Inspired By: Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele

During our last “Best of the Best” sale at our Victory store in Van Nuys I was reminded of the maximalism of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. The woman responsible for popularizing the flashy, layered, look of the time is (former) Vogue super stylist Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele. She came up with the term “salade” to describe her particular mix of high and low fashion. Her (now) iconic shoots usually featured models with watches and bracelets stacked up their arms, a look that I have noticed is creeping back into fashion.

Even though I am a minimalist at heart, the other week I found myself trying on several pieces at a time. I could not help but attempt a Carlyne style accessories pile.
