Elegant Honesty

The elegance of honesty needs no adornment.

Mary Browne

I get excited by the word elegant.  Some misconstrue its meaning as snobby and pretentious, whereas the true meaning is connected to things that are natural and simple.

el·e·gant| ˈeləɡənt | adjective  (of a scientific theory or solution to a problem) pleasingly ingenious and simple: the grand unified theory is compact and elegant in mathematical terms. The quality of being pleasingly ingenious and simple; neatness.

Recently a very outdoorsy and athletic client chose elegant as a word that fit her personal style.  Why? Because elegant for her meant neat, simple and effective.

As we curated a wardrobe together, she found herself drawn to fine fabrics and classic styles.  She never expected to love pieces from brands that were simple in their design, but it made sense because she didn’t like anything in her closet previously and the majority of it was patterned, grey and black and very stylized.  And, it was exciting to see her step through a door into a wardrobe that reflected her real self.

This week I want to introduce you to Hugo Jacomet.  If you don’t know Hugo, you will love his beautiful Parisian accent and his knowledge of all things sartorial, bespoke and elegant.

Enjoy!
