archives “for 90’s Marc Jacobs and Alaia.

Meanwhile, her work carries on. Chanel recently released several videos directed by Coppola including a behind-the-scenes look at Virginie Viard’s Metiers d’Art collection from December. And Coppola’s latest feature film, On the Rocks starring Rashida Jones and Bill Murray, is set to be released this fall on Apple.

Ahead, the frequent designer muse shares her summer 2020 essentials.
