ED­I­TOR’S POV JOY DI­VI­SION

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

Fash­ion is many things—an art, an in­stru­ment of self-ex­pres­sion, a multi-bil­lion-dol­lar in­dus­try—but it can be un­der­rated as a source of pure de­light. There’s the thrill of the shop, the soft plea­sure of silk against the skin, or wak­ing up and re­mem­ber­ing anew those shoes and the ex­cite­ment of in­tro­duc­ing them to your wardrobe. Clothes have made me happy since I was a first grader proudly show­ing off my home­made polka-dot dress. This year I’m buy­ing clothes for my first baby—adorable tiny cre­ations that re­veal yet more facets of fash­ion: keep­ers of mem­ory and har­bin­gers of hope. LAURA deCARUFEL
