The pictures of pieces that are gone are up - I love that. It's not all vastly vintage, just a delicious mix of the pieces you always wanted and somehow let slip through your fingers. The photography is simple, just the way you want to see a garment. It all passes through her editor's eyes and is very personal, many pieces with short stories. The Pauline Trigere soft yellow dress and scarf comes from Ms. Trigere's fit model. Ms Trigere has always been a sort of role model for me in fashion and life - impossibly American casual elegance and her business meant the world to her. But in her earliest days, when just staying in business would have been intensely challenging, she fell in love with a Picasso and it became hers. That kind of passion touched me.
The pieces in order are Ms. Trigere's yellow ensemble, YSL Dali-esque heels (sigh), Christian Dior dress with that nipped in waist and sash, Dries Van Noten's sleeveless print dress, and a Miu Miu (perfect, so perfect) bag.
This is a wonderful world Kate has created. And you are cordially invited ... simply email email@example.com with your reasons for wanting to join. As I have done for the sheer unadulterated pleasure of lounging through some of the memories of fashion.
