Fashion can do without luxury - you see it in TopShop and Zara. Lux without fashion also, in principle, feels good. In New York, for example. Here comes the uptown girl - with a ponytail, beige trousers, a blue jacket and a Birkin bag. And wherever there is "old money", there are older women with well-styled hair and white tights. They are also luxury, and what a luxury! This is a lifestyle - vintage cars, expensive cashmere sweaters, closed educational institutions. But not it-girls. It-girls are a temporary phenomenon, and luxury is a classic.
But fashion is more interesting. Although more difficult. She always offers something, and you have to constantly choose based on your mood and complexion. I try to look at myself from the outside - very honestly. After all, fashion is changeable, I will never catch up with it, this is an illusory world. But you can have time to take something from her for yourself. At the age of 17, I started to understand how it works. I was engaged in PR in the Russian Gold company. At the shows in Paris, I watched who came in what, what they combined with what. This is also education. Fashion magazines exist for a reason.
Clothing is a way to present yourself adequately to the situation. Therefore, the dress code soars above both fashion and luxury - it is much more important. If I know that today I will have a meeting with an official at the mayor's office, for example, I will dress in accordance with the dress code "business suite" that he understands. I'm not going to impress him. And I remember that for a man a "well-dressed woman" is not always a "well-dressed woman." It is enough if he thinks: "Here comes a young business girl." But the suite has its own hidden signs. The most striking example is the bags of Queen Elizabeth. By the way her Launer bag is worth, you can tell what the old lady has in mind. If she puts her on the floor, then she is ready to communicate. If the bag is on the table or on your lap, it is a sign "The conversation is over!" Birkin also gives signs - she reports on the income of its owner. You shouldn't be ashamed of thiswe have such rules of the game in business in Russia. In life, it also happens that the last money is spent on a bag, luxury bluff is a good technique, many people use it. Clothes are a tool that gives confidence.
But I have a special form of business, so I follow fashion in almost any situation. And if I didn't work in the fashion industry, I would still dress the same way. Women are more interested in fashion. There is too much purity in the suite, in my opinion. And fashion has a nerve, it is a very unstable environment - but girls are emotional, in such an environment as fish in water.
While fashion is closer to me. Maybe this will change with age, but not a fact. My mom settled on a suite, but I belong to a generation that absolutely doesn't want to be an adult. And the suite is still a very mature story.
