The Tastemaker’s Evening Look
“Women in other cities will always go for the flash appeal of an established fur like mink or sable, but this rabbit jacket is a humble fur, and only a chic New York woman would be brave enough to wear it. Worn over this dress, it’s a new kind of sophistication. This outfit could be worn to any event in Manhattan after 6 P.M., but it would be too fancy to wear in another city.”
—Kal Ruttenstein, senior vice-president of fashion direction, Bloomingdale’s
