We Love Vogue Nippon Fashion Director Anna Dello Russo!
She chats to New York Magazine about her famous wardrobe..
You still like to dress in complete looks-but from the runway.
I always do that. I make fun of me because sometimes I find me really hilarious, ridiculous. ( we do too!)
How do you care for so many clothes?
Collecting clothes is complicated because the clothes need a space and the right temperature. You really destroy clothes if you leave it there, no? It’s dusty, it’s hot-it ruins the clothes. It’s so freezing in my house! The clothes need to be cold.
What’s the ideal temperature?
Has to be no more than 15 degrees Celsius
What about shoes?
Oh, shoes-another nightmare, because I love the shoes. I have many, many pairs. I have the shoes in a big library-a huge library, everything together. Louboutin shoes, Prada shoes, Yves Saint Laurent shoes, Gucci shoes. Rather than books, you have shoes library.
How many pairs? Hundreds?
How do you pack for Fashion Week?
Oh! Nightmare. I know very well packing, because that was my first job when I used to be a fashion editor and travel around the world. Clothes for me are a religion. I know how to pack, how to make it look good. So many times I see people do wrong thing because they pack in a horrible way and they need more volume, their dress is flat or something.
Where do you store all the clothes?
I have another apartment-two big rooms. It’s next to my apartment, but it’s another one just for clothes.
Do you have a boyfriend?
Yes, but he doesn’t live with me. There is no space because of the clothes.
