Some people have a â€œtype,â€ a predisposition towards falling in love (or at least lust) with the same kind of person over and over. In my romantic life, no one can accuse me of this, as my boyfriends have been as varied as a box of chocolates (some delicious, some as disappointing as those horrible strawberry crÃ¨mes). But when it comes to fashion, Iâ€™m guilty: weird Europeans (typically Belgians) who curate art shows and donâ€™t consider making clothes to be their lifeâ€™s work just do it for me, so it should come as no surprise that Raf Simons and I have a very intimate (albeit one-sided) relationship. The self-trained former furniture designer presented his fourth menâ€™s collection for Jil Sander recently in Milan, all grays and airiness and clean lines, and of course, itâ€™s just my type. Belgium is famous for its chocolates, and there’s nary a strawberry crÃ¨me to be found here.
