Mariuccia Mandelli quotes on fashion and elegance via www.fashionedbylove.co.uk / Photo: Camille Rowe wearing Krizia in En Piste / L'Officiele France December 2013 (photography: Mathieu Cesar, styling: Alexandra Elbim)
"Fashion and elegance do not always follow the same path at the same time. Elegance is a personal conquest born of restrain, gestures, style. Teaching elegance in abstract can castrate creativity. Like teaching novelty at all costs can lead to bad taste."
