“I start with color as my creative jumping-off point every season—it really helps inform the mood and trajectory,” says Christopher John Rogers, the eponymous designer behind the CFDA award-winning fashion label whose kaleidoscopic knitwear and rainbow-hued eveningwear have made fans of A-listers like Rihanna and Lil Nas X. With inspiration ranging from Ellsworth Kelly and Paul Gauguin to Bert and Ernie, he’s dipping his toe into the world of interiors with a new collection for Farrow & Ball. We caught up with the New York–based whiz to find out what else colors his everyday.
