In Le Bernardin's kitchen, chef Eric Ripert is full of French exquisite portraits, his silver hair is perfectly combed, and his sharp blue eyes appear bluer against the refreshing white chef coat he often wears. When he gets off work, Ripert's style is simple and relaxed-almost bohemian. He likes simple and tasteful jeans and formal shirts; he will not hesitate to match a sports jacket with a beaded bracelet.
We recently interviewed Ripert and talked about his favorite items in his wardrobe, where he bought his original chef jackets, and where his love for dressing started.
