Cardigan Chic


I was so pleased to hear Bill Cunningham’s recent On the Street audio slide show featuring the latest It item: the cardigan. As a staple in my wardrobe, it’s great to hear I’ve been ahead of the fashion curve. Cunningham, the New York Time’s candid photographer of street fashion, provides commentary that describes the evolution of the trend and its numerous manifestations. “It’s right back to where Chanel started. She took women out of the Edwardian, overdressed like hothouse orchids, and put them into everyday weeds, as you might say…It’s the modern woman stepping out of the decorative bondage of fashion and yet still looking attractive.” Oh, and there’s a nice jazzy intro for each of his reports.
