“Tell me about it, stud And with that line, it wasn’t just John Travolta’s high-school-aged Danny Zuko who got chills—the whole world went wild as they watched Olivia Newton-John undergo a complete transformation from innocent, twinsets, and calf-length-skirts-wearing cheerleader Sandy Olsson (with the perfect ponytail)—into an utterly “electrifying” bombshell with big blonde hair, bright rosy lips, and spray-on leather trousers. Few character makeovers have had quite the same impact as that sex bomb, black leather and spandex reveal at the end of the 1978 hit film, Grease.
Although the setting for the movie Grease is 1950s Los Angeles, the movie was filmed in the late 1970s. Olivia Newton-John’s famous look in the final scene was a glimpse into the future. Liquid spandex-style pants, high octane hair, biker jackets, red lips! Kate Bailey, a senior curator at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, notes, “It throws us into the bold, empowered dressing of the 1980s… The ’70s (were) a time when women were wearing pinafores and flares. [This outfit] is marking a moment in the story of Grease, but it’s also a fashion statement. It really goes ahead of its time.”
Gianni Versace also had a flair for bold fashion statements. Senior editor Brooke Kelly Murray and contributor Alexander Hankin write about the extraordinary Italian designer 25 years after his death. Versace revolutionized fashion with his ultra-glamorous, and often theatrical creations. During his 1995 couture show, Versace concluded the runway by introducing Kate Moss, the It girl of the decade, in a sparkling mini-dress and veil, embodying the spirit of modern brides everywhere. Versace’s fabled mansion, Casa Casuarina, is still one of the most visited landmarks in Miami—glamour and tragedy forever intertwined.
Another legendary Italian designer, Valentino Garavani, once said, “There are only three things I can do—make a dress, decorate a house, and entertain people.” The 90-year-old maverick certainly knows how to make a dress. In the fashion world, “red” and “Valentino” are synonymous: the iconic hue, entitled Rosso Valentino, has been the legendary Italian designer’s signature since the debut of his first collection in 1959. Jared Brill reviews Assouline’s Valentino Rosso, a 12” x 15”, 316-page tome illustrating the House of Valentino’s unparalleled connection to the color red.

Irving Penn was one of the twentieth century’s great photographers, known for his arresting images and masterful printmaking. Despite being celebrated as one of Vogue ’s top photographers for more than sixty years, Penn remained an intensely private man who avoided the limelight and pursued his work with quiet and relentless dedication. His refined, minimalist approach ramains a timeless inspiration to this day. Above, Penn captures model Samantha Jones dressed in an apple-green chiffon dress by Shannon Rodgers for Jerry Silverman, paired with earrings by Pakula, and coiffure by Kenneth (Manhattan’s poshest hair salon at the time), for Vogue in 1967.
Anjelica Huston The actress and director once said, “My biggest ambition is never to be bored”.

It seems the second child of film director John Huston has remained true to her ambitions. Above, the model (and future actress) poses in a Calder necklace in New York in 1976.1.

Twiggy burst onto the scene in 1966 at just 16 years old.

The One That We Want: Dame Olivia Newton-John
Ever since her starring role in 1978’S GREASE , Olivia Newton-John has been the one that we wanted—or, the one that we wanted to be. It’s been 45 years and generations (and generations) of teens continue to be Hopelessly Devoted to the smiling, sweet chanteuse with the Australian accent…
Newton-John was born on September 26, 1948, in Cambridge, England. She was the third child of Irene and Brinley Newton-John. (Irene was the child of German physicist Max Born, who won the Nobel Prize “for his fundamental research in quantum mechanics, especially for his statistical interpretation of the wavefunction.”) In 1954, The Newton-Johns relocated to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, where Brinley was posted at the University of Melbourne’s Ormond College. During World War II, Brinley (who had studied German) had been a MI5 officer in the Enigma codebreaking unit at Bletchley Park.
In 1964, teenaged Olivia received first place in a singing competition with The Sydney Morning Herald . The April 27, 1964 morning paper read: “A Wollongong singer and a Melbourne schoolgirl are the winners of a teenage quest on the Sing, Sing, Sing program.” The prize was a ticket to England on the Sitmar Shipping Line (one of the program’s sponsors). NewtonJohn moved to London and recorded her first single—Jackie DeShannon’s “Till You Say You’ll Be Mine”—in 1966.
In Europe, she had limited success while performing with duo Pat and Olivia and group Toomorrow (which released an English, space-themed musical called Toomorrow in 1970 and two singles). She transitioned from pop to country in 1971, thanks to the urging of Cliff Richard (and John Farrar and Bruce Welch, from Richard’s band The Shadows). In 1974, “Let Me Be There” earned her a Grammy award for best female country vocal performance. And 1975’s “I Honestly Love You” earned NewtonJohn a Grammy award for record of the year and best female pop vocal performance.
“I Honestly Love You” also secured the Country Music Association’s award for Female Vocalist of the Year. Some seemed to dislike the Australian’s success in Nashville. Newton-John has

