Diana Vreeland – On Style

Diana VreelandLynn Gilbert1 Comment

"I THINK STYLE IS A totally natural thing. One has standards and through concentration maintains them, that’s all it is. It’s a normal rhythm which covers everything. There’s nothing difficult about anything that is innate. Style is a wonderful thing to have because it maintains you through the way you behave, the literature you read, your life with friends, with children and with your family. Style is always growing and changing, always finding new outlets and interests, of course, particularly through work. I can’t imagine anything more onerous than not having a regular standard, a rhythm, a behavior, and a work."
