The Hunting Season designer shares her style secrets.

Danielle Corona, a veteran of the Valentino accessory atelier, has quickly made a name for herself with Hunting Season, a line of bags, belts and small leather goods. The collection’s understated, chic take on luxury is a perfect reflection of her personal style. Here, Corona, whose pieces are are available on Moda Operandi this week, shares the secret to her day-to-night look, her favorite stores, and what’s in her diaper bag.

Define your style in three words:
Comfortable, discreet, chic.

Daily uniform:
Alexander Wang high waist jeans. I was dying to fit into them after my pregnancy, and now I wont take them off. I rotate blue and black jeans, always paired with my new Hunting Season croc backpack. As a new mom, keeping my hands free is key.

Greatest hits:
Slim pants, Yves Saint Laurent blouses, blazers and Prada knits.

Preferred footwear:
YSL black ankle boots and Manolo Blahnik Lauratopri suede sandals in all colors.

Finishing touches:
Gold Bulgari serpenti watch, which was my wedding gift from my mother-in-law.

Nighttime look:
Lately, it has been the same as day, just adding heels and a great crocodile clutch. I make them in every color to never get bored.

Best recent discovery:
“The Flashman Papers” by George MacDonald Fraser.

Favorite stores:
Bonpoint baby clothes and MOMA for baby toys; Flair Home collection for home accessories and gifts; Dries Van Noten Paris; Casa Chiqui Cartagena

Style pet peeve:
Someone with no style.

Style icons:
Tilda Swinton and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

Last purchase:
A traditional linen dress I found in Puglia. It’s my new summer uniform.

Lusting after:
Pasta Bolognese from Sette Mezzo in New York.

Favorite haunts:
La Vitrola Cartagena, Quiebra Canto Salsa Bar, San Ambroues West Village, EN Brasserie NYC.

What’s always in your bag:
iPhone 6 plus, Soliel sunscreen, passport, and Honest baby wipes.