remembered: “I was traveling and touring, and I heard about it after, and heard that Dolly [Parton] and Loretta [Lynn] had backed me up, so I had great support.”
In 1975, She moved to Los Angeles, California, recording songs like “Have you Never Been Mellow.” Soon, Newton-John discovered lasting fame in 1978’s Grease , starring as Sandy Olsson to John Travolta’s Danny Zuko. Producer Allan Carr had considered actresses like Carrie Fisher for the role before being introduced to Newton-John during a dinner hosted by Helen Reddy (who sang “I Am A Woman”).
Newton-John was 29, so she paused before signing on for the role of the teen—especially considering that Travolta was only 23. “I was very conscious of my limitations” explained NewtonJohn of her willingness to accept the part. She received $125,000 for her unforgettable performance… Even when Grease grossed $396.3 million.
But Grease ’s success was never guaranteed. A Vanity Fair article (January 26, 2016) recalled: “The slapdash production, mapped out in five weeks and shot over two months, was given a
“I believe love is what makes the world go round. No matter how old or young, love is why we are here. It is the very essence of one’s being...”
modest $6 million budget by Paramount C.E.O. Barry Diller, who dismissed the whole thing as so much cinematic cotton candy. Its leading lady was foreign and untried, its cast was too old, its score uneven, its choreography and staging more often than not thought up on the fly. Its supporting cast was made up largely of a ragtag cluster of 1950s has-beens, and its second lead actor was a wild child who would later die of complications from drug abuse.”
Few would argue that Grease wouldn’t have been Grease without Newton-John’s Sandy. Remembering the character’s film-defining transformation from cheerleader in white sneakers to Pink Lady in black spandex, Travolta has said (in the same Vanity Fair article): “I thought it was the bomb. She was like Marilyn Monroe mixed with some motorcycle chick. The mix of that, I knew, was going to be outrageous. In the play it was a laugh. In the movie, it was like, ‘Wow!’”
Following Grease , Newton-John starred in 1980’s cult classic Xanadu , a musical film that remixed a 1940s fantasy about a Greek muse in Los Angeles with late 1970s music and style— infused with roller disco. It even included a cameo from Gene Kelly. The film resulted in some hits for Newton-John, including “Magic” and “Xanadu.” And in 1981, the Australian chanteuse released “Physical,” which received a Grammy

