we love whisper-soft cashmere and chunky wools. The glint of diamonds in a sea of roughly hewn silver. We love a great-fitting jean that doesn’t scream designer, and perfectly cut jackets that shave inches off our waists. We love Porto and Prairie Underground, Rundholz and Re-Set, James Jeans and James Perse. Our Japanese designers make us swoon – pas de Calais, Grisal, As Know As – and our favorite Europeans force us up again – Cotelac, Humanoid, Deca-Paris, Mado de les Autres. But we only love those who work for our figures, not against them!
