Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Women - BY TRU­MAN CAPOTE

From the ter­race where in the morn­ings I sit read­ing or

writ­ing I can see the moun­tains slid­ing blue and bluer down the har­bour bay; be­low there is the whole of

Port-au-Prince, a town whose colours are paled into peel­ing his­tor­i­cal pas­tels by

cen­turies of sun: sky-grey cathe­dral, hy­acinth foun­tain,

green-rust fence…

Be­low: a 1971 illustration of the Louis Vuit­ton col­lec­tion fea­tured in Bazaar
