Quote of Note | Carine Roitfeld

“More than fashion, I love images, which are not the same thing. In my fashion series, I’m not interested in showcasing the latest bag or collection number twenty-five, but showing what you can do with them and what it can bring to a woman. There is a superficial side to it, but it is a tool to arm oneself to provide self-confidence. I don’t tell people to go out and buy this coat, but I do suggest how they can wear it. I send little messages and use images to make suggestions. I am a link between the fashion shows that everyone can see online and real life. I am the one who makes it wearable by using characters I dream and fantasize about. I’m not a designer, so it’s fascinating to associate with artists.”
