The garments and accouterments we garnish ourselves with are always evolving, and say plenty about us as a society. By now we all know that what we wear can create impressions about our ambitions, emotions and even spending habits. In this, we assume judgement then develop perceptions which in return are solely based on our physical appearance. I suppose the only question to ask would be, what does your wardrobe say about you?
A woman’s closet can foster strong relations by serving as a reminder to ones nostalgic roots and past, communicating an authenticity of its own. Personally as I glance at all the heirlooms I’ve collected throughout the evolution of my style journey I am left with the thought, it’s not a closet I’m standing in, but a moment in time.
I recently had the privilege of exploring the closet of Kaersten Cooper of MARGE Clothing. There is something almost intimate to be said when you step forth into another women’s closet, perhaps its starts with the stories which align with each garment. From a closet filled with couture treasures by Yves Saint Laurent, Pour La Victoire, DVF and of course her personal luxury designs from MARGE, I find her wardrobe is a direct reflection of her exquisite persona. Sharing a moment in her San Francisco open-shelf walk-in closet which ironically resembled the fashionable iconic Carrie Bradshaw of Sex in the City; Kaersten’s wardrobe was a haven of curated vintage and new age couture designs.
You could say it was a couture paradise of one woman’s style journey, as each piece spoke a story, however there was no other story to be told than the one with this Beaver & Mink Yves Saint Laurent Coat. The dominant shape to the sheared beaver sleeves captured my sentimental heart among inquiring interest.
The iconic French Designer, Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” This impeccably French designed fur coat displays a sincere expression of just that, and is something which must be appreciated and carried on.
