The Interrogator with The Coveteur’s Jake Rosenberg

  • Share

Stoking the fires of our collective cravings since 2011, The Coveteur has quickly become one of the most exceptional fashion blogs out there. Founded by Jake Rosenberg, Stephanie Mark, and Erin Kleinberg, the site dives deep into the closets of some of the world’s prominent tastemakers. With a pop and a flash (and a red lip or two), The Coveteur makes good on its promise: You always walk away wanting something.

Bright and distinct, a large part of The Coveteur’s magic is in its photography, the look of which Jake Rosenberg provides. His aesthetic is distinct and clean, every heel and handbag popping with a candy-coated sheen, every image representing a candid, casual glamour that makes the good life look accessible.

Taking a break from his whirlwind, around-the-world schedule, Mr. Rosenberg goes to town on our Interrogator questionnaire, sharing with us a love for movie theater snacks, Neil Young songs, and the best meal you can get in Buenos Aires.
