I've always believed that fashion is meant to be classic, timeless, and elegant. Timelessness is the most important thing to me when it comes to what I wear on a day to day basis, or especially when investing in designer clothing. Think about the cycle of fashion, and the things that always come back in style. You see the same classic silhouettes, shapes, and prints time and time again, decade after decade, and that's because they are what look the best and what work the most efficiently visually. Im not saying I don't love a good new trend when it appeals to me, but I put my money into collecting what will be the most wearable and special for years to come. One of my greatest loves in my wardrobe is this handbag by Mansur Gavriel , with the fitting title, the elegant bag. It's a classic, minimal design and structure that i've seen time and time again, and that's exactly why I love it and will love it the same in 20 years. When I create something, whether its an outfit or a photograph, I always ask myself "will this still speak to me in 20 years or more the same as it does today?". I think in all areas of art, fashion, and lifestyle, that's what you should strive for.
