PICTURE: #10 IN TEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
KATLEAN de MONCHY TALKS ABOUT HER 10TH OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Japanese kimono from the 1940s
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
This is one of the first objects that I really admired and saved to purchase…it is a Japanese kimono from the 1940s..I first had it decorating a wall in my first apartment. I enjoyed looking at it every day. The limoge “quatre saison” coffee cup is a gift from my mother and I really enjoy drinking my coffee out of it, the rose Chanel sandals work well..relaxed and elegant
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I’ve worn this to a black tie affair as I think the color is becoming on me and I like to show up knowing no one is going to be wearing the same thing as me.
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
I like the composition a lot,
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
I don’t think of this as an outfit it is more special than that.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
There is a connection to something that was one of the first beautiful objects that I selected and bought on my own.
