The difference between style and fashion is quality.
Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future. Fashion to me has become very disposable; I wanted to get back to craft, to clothes that could last. Age and size are only numbers. It’s the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. I believe in comfort. If you don’t feel comfortable in your clothes, it’s hard to think of anything else. I think in the darkest moments, we need a break.
Age and size are only numbers. It’s the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. You cannot be creative with people around you. I love things that age well – things that don’t date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best. The key to my collections is sensuality. I love a black wedding dress.
A woman has the age she deserves. Money is the most corrosive aspect of life today because it means that all attention to detail is forgotten. A lot of self-importance goes on in the fashion industry. I’m not like that. The great thing about fashion is that it always looks forward. When I was young, I lived like an old woman, and when I got old, I had to live like a young person.