award for video of the year. It remains a 1980s sensation—Newton-John even reprised it on Glee in 2010 with Jane Lynch.
In 1984, Newton-John married actor Matt Lattanzi, who she started dating while Filming Xanadu . The couple welcomed Chloe Rose Lattanzi on January 17, 1986, before divorcing in 1995. In 2008, the star married John Easterling, founder and president of the Amazon Herb Company (whom she met in the mid ‘90s) in an Incan spiritual ceremony in Peru, followed by a legal ceremony nine days later in Jupiter Island, Florida.
In 1992, Newton-John was first diagnosed with breast cancer. She channeled this experience into founding the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (which researches cancer and plant medicine) and launching the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. After being awarded OBE in 1979, she was named a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II in 2019 for her services to charity (she raised hundreds of millions of dollars), cancer research, and entertainment.
Newton-John died on August 8, 2022. The performer, who Rolling Stone once called “a sweet, innocent, ’70 version of Doris Day”, has corrected those who called her “Miss Goody Two-Shoes from Australia” by saying that she was, actually, “Miss Goody Two-Shoes from England.” Perhaps, it should’ve been “Miss Do Good”—because as talented as she was in music and theater, Dame Olivia Newton-John had quite a knack for giving back.
The North Face , Gucci, Rossignol, Balmain, Moncler... too many to count. Ski culture has created a new avalanche of designer skiwear brands and styles. Skiing has always been considered something of sport for the elite, with mountains notoriously hard to get to, admission and lift tickets pricey for most, and multitudes of equipment required. Now, more recently, even the clothes are tailored for this class of adventurist.
Clockwise from top left: A Moncler advertisement from the 1980s; a look from Moncler’s Fall/Winter 2022 Collection; skiing in Lake Geneva; vintage ski shot, circa 1910. Opposite page, clockwise from above: Diana, Princess of Wales in Klosters, 1986; Grace of Monaco, Prince Rainier, Albert and Stephanie on a skiing holiday, 1960; Roger Moore poses as James Bond on the set of For Your Eyes Only , Greece, 1981.
Ski outfits for the late 19th century and early 20th century were made simply of wool and durability trumped style. Women were seldom seen on the slopes, but those who did brave the elements did so donning heavy clothes and long skirts. It was not until the 1920s and 1930s that women’s style evolved, and female ski pants began to race down the mountains. With World War II came the boom of the modern commercial ski industry featuring new synthetic materials and the beginning of fashion in the industry.
One of the early pioneers of cold couture was Maria Bogner. In the 1950s, she introduced the concept of the stretch pant for women in skiwear the first time a feminist was brought to the industry. Bogners’s designs quickly caught the ski world’s attention and on a 1955 trip to Sun

Valley, she became a name known to all Americans. She was subsequently named designer for the 1956 Olympic Team USA uniforms.
Around the same time, the Gore family was developing a new breathable waterproof fabric that allowed for greater performance and versatility in the sport. The material became known as Gore-Tex and is still a feature of all high-end skiwear today.
The 1950s also saw the birth of another brand that would go on to become the epitome of ski luxury: Moncler. René Ramillon and Andrè Vincent began their company in Monestier-de-Clermont, a mountain village near Grenoble in France. The duo pioneered a high performance down jacket
that gained real attention on the athletic bodies of the French ski team in 1968. The brand dominates designer ski apparel to this day.
The 1980s saw the growth of mass consumerism of designer goods and with it came the intersection of design and skiwear. Known for its dayglow colors, sexy onesies, and tight fits, skiing had officially transformed into as much of a recreational sport as a fashionable one. Since then, stores like Chanel, Dior, and Prada have opened in ski towns from Gstaad to Aspen. Prada was one of the early adopters with a permanent ski line in the early 2000s. More recently, in 2018, Chanel launched its annual ski line with Coco Neige. Other French houses like Dior and Louis Vuitton have now made not just ski apparel but actual skis, snowboards, helmets, goggles, and boots for their winter collections.
In addition to apparel and accessories, ski shops have been transformed into luxury experiences. Gorsuch, which has been in business for more than 50 years, dominates the American high-end ski market. As a destination, its shops are akin to stores on Madison Avenue and Rodeo Drive.
Skiing today is just as much about fashion and luxury as it is about functionality if not even more so the former. ◆
The Signature Reds of Maison Valentino
Given the many ways fashion houses constantly reinvent themselves, it becomes difficult to carry any particular association for too long. Perhaps one designer overcoming that trend is Valentino, whose bold and symbolic use of red has characterized its runway shows for decades. This signature use of red is the focus of Assouline’s newest release, Valentino Rosso, which explores the bold visual imagery of the fashion house.
Its usage dates back to the founder, Valentino Garavani, whose 1990 trip to see the opera Carmen in Barcelona would prove decisive to the future of the maison. “All the costumes on stage were red,” he said at the time. “The women in the box seats mostly wore red dresses and stood out like geraniums on the balcony, and the chairs and curtains were red I understood that there was no better color after black and after white.”
Now, the current creative director of Valentino, Pier Paolo Piccioli, has continued to embrace this signature style of the house he has managed since 2008. “I love the signature red of Valentino,” said Piccioli, “but I do like it not just as a symbol of
power and glamour, but as something personal and romantic. Giving red new perception it’s a good thing.” To Valentino, red is more than just a color, it is a good luck charm. It is a reminder of the vitality and the allure that defined his childhood in Lombardy, Italy. This allure, all unique to Valentino, has shaped how the maison uses red in unexpected ways. The brand is known for its use of bright, bold reds that are not typically seen in traditional fashion. Its usage spans a wide range of different materials and fabrics. The brand has incorporated red into everything from silk and satin to leather and denim, infusing a sense of versatility and flexibility around the color red. The brand is known for using red in everything from classic, timeless pieces, to more modern, avant-garde designs-making it more appealing to a wider range of

