Sguardi dal mondo. An Accidental Pratese

(by Patricia Kinsella)


1985 January


Walking up Broadway towards Times Square, I stare up into the swirling snowflakes thinking of Spring/Summer. Diana has kicked me out of the design studio, “Go get inspired”. I spent the sweltering summer immersed in the Winter collection, and now as the icy slush soaks my boots, I try to conjure light, airy textures, cool pastels and open weaves. My second Winter in Manhattan, I can’t imagine living anywhere else, I love the frenetic pace of the city.
