Geoffrey Beene's style is lovely to behold, and is so "me." It's full of clean lines, comfort, and it shows off a woman's body beautifully.
Mr. Beene's inspiration was said to think of some body parts as being particularly sensual:
- the nape of the neck (think geisha!)
- the upper arm meeting the soft shoulder (every woman has nice shoulders, unless you are so bone thin that your clavicles protrude to the point of scariness)
- the small of the back
- the calf
- the arch of the foot (not sure I agree here -- feet kind of weird me out. A lot.)
- the ankle
- the instep
- and the most alluring of all, the back side of the hip, near the waist.
