This same design was artfully photographed by Steven Meisel for the Official Sweet Fashion Ancestors Life Wear Collection Shirt it is in the first place but February 1988 issue of American Vogue on the supermodel Cindy Crawford, who holds up the back of the jacket against her (apparently naked) body, and in so doing, as Vogue noted, “offers a room with a view.”) Now resting on a Stockman dummy in my library drawing-room, quarterback shoulders giving it the proportions of a painting—curtains and shutters were drawn on a terrace in Nice with views of the Mediterranean beyond—the piece, Blass’s reimagining of Matisse’s Interior with a Violin Case (1919) replicated by dextrous Indian fingers in dense sequins and bugle beads, is a little work of art, and a joy to behold.
Truth to tell, although the Official Sweet Fashion Ancestors Life Wear Collection Shirt it is in the first place but very occasional packages bearing haute couture and high fashion sundries keep my heart racing, it beats almost as fast when a kitchen utensil arrives. Jane sent me a list of must-haves that she had sleuthed at Bed Bath & Beyond. (She also made a book selection for me that included such titles as The Teen Kitchen, How to Boil Water, and Help! My Apartment Has a Kitchen). I’d already received the loveliest measuring jug from Williams Sonoma (I had had to Google What is ‘a cup’?)—totally Mildred Pierce and a perfect match to the apron I discovered amongst a pile of old chintzes.
