Each week, we invite a woman or man from the Linnea Lund community to discuss their relationship with clothing, their wardrobe, and how they enjoy combining and mixing our conscientious cashmere pieces. This time, the #MyLinneaLund personality of the week is Perla Servan-Schreiber, author and chef, one of the most inspiring women of the silver generation that we know.

Some people are described as "sunshine". And while the term is sometimes overused, it seems to have been coined for Perla Servan-Schreiber. A great light emanates from her, from her always pulled-back white hair, her laughing eyes betraying her zest for life, and her face never seen without a smile. And then there's all that white that has become her uniform, her identity, her way of presenting herself to the world.

The first time our paths crossed with Perla's was on a rainy Monday in December. She arrived at Place Furstemberg, surrounded by close friends to celebrate her birthday. A few days earlier, she had sent us a message saying she couldn't imagine a lovelier place than our Paris boutique to celebrate her 80th birthday with her friends. It was an honor for us who share with her the pleasures of the table, the art of hosting, a love for good things, and the joy of serving our guests. The moment was exquisite, and the desire to meet again was immediate.

That's how we were invited to her home to talk about her unconditional love for white, which she knows so well how to combine, and her appetite for life. Yes, Perla loves life, loves aging, and has made age (and not ageism) her battle cry. Thus, she celebrates the bodies of women her age and claims the freedom that aging affords when it is embraced in good health. Over the years, she has become one of the most inspiring spokespersons for this new generation dubbed the "silver" generation. This generation of men and women who age so gracefully that they don't look their age. Firstly, because they are fortunate to age in good health. Secondly, because they have chosen to stay connected to others, regardless of their age, and firmly rooted in the world they live in. This is where Perla's art of living resides: "joyfully accepting reality" rather than waging war against oneself, one's body, or one's age. And watching her cook, one of her first pleasures along with sharing her recipes and tasting them, one realizes that yes, aging is beautiful, it is an opportunity, and old age is indeed full of beautiful promises...

So, let's meet Perla, who fell for Oscar, our sleeveless cashmere top for women, in its off-white version, naturally. An essential piece from the Linnea Lund wardrobe, also stunning in midnight blue.
