In this month’s Details, Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver delivers his 10 rules of style. While we’ve heard some of these rules before, an interesting one he brings up is that ‘You shouldn’t adapt to what people expect you to wear’. I think that’s an interesting point and one to remember when you get stuck in a style rut.
A couple of his other rules are simply variations of this answer, but it’s always good to know what matters to one of the world’s top designers. I didn’t really understand his last rule where Ossendrijver states that:
“I don’t really like wallets. I prefer that you carry your money in your pocket or put everything in a bag and carry it there. Just keep it simple.”
Surely putting all your money and cards into a wallet is simpler than putting it into a bag?
