What Was Elizabeth Holmes Trying To Prove With Those Black Turtlenecks?
It seemed that Holmes was drawn to Apple founder Jobs’ commitment to perfectionism, and the legacy of his company’s world-defining tech aesthetic. She even hung a framed screenshot of his
Apple Internet bio, “printed out on Aug. 24, 2011, the day he stepped down as CEO because of pancreatic cancer,” the one-time coworker told
Fortune. Reportedly, Holmes was so obsessed with owning the exact Issey Miyake black turtleneck Jobs wore in his iconic key note presentations (and every other day of his working life) that she reportedly tracked down and stocked up on the pieces, which were
reissued in 2017 for $270.