customers. The house makes the bold sophistication of its signature red as accessible as it can be without sacrificing the luxurious design the atelier is known for. Its power is obvious and flashy. “Red is a physical stimulant” color, adds consultant Katie Smith. “It’s invigorating, intimidating, and it’s never boring.”
For Valentino, red is more than just a motif or a popular selling product. For co-founder Giancarlo Giammetti, it is far more personal. “Most of our statements came to be because we are romantic,” he said. “We don’t like to throw away things we like or that bring good luck.”
With the book’s countless examples of Valentino’s striking and varied reds, one of the maxims of its creation becomes self-evident: Being yourself is the coolest thing you can do. ◆
Twenty-five years after his death, Gianni Versace’s legacy lives on in Miami.
The Versace Mansion is perhaps one of the most recognizable establishments in not just South Beach but also the Greater Miami area. The former home of legendary fashion designer Gianni Versace has come to embody the allure of Miami. A place known for hedonism, scandal, and sex appeal, The Villa Casa Casuarina—the true name of the property—is still one of the most visited landmarks in the Magic City.

The home itself was built in 1930 by Alden Freeman, an heir to the Standard Oil Trust. Freeman tapped Hubbell & Hubbell for the construction of the property, and acclaimed 1920s architect Addison Mizner, who has been credited with virtually creating Palm Beach. Freeman died in 1937 and Casa Casuarina went through several owners in the years that followed—at one point in the 1980s, it was known as the Christopher Columbus Apartments. In 1992, while on vacation in Miami with his family, Gianni Versace visited Ocean Drive and was instantly enthralled by the home. Later that year, he would purchase the property as well as the lot next door, allowing him to add a gar-
den, the South Wing, and the famed pool adorned with Italian mosaic tiles. Following extensive renovations, and only five years later, Versace was tragically shot and murdered on the front steps of his home—the target of serial killer Andrew Cunanan. The Versace brand, beloved by everyone from Princess Diana and Demi Moore to Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, was passed down to his sister Donatella Versace, who still serves as Creative Director today. This past summer marked the 25th anniversary of the designer’s death. His legacy and impact on Miami live on. Miami was on the decline in the ’80s, characterized by crime and anguish wrought by the Mariel boatlift of 1980, which led to mass

