“The well-dressed woman is not one of the moment but one who has built up through the years a backlog of beautiful belongings. She is at all times aware of the new fashion but greets it knowingly, for fashion constantly changes, sometimes blindly. But a woman of elegance changes gradually and invariably for the better, becoming more beautiful through the years.” - James Galanos, 1954
