PICTURE: #9 IN TEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
KATLEAN de MONCHY TALKS ABOUT HER 9TH OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
A peplum jacket over a lacey top, skinny jeans, animal print mules and a bowler hat
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I like the yin and yang in life…the black peplum jacket… is fun and adds an interesting proportion to the white J brand straight leg jeans. The Chanel bowler is an exclamation point and so are the Kate Spade animal print mules.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
I put this together spontaneously for our shoot and I love it, so I am going to wear it in real life.
On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
It is an 8. (A whimsical look that is easy to wear in the city and that can be worn to a creative business meeting, or even in the Hamptons for dinner).
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
Fit is always key in any outfit that I put together…the black gets a punch with its visual opposite, and the fabrics don’t wrinkle and can be worn for hours
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
All the time, this is a forever outfit unless I get tired of the peplum for now it feels classic
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?
I feel grandeur and stature from the hat, the heels elongate. I always want to be taller.
