Apple, of course, is no stranger to the iconic fashion moment. Co-founder Steve Jobs’ black Issey Miyake turtleneck had massive influence that stretched far beyond Silicon Valley and within it, too ― most recently relevant being on Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.
But Mitchell’s look is cool as hell, and a stark shift from the jeans and T-shirts we’re used to seeing on the Apple stage.The only thing that could upstage something like this would have if Oprah had shown up.
We haven’t been able to track down the exact item, but here’s something similar if you’re feeling inspired.