and helped revitalize the city. He’s been credited with creating South Beach’s energetic gay community and regaining the fashion industry’s interest in Miami—putting it back on the map and stimulating the local economy. During the late ’80s and ’90s, South Beach’s Ocean Drive became known as an unofficial runway and prime destination for photographers hoping to capture model-esque figures strutting down the iconic street. Photographer Doug Ordway was one of those on the scene. Ordway worked closely with the Versace family from 1990 until the designer’s death, bringing to life Versace’s notable campaigns and partnering with him on South Beach Stories, a photobook released by the designer and his sister Donatella in 1993 as an ode to the city they loved.
“Gianni Versace was one of the most inspiriting people I’ve had the opportunity to work with during my career,” says Ordway. “His inspiration came from everything around him… classic artwork, punk rock musicians, beautiful women! Gianni believed in me and what I could do as a young photographer. He had fallen in love with Miami and wanted to incorporate his fashion into the rawness of 1990s South Beach. So, I left Milano for Miami, and this was the beginning of South Beach Stories.” Together with Donatella, Ordway aimed to
highlight everything in Miami that inspired Versace’s designs—they explored all areas around South Beach, from Key Biscayne to Fort Lauderdale, spotlighting Versace’s fashions alongside the beauty of Miami. “We photographed groups of tan men wearing bold Versace prints on the beach, palm trees, local celebrities, retirees, kids on the street, beach dance parties, gay strippers…all that was South Beach at the time! His last request was to bring the beautiful women he adored into the mix. We returned again with Christy Turlington and Kate Moss and photographed them with local men that they grew to revere. Think red jumpsuits skating on Ocean Drive, nighttime group shots in the Raleigh Hotel swimming pool, evening drinks at The News Cafe. This was the beginning of the Gianni Versace influence on Miami,” explains Ordway.
Although Ocean Drive is a far cry from what it was during the heyday of Versace, the Mansion still draws throngs of tourists to its Medusa Adorned gates each day, now functioning as a hotel and restaurant. While the glory days of the palatial home are behind it, The Versace Mansion and its glamorous images from the ’90s will live on for generations to come. Ordway is currently launching a website (versaceunseen.com) to bring the iconic imagery he and Donatella created into the fine art market, so all can enjoy the works in their own home. u
The best of the SpringSummer 2023 haute couture shows in Paris.by b rooke k elly M urray & e lizabeth M eigher
Christian Dior Christian Dior’s Spring-Summer 2023 Haute Couture Collection was inspired by Joséphine Baker after Maria Grazia Chiuri came across photos of her wearing Dior while performing at New York’s Carnegie Hall in 1951. Baker, an African-American singer and civil rights activist who arrived in Paris from the United States in the mid 1920s, was a glamorous icon of Jazz Age cabaret. Having acquired French citizenship, she was acclaimed by post-war Europe. As an empowered woman and a client of the house, Baker was an easy inspiration for Chiuri. For the show’s staging, Chiuri hired African-American artist Mickalene Thomas, who commissioned photos of black and mixed-race women who, like Baker, evolved into powerful figureheads by breaking racial barriers. These works revealed the deep meaning of the collection—unveiling fashion as a radical gesture of awareness. In mostly blacks and whites with some metallics, models donned suits and coats with a masculine edge, and dazzling evening wear featuring lightweight tops and dresses. Geometric patterns, fringes, silks, velvets, and delicate embroidery are signature details seen throughout the collection. Accessories, including jewelry adorned with beads and diamante and
spirit of 1920s cabaret.
Armani Privé Watery green, mauve, pale blue, and gold defined the underlying shades of Armani Privé’s Spring 2023 Couture Collection. Throughout 77 looks, the theme was harlequins. A press note on the collection linked the shades to “the rococo interiors of Venetian palazzos and the splendor of the light.” The show opened with neat little jackets with the lozenge shapes in relief, and cycled through a variety of cocktail looks hinged on shimmering black pants, knickers, or long billowing skirts. There were sequined bustiers, T-shirts, and variations on the cardigan, all bearing harlequin prints and the gentle, unfussy tailoring for which Armani is known. His collection was calculated to shimmer and twinkle against graphic outlines and blocks of black. It’s undeniably unique and quite a risk to erect an entire fashion show around one pattern—prints being so personal— but Armani wasn’t joking around with this harlequin extravaganza, splashing elongated squares on almost all of his 77 looks, some even fashioned with a Pierrot neck ruff. Given that Armani is a favorite among awards ceremonies, actors and their stylists will no doubt be clamoring to pull from Armani’s sleek harlequin parade this season. There were ensembles that vaguely read Deco Jazz-Age, while others seemed more 1980s flouncy ball gown—even punk made an appearance. It will be a testemant to the designer how many women sign on for Armani’s harlequinade come Academy Awards season.
Giambattista Valli A Giambattista Valli show is always an escape to someplace beautiful and light. Shades of happy Giambattista Valli pink abound, and we are swept up with a sense of permanent dolce vita— marked by pretty colors in billowing layers of tiered taffeta and tulle. “We’re talking about gowns for parties—for happy times,” Valli said. “I think the most important thing about haute couture is the clothes, of course, but you also bring a dream.” This past October the designer stayed at The Beverly Hills Hotel and discoved an old photo of peony pink midcentury cars parked in front of the Sunset Boulevard landmark. Around them milled handsome men in tuxedos and gorgeous women in long, flaring ballgowns, many of them pink. That’s where the sunlight-infused colors came from, he said. The options for glamorous comings and goings to fancy balls and for red carpet appearances from this collection are almost unlimited. There are stately coats and columns galore, fit to transform a young woman into a princess and to make a mature woman feel like a queen. But that’s Giambattista Valli for you: always thinking about keeping everyone happy.
The main inspiration behind Virginie Viard’s Spring-Summer 2023 Haute Couture Collection was Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s apartment at 31, rue Cambon. Chanel purchased the entire building at 31, rue Cambon back in 1918—eight years after opening her hat shop—which would eventually become the brand’s flagship boutique on the ground floor, offering clothing, accessories, and perfume by 1921. The upper level served as an atelier and show space, featuring an iconic staircase that led to her private residence. To this day, the apartment is filled with a collection of objects, sculptures, and drawings representing lions, does, stags, birds and camels. Viard appointed artist Xavier Veilhan for the set design. “For his third participation, I asked him to reinterpret the apartment’s bestiary and incorporate his own,” said Viard. “The whole embroidery universe of the collection is turned towards the animal world.” Veilhan created 11 monumental animals made of wood, cardboard, and paper that hid the models, before opening to let them escape. “I like it when the marvelous bursts forth and the course of events is interrupted,” commented Viard. Models donned the collection’s short tweed suits and coat dresses embroidered with kittens, corgis, rabbits, and swallows, does, stags, and camellias. Suits—some with double breasted jackets or tails—were paired with top hats, bow ties, white gloves, laced boots, satin capes. The dresses and jumpsuits were all crafted in silk tulle, taffeta, organza, georgette crepe, and chantilly lace. The show closed with a bride donning a wedding dress embroidered with shallows—the perfect fairytale ending. u

