Jan, the executive assistant who sits on my floor always provides the best commentary… bringing the fashionistas back down to earth one gal at a time. When I walked by her desk less visited this morning (she has two) I noticed the most amazing editorial tacked on her bulletin board… The Simpsons Go to Paris with Linda Evangelista circa August 2007 Harper’s Bazaar.
I’m so in love with this collaboration for a few reasons. First of course, it’s The Simpsons, but more importantly, its a collaboration of taste and humor. Fashion can be so serious, catty, competitive and superficial. To me, there’s nothing more refreshing when its relatable to everyone but still chic and luxurious. In my opinion, humor is what facilitates advanced fashion’s relatability to the common folk while still protecting the integrity of its importance and stature to the industry. Enjoy.
