The idea of this outfit came from a picture of 20-year old Diane when she was studying in the University of Geneva. It was the time when she got introduced to a jet set lifestyle where everyone was “effortlessly beautiful and rich”.
The photo, the pose and the outfit, I felt, really reflected this classy and chic luxury. I found it very exciting to try and recreate the look by using modern pieces with a timeless feel to them.
