We look our best in subdued colors, sophisticated cuts, and a general air of sleek understatement. When I was young, I lived like an old woman, and when I got old, I had to live like a young person.
Men have got more of a discerning eye. They appreciate cut and details, things that aren’t so obvious. They like things that have cachet and gentlemanliness. Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future. My shows are about the complete woman who swallows it all. It’s a question of survival. We look our best in subdued colors, sophisticated cuts, and a general air sleek understatement. There is always an emotional element to anything that you make.
