On Timelessness: Notable Dallasites Share What the Word Means to Them

We polled influential locals and contributors to this issue on what thoughts the word conjurs up for them.

Dolly Parton. She’s forever young in her spirit and personality, and her music crosses generations and genres as new renditions of her songs continue to be sung and celebrated. Gregg Asher, hair stylist, the salon at Neiman Marcus


Well-made bags and shoes—pieces I can pass on to my daughters. A beautifully made handbag never goes out of style. (The less logos, the better.) —Ryan Conner, writer


I have a particular Hermès scarf that is timeless and probably one of my favorite possessions. I am certain it will look just as good to me in my golden years as it did the first year I owned it! —Cameron Drinkwater, owner, Cameron Drinkwater Interiors

Brides de Gala Finesse Scarf; $415/Hermès

A topped-off glass of wine. Timely and timeless. —JB Jones, co-founder, JonesBaker


Serving my nicest wine glasses on a daily basis, even if it’s just to drink water. That sense of everyday elegance is timeless. —Rudolf Valentino, showroom manager, Jean de Merry


Greer Garson is not only one of the most timeless, but also one of the most underrated, actresses of the golden age of Hollywood. The fact that she married local oil tycoon Buddy Fogelson and maintained a part-time residence in the penthouse of one of the most timeless Dallas buildings—Howard Meyer–designed 3525 Turtle Creek—makes her even more a favorite. —Mark Doty, chief planner of historical preservation, City of Dallas


There is nothing quite as lovely or timeless as a velvet bow in the hair, gracefully tied around the neck, cinching the waist, or tied at the wrists. —Britni Wood, co-owner, The Loveliest

Bow scrunchie; $6/Free People

Valley House Sculpture Center and Gardens. I never tire of walking around this hidden jewel to be inspired. —Patrick L. Boyd, senior design associate, David Rolston Landscape Architects


Timeless is not bound by trends and decades. Timeless is getting it right the first time. —Stephanie Greenwell, vice president, Greenwell Homes


Timeless has as much to do with craftsmanship as it has to do with design. Timeless suspends between the tension of trendy and fundamental. A white house will always be timeless. —Peter Scott, principal, Jim Scott & Sons Builders
