WSJ: If fashion is a barometer of the prevailing mood, what can we expect to see for fall 2009?
Wintour: Right now, what’s going to work is something their customer doesn’t have in her closet and that has a real intrinsic sense of value. I don’t think anyone is going to want to look overly flashy, overly glitzy, too Dubai, whatever you want to call it. I just don’t think that’s the moment. But I do feel an emphasis on quality and longevity and things that really last.
