Quote of Note | Oprah Winfrey

“Les 20 ans de Supracolor by Alber,” a commemorative box of Caran d’Ache Supracolor pencils created in collaboration with Lanvin and it artistic director, Alber Elbaz

“When I was a kid, my favorite gift was the 64 box of Crayola crayons. Even now I get excited by things like that. I was in the Lanvin store in London recently and they had a palette of like 120 different colors of pencils. And I looked at it and thought, ‘Okay, I’m gonna get home and there’s gonna be all these pencils. What am I gonna do with them?’ Now, I don’t know how to sketch anything, but I was excited by the idea of having all these different colors; you could just pick up any pencil at any time and sketch. That’s what [the Oprah Winfrey Network] now feels like. It feels like you can do anything you can imagine—you can create. Anything you imagine you can create. You can give a show to anybody, to any idea, to any concept.”
