le Perfecto en daim, biker jacket, Elle and Gilles Bensimon

ELLE is one of the first magazine I started to collect images from. Not only was I reading during my yearly vacations in Italy, but I was also collecting photos from fashion and art mag. When I became a designer, in the early 80', Elle would be the very first mag to shoot my clothes. Here the famous "Perfecto", but made of the luscious and finest suede from Millau, the leather country in France where kings would ordered their gloves to be made. Catherine Rousso,now a Fashion Head editor at ELLE was the journalist.
