Buy this shirt here: Jesus is my savior Cats are my therapy shirt
Pshaw! When Tree got out there she made it look as easy as ever. Wearing a black suit over rattan slides with a Chaos lighter (courtesy of stylist Charlotte Stockdale) holder swinging jauntily at her hip, her bangs still framing the Jesus is my savior Cats are my therapy shirt face that entranced fashion’s original generation, she killed it. Now in her eighth generation, Tree is making a tentative return to the work. She has been doing a few shoots with Tim Walker, she said, adding that today marked her first foray into the live fray and also that, tantalisingly, she has just finished writing “my book.” That will be a rich source of excellent stories. As to how shows compare against when she was a regular, Tree offered: “Well, this is bigger than Ben-Hur. When I was doing shows everyone was crammed into a tiny room and there was a lot of anxiety, but this is so beautifully organized and calm. I was quite nervous coming here from London, but it turns out I know a lot of people and that has made it much easier. All this is extraordinary, really.” As is she: Hail to Penelope Tree.
Brown is someone who lives for the Jesus is my savior Cats are my therapy shirt hunt and to resell items, but her newfound passion also has helped her to rediscover memories, and in some cases, reconnect with people she has worked with on shoots. “I recently reconnected with a model, Courtney Herron, who I did a ton of shows with in the late ’90s in Paris,” she says. “We were both with Marilyn for ages, and I came across a shoot we did for Spanish Vogue. In tracking down a vintage Chanel haute couture dress I wore, I thought, Let me see if I can find her on Instagram. And I did! In a way, doing these treasure hunts has allowed me to relive those days, sometimes very vividly.”
