Your winter wardrobe Love your winter fashion and look awesome

Age and size are only numbers. It’s the attitude you bring to clothes that make the difference. I like the body. I like to design everything to do with the body. Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it. It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion. I believe in comfort. If you don’t feel comfortable in your clothes, it’s hard to think of anything else.

Delete the negative; accentuate the positive! I love the 2000s because everyone started to love haute couture. It’s sometimes said that I’m rebellious and I do things to push people’s buttons, but I just like the challenge. If I had the power, I would ban leggings. I like the things around me to be beautiful and slightly dreamy, with a feeling of worldliness.

It’s really easy to get colors right. It’s really hard to get black – and neutrals – right. Black is certainly a color but it’s also an illusion. I’m a fashion designer and people think, what do I know? I like things simple. The key to my collections is sensuality. Fashion to me has become very disposable; I wanted to get back to craft, to clothes that could last.

It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion. I never like to think that I design for a particular person. I design for the woman I wanted to be, the woman I used to be, and – to some degree – the woman I’m still a little piece of. I adore the challenge of creating truly modern clothes, where a woman’s personality and sense of self are revealed. I want people to see the dress, but focus on the woman. I feel that things happen for a reason and open up new opportunities. I have my favourite fashion decade, yes, yes, yes: ’60s. It was a sort of little revolution; the clothes were amazing but not too exaggerated.

Grunge is a hippied romantic version of punk. I love the 2000s because everyone started to love haute couture. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. My shows are about the complete woman who swallows it all. It’s a question of survival. Sometimes the simplest things are the most profound.

First I made a dress because I was pregnant and I wanted to be the most beautiful pregnant woman. Then I made a sweater because I wanted to have one that wasn’t like anyone else’s. Comfort is very important to me. I think people live better in big houses and in big clothes.

Go to a place where you’re not going to be stressed, because a honeymoon itself can be a stressful thing. You have to stay true to your heritage; that’s what your brand is about. I have my favourite fashion decade, yes, yes, yes: ’60s. It was a sort of little revolution; the clothes were amazing but not too exaggerated. I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, ‘Marc Jacobs!’ in a French accent. Fashion should be fun. It shouldn’t be labelled intellectual.

Elegance isn’t solely defined by what you wear. It’s how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read. Fashion to me has become very disposable; I wanted to get back to craft, to clothes that could last. I didn’t like the ’80s at all; it was a vulgar moment of fashion. I’ve always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet. Online media is increasingly influential in fashion.

Attitude is everything. Fashion to me has become very disposable; I wanted to get back to craft, to clothes that could last. It’s really easy to get colors right. It’s really hard to get black – and neutrals – right. Black is certainly a color but it’s also an illusion. If I had the power, I would ban leggings. I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now – no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore. (more…)
