The latest issue of Industrie magazine has a lovely interview with American Vogue's fashion director Tonne Goodman. I've long been a fan of of her simple, elegant style; a reliable uniform of white jeans or pants, a roll neck sweater or a simple mannish shirt. Anna Sui is doing the interviewing and the pair discuss Goodman's career and the early days when she was Diana Vreeland's right-hand woman at the Met Museum, Sui asks what she wore back then:
'I was dressing like I dress now. I was dressing in pants and a shirt.'
And goes on to ask the 62-year-old if she's ever tempted to go for a more attention-grabbing, Anna Dello Russo-style outfit, at the shows:
'To be honest, any time I travel, my outft doesn't change; it's always a few pairs of white jeans and black turtlenecks. That's about it. It's always been the same. I've always packed a carry-on case. If you have a uniform, it's very easy and you don't have to think about it.'

Shame the photos by Inez & Vinoodh are so airbrushed...
What's your uniform?
