Editorial Director of Obsessee

An early discoverer of Industry Standard, Naomi Nevitt is the American embodiment of Japanese minimalism. With so much talk of “uniform dressing,” Naomi is truly loyal to her look – mock necks, stripes, and of course, classic denim in the form of the Margot Highrise. She is a master of the millennial domain, having worked as an editor at Teen Vogue, Refinery29, and now Obsessee, a social media-based lifestyle publication for Gen Z. She’s the shopping guru to millennials, and yet, has a studied and intentional approach to dressing and design. Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe and Cy Twombly, and a declared hater of self-deprecating memes, she is the oldest soul we’ve ever met.