DECADES of Style in Palm Beach
With the influx of influencers , the well-heeled Manhattan and Brooklyn cognoscenti, and a few Brits, South Americans, and Continentals, it’s no wonder that Palm Beach would attract the most “up there” kind of retailers. So the seasonal arrival this year of the premier Los Angeles vintage fashion kingpin, Cameron Silver of the fabled Decades emporium at The Colony Hotel—the current epicenter of cool in the revitalized Florida resort town—makes perfect sense.B y R o B e R t J an J igian

Opposite page: Decades’ showroom at 8214 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, CA is full of rare vintage finds; ten chapters, each devoted to the iconic looks of a decade, comprise Decades: A Century of Fashion by Cameron Silver (inset).
Silver, with his encyclopedic knowledge of prêt-à-por·ter and haute couture, and impressive selection of creations from the past 60 years, is the go-to resource for top designers and stylists around the world. His sophisticated clients include celebrated risk takers, innovators, and trend setters—whether they be regulars on society pages, red carpets, or off the runways. That he’s also clever and maintains his enthusiasm and quite obvious passion for fashion, makes his presence appealing to the extremely discerning Palm Beach crowd.
In addition to his vintage wares, Silver is promoting the collections of several designers of clothes, accessories, and other items he believes are worth considering through his pop-up boutique on the hotel grounds. Among them are Angel Chang, Von Gern Home, Lily Eve, Galerie Reve, and Loretta Caponi—all of which have had no previous exposure in the Palm Beach market. “Cameron has
The Colony’s CEO, who has been a client of Decades for many years. “He attracts diverse and fascinating people and is a blast to have in residence at the hotel.”
“Cameron is not your typical vintage dealer,” remarks author and editor Amy Fine Collins, a longtime friend and client. “He is happy to sell others’ wares, promote other people’s projects, and participate in charitable causes. He did not invent the market for vintage fashion, but he certainly made it acceptable, desirable, and exciting to a much wider audience” Collins continues, noting Silver’s generous effort to host signings for her daughter Flora’s recently published novel, A Small Affair, in Palm Beach and other cities.“ He also has a wide streak of the curator and historian in him, which we will see unfold as he develops his own project with
the Historical Society of Palm Beach County,” Fine observes. Silver is currently working on “Endless Summer”, an exhibition scheduled to open in November at the downtown West Palm Beach institution. “The show will examine Palm Beach’s contribution to resort chic,” says Silver. “I don’t think locals realize how influential Palm Beach has been on international style and trends.
“Palm Beach was America’s first luxury resort and helped to refine the way we and the world dress on vacation,” explains Silver, who grew up in Beverly Hills—a destination often compared to Palm Beach with its palm tree-lined streets, luxury shopping, and high-end clientele. “Palm Beach has a very distinctive and joyful style that celebrates bold colors and prints.” Continues Silver, “I love it here”. ◆
