Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Bazaar - Pho­tographed in Kens­ing­ton Gar­dens be­side Henry Moore’s The Arch (1980)

‘The Arch is a traver­tine-stone sculp­ture po­si­tioned on the bank of the Long Wa­ter in Kens­ing­ton Gar­dens. A fi­bre­glass ver­sion of it ap­peared in Henry Moore’s 80th-birth­day ex­hi­bi­tion at the Ser­pen­tine Gallery in 1978 and it proved so pop­u­lar that he made a lime­stone copy and gave it to the na­tion in 1980. It’s mod­elled on a bone, and I ad­mire its sim­plic­ity. I of­ten look to art for in­spi­ra­tion and I think about clothes in quite a sculp­tural way. By fo­cus­ing my mind on the fi­nal sil­hou­ette, I pre­fer to let the fab­ric cre­ate its own form with­out us­ing too many un­der­pin­nings. I think that’s what I love about The Arch: it is made from one ma­te­rial and stands alone, con­fi­dent.’
