Quote of the week: Terry Jones
Isn't this photo of Terry and Tricia Jones fantastic? Just lovely. There's an interview with the couple in the latest issue of Cos magazine. Not only has the Scandinavian retailer got understated chic down to a sheer cotton T, it has a smart magazine too. That's my idea of grown-up style. Anyhow. In 1980 Terry Jones founded i-D magazine and a couple of years later, Tricia (who'd been teaching up until that point) joined the business. They've been married for 44 years, so unsurprisingly, this is a joint effort but as Tricia has had a That's Not My Age quote of the week already, this one goes to Terry.
Terry: 'People in fashion try to hold onto a vision of youth, whereas I love the rose as a bud and I love it as it's falling off the bush, so I love the natural order of things.'
Tricia: ' I think the other thing to say is that we can't possibly see ourselves as a youth magazine - I mean look at the age of us. We're grandparents.'
Who knew such arbiters of style and diversity were nature lovers too? You can read the full interview online here.
