If the eyes are the window to the soul, the desk, you could say, is the pathway into the mind of the creative. Being the nosy bunch we are, we asked a group of our favourite designers, PRs and friends in fashion to let us inside their offices to see how they work. Expect pristine desks from the finest vintage dealers, the best stationary about, and of course, the occasional bit of clutter. Fashion folk are only human, after all… Today we step inside the home of Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior men’s and Fendi womenswear and couture.
Where did you buy your desk?
“I got it from a friend. It’s a beautiful Pierre Chareau desk and is an object of beauty.”
Do you like a tidy desk or a messy one?
“Always tidy, everything has to be tidy.”
What’s the most sentimental thing you have on it?
“It’s just got a lamp and a small turquoise hippo on it, so I guess the hippo.”
What’s the proudest thing you’ve created while sitting at your desk?
“I don’t really think like that. I just get on with it and onto the next.”
