Anna Dello Russo on Vintage Clothing

Anna Dello Russo on Vintage Clothing and Practical Handbags

As large and well documented as her fashion collection is, Anna Dello Russo</strong> says she's "not a fan" of vintage clothing. The Vogue Japan editor talked about this distaste in a recent Financial Times Q&A with Emilio Pucci's Peter Dundas.

"I like to consider myself the guardian of fashion. When I moved house 10 years ago, I had 4,000 pairs of shoes. I had to buy a bigger home to store all the clothes because I need closets, not kitchens, and many are now in my house in Bari [in the southern Puglia region]. I'm super tidy so every item is catalogued, stored in garment bags with tissue paper, perfumed, and on hangers that are all the same. But I'm not a vintage fan — I don't like the smell of old clothes."

Dello Russo applies similar standards when it comes to accessories and loungewear. "I'm also not a fan of bags, because anything that is practical isn't handsome; if anything I like clutches. Pajamas and tracksuits are sloppy so I only wear Abercrombie & Fitch tracksuits to go to my yoga class. If you dress comfortably, you don't get the look," she says.
