Denim jackets and spring are a match made in seasonal dressing heaven. I don’t know what it is, but something about throwing one on immediately brings an element of cool that can’t be beat.
When I finally write that book that’s been sitting on my chest and in my heart for the past ten years, I already know what the dedication will be; “To the women.” I believe the most romantic relationships I’ll ever be involved in are with my female friends. The smallest of gestures from squeezing my hand and asking me to text them when I get home, to insisting on buying my five dollar coffee just because I’ve had a bad week, to showing up on my doorstep with a bottle of wine and cheese for no reason, to long dinners that have no end in sight because we have so much to tell the other despite seeing each other just the week prior.

I was always a fan of Ezra Petronio. He’s probably one of my first influences, when I was a young twenty something and looking at photos in Self Service magazine, that he created with his then partner, Suzanne Koller. I was a kid of the ’90s, and profoundly marked by the new freedom that appeared in fashion, the poetic rebellion and all the generation at work in those pages. Since then, Ezra became one of the most important creative director of his generation, helping craft the image brands that also shaped my eye, from Prada to Chloé to more recently juggernauts like Zara. Ezra is smart, direct, warm, and he has the curiosity I’ve only encountered in visionaries.
Today we’re in his apartment in Paris and we share points of views on the creative process, working with the masters and the world of fashion today. I hope you love Ezra’s mind and voice as much as I do.
