She’s had more of an impact upon fashion than most, but when it comes to curating her own wardrobe how does Carine Roitfeld do it?

While explaining to The Guardian that a person’s wardrobe should be appropriate (or as she puts it, “you must never share your wardrobe with your daughter… You have to wear something for your age or you will look really ridiculous.”), Roitfeld had this to say:

You have to look every five years at your wardrobe and say: “Is it OK to wear this with my legs? Is it OK to wear sleeveless with my arms?’ Then you have a cull. It’s not nice but you have to do it.

Roitfeld’s comment comes as a part of her promotional work for her Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent book.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
