In the beginning there is always a need. The need is for classic style and it is key to understanding the kind of atmosphere in which we are immersing ourselves more and more. Let us be clear. This is not classic style of a nostalgic nature or an unthinking return to old traditions. Nor is it mere revival, a fleeting fashion that nullifies recent endeavors to exalt what was conceived in other eras. When we say classic, we mean an inspiration that is more subtle and perhaps more all-embracing, underpinning the need for genuine rules, lasting models and definite recognizability, which is to say those proven precepts that give a sense of security and are tools of identity. These tools are not necessarily fetched from long-ago times, found as they are in our recent history as well.
