Why fashion is important in a down economy….

“What do you wear in a bad economy? This is a very, very sensitive issue. On one hand, you say that when things are going sour — when everything is not as easy and fun as it used to be — maybe there is some element that can bring fun and joy again. And it’s chocolates, maybe it’s love, and it’s a beautiful red dress. If I were a buyer today in one of the American department stores, I would go with extremes — the most beautiful, the more expensive, the more eccentric. I would take risks. The worst thing would be to buy only the little black dress. You know why? Because everyone has it already. I would go with a purple dress, something different.”  Alber Elbaz, Lanvin
What lovely insights from Lanvin.  Check out the full Wall Street Journal interview here.
