When this Marie Claire Italia story came out in the October 1998 issue, I tore out every page and pinned them to my inspiration board—I literally thumb-tacked the pages to a cork board over my desk. Twenty years later they are still some of my favorite pictures and the clothes are the epitome of timeless.
As I write this I’m cocooned in sweaters while getting emails announcing that spring/summer merchandise is going on sale. Pre-Fall will be in stores soon. I’d more likely be wearing pieces from the latter right now than the little dresses and sandals being marked down. My point is, like the fall clothes in this story, it’s about buying evergreen items and wearing them even when it’s 50º in May. Truly seasonless dressing.
