Anna Wintour has her sunglasses. Jean Paul Gaultier has his striped shirts. Karl Lagerfeld has his robot form. Dumbo has a magical feather that he believes makes him fly.
I have a special spoon I like to use to eat soup, because it is the perfect size.
This list is going to get less and less glamorous as it goes on.
I think everybody has something that they use constantly that defines them. It’s not necessarily a “yes, I wear a white Hermes Scarf every day, my name is Miranda Priestly” thing, it might just be something that you’ve formed a weird attachment to. And it’s not necessarily glamorous. Though it could be – I can’t look at a bottle of Chanel no. 5 without thinking of my Grandmother. By the same token, I can’t look at fuzzy pens without thinking of this girl who used fuzzy, feathered pens all through high school. God, that girl was horrible.
Basically, I don’t think you have to be Anna Wintour to have a thing that makes people think of you. What’s your signature piece?
