In a new interview with Derek Blasberg, Traina says: “It’s definitely flattering, but [muse] might not be the best word to describe our relationship. I feel like that inevitably, we influence each other — it could never be one way … But the fashion industry just loves that word, doesn’t it? … I don’t know. ‘Collaborator-in-life’ sounds good to me.”
