Dark Puss would have very much liked to go to this exhibition. Although his recent interests have been for less demure clothing (but still sexy and elegant) he remains a fan. I like very much the B+W portrait you show on your posting too, who is the photographer?

Karen/NYC

I WANT that black & red jersey dress!!

Harriet

I once had a Jean Muir dress. It was wonderful. Absolutely simple but so beautifully cut. I suppose it got chucked out in a purge many years ago. Why oh why didn't I keep it?

Rebecca

Jean Muir's style was so understated and beautiful, I used to go and gaze at her clothes when I lived in London.

Cornflower

To answer Peter's question, the photographer is Gemma Levine.

Claire

I have a black Jean Muir skirt which comes out winter after winter. It still looks and feels as good as when I bought it years and years ago (in, the sadly now gone, Jenners Designer Room!!). I will try and get to the exhibition.

Now that would be something to see...

I went to the Armani exhibition in London some years back, and was so disappointed: it looked more like a charity shop.

His clothes are ultra wearable, but look rather worn, whereas demure Jean Muir's are terrific even on a hanger.

My one and only is only on a hanger as I've grown out of it sadly.
