Savoir-faire. Quality. Elegance.

 

I’m not sure that these images are exactly what I would put on my mood board, but they show classic lines, quality fabrics, and a sense of maturity. Savoire-fair, even.

Not fancy. Not ostentatious. Quietly on top of things.

Savoir-faire is my Word of the Year. I want my self-presentation to show that — while I may have a lot to cope with this year — I am doing so with competence and grace.

Savoir-faire, in fashion, also means craftsmanship — literalyl how it’s done. I plan to do a good job of making those jackets and to incorporate some fine handwork.
