The Envelope Clutch

I like to think the envelope clutch came to fruition by way of stylish women on their way to the post office carrying an actual envelope.

Success in Style: Joseph Altuzarra

I’ve always been impressed by anyone who can draw longevity from instant success. I’ve also always had a thing for Joseph Altuzarra. And not just because he is French and an absolutely delightful person, but because his designs don’t only speak to the fashion woman, they are for every woman, at every age of their life.

I was so happy to meet with him at the MATCHES event, at the occasion of MATCHESFASHION.COM 30th anniversary, in New York. It was quite the wonderful event, with a wonderful crowd. Thank you MATCHES FASHION and your amazing team for collaborating and making this happen in a most elegant way! And now, meet Joseph!

I’m fairly new here at the Atelier as most of you loyal readers already know… When I met Garance last November, I had been working in a male dominated industry for a decade and deciding to take a totally different job in an office full of women was no small deal for me. One advantage I hadn’t really considered was how free I would finally be to talk about my period. I spent 10 years pretending I didn’t have them, feeling like shit 3 days a month and not really feeling comfortable telling my boss or my coworkers why. Being able to tell Emily and Nat that I have cramps and a migraine and it’s because I’m menstruating, and knowing they understand, has changed my professional life. In the spirit of the great feeling that comes with being open about your period, a select few in the Atelier are discussing their symptoms and dispelling, or accepting, some of the stereotypes about the very thing that defines us as women.
