The Russian doll was my muse. ... She had a cinched waist and full skirt.

It's odd that a lot of designers were on the Slavic slant.

The white shirt looks fresh and new again; the white shirt is key. It's back for spring in a big way.

I loved the fall collection because it's really luxury for everyday. There are so many different ways of pairing things. You wear rich opulent jackets with a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. It's very versatile if you break the pieces down. You wear an embroidered velvet skirt with a simple sweater and flat boots and you can go walk to dog.
