Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art. - Frederic Chopin
While perhaps my idea of simple is still influenced by my Italian and Latin heritage, this season became a dance with the artist and the editor in my mind. Not a stitch more than what was needed, yet full license to push a design that was simply more. I've taken great pleasure in the white space- the clean and quiet surround that allows me to appreciate details otherwise lost. We've laid down the theater this season to allow the elegance of classicism and the women I love to dress take their place in the forefront.
