Fresh, young, beautiful, I bumped into this woman walking her dog. What a fantastic suit. Conservative? Hardly – check out that frazzled hemline and the zippers on the pockets. This woman’s mother gave her this suit as a gift. Good choice, Mum – but then this woman would probably look good in most anything.
Maybe it’s the weather that’s making me so nostalgic today, but when I saw this woman I thought of dance. And yes, it turns out she was just coming out of a dance session. What kind, I asked. She said, freeform dance. What else? I can picture this woman dancing like the free-spirited Isadora Duncan at her studio along the Seine. A blast of spirit and colour on a rainy, grey morning.
