Nan Kempner

“Nan Kempner, to my eyes, always represented this modern, free, independent, and elegant woman. She is probably the woman who best wore my clothes, with whom I shared the longest and greatest complicity.” 
—YVES SAINT LAURENT


”There is no such thing as a chic American woman…the one exception is Nan Kempner.”- DIANA VREELAND

Fall Trend Watch: God Bless

For fall, numerous designers collections were ripe with divine inspiration; floor grazing black skirts, crisp white button downs, religious iconography, demure capes, and even habits.

Yves Saint Laurent kept this trend modern by adding pops of color, slim pencil skirts, and sky high pumps.

Bottega Veneta’s floorlength, waist-tied gowns mimicked religious robes.

Alexander McQueen’s final collection captured dark age beauty. His fabric was printed with photographs and painting of high-church angels and Bosch demons.

The Row’s fall collection had it’s own biblical references; simple sandals and stark minimalism.
