In my last post’s reflexion on fashion and modernity, I came to the conclusion that a femme extraordinaire, in all its simplicity, is beautifully complicated. She’s a woman, a mother often, has a demanding career , a household to manage, she loves to go out and have fun, she’s intellectual and educated, she loves having smart discussions. She hosts dinners and brunch, loves having friends and family around. She loves fashion, she stands out by her own effortless style. She doesn’t need much to be happy, but she has too much on her hands.
It’s for that femme extraordinaire Tiffany‘s new design director, Francesca Amfitheatrof dedicated her fist line, Tiffany T. The pieces’ shape and material are inspired by New York’s energy and bold architecture, while the design itself remains very simple, yet super refined. The multi-disciplined artist aimed to celebrate modern’s women power and lifestyle, through this tribute to their courage but mainly, an opportunity to make them look effortlessly chic, comfortable but also in harmony with their busy lifestyle. I’ve got to see the collection few months ago in Montreal’s flagship store, and again yesterday in a delightful breakfast conversation with Francesca herself and the style celebrity Miroslava Duma. I loved every single piece, probably because I felt related to it (yeaaah, I’m a New Yorker at heart).
The femme extraordinaire is a New Yorker… or not! But one thing is certain, she’s a Tiffany T.
