“Chic is, first, when you don’t have to prove you have money, either because you have a lot and it doesn’t matter or you don’t have any and it doesn’t matter. Chic is not aspirational. Chic is the most impossible thing to define. Luxury is a humourless thing, largely, and when humour happens in luxury, it happens involuntarily. Chic is all about humour. Which means chic is about intelligence. And there has to be oddness – most luxury is conformist, and chic cannot be. Chic must be polite and not incommode others, but within that, it can be as weird as it wants.”
