WISHES FOR THE RES­UR­REC­TION OF THE HOUSE OF JEAN PA­TOU,THE LEG­ENDARY 1920S FRENCH DE­SIGNER

“Not many peo­ple sing praises for the in­ven­tor of the mod­ern women’s ten­nis at­tire, but I’ve al­ways ad­mired the work of Jean Pa­tou. His designs em­bod­ied the non­cha­lant slack­ness that was the trade­mark of the ’20s. This sea­son, you can see his ref­er­ences in col­lec­tions rang­ing from Gucci to Etro to YSL to Al­berta Fer­retti. With his con­tem­po­rary Coco Chanel, he took women out of un­com­fort­able cloth­ing, and his per­fume Joy is sec­ond only to Chanel No. 5. The com­ing year will hope­fully see a re­vival of his name on the Paris ramps.”
