Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli



Happiness is just a hairflip away.
Chris Crocker

A NEW CLIP EVERY WEEK HERE

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".
Tom Ford

Miu Miu

There's usually at least a nodding acquaintance between Miu Miu and the main Prada line, but this season the two collections couldn't have been more different. That is Miuccia Prada's way of addressing the dueling directions in which she sees civilization going. If the Prada collection reflects a techno-dominated cybersociety, she imagined Miu Miu at the forefront of a back-to-nature survivalist ethos.The designer, who wore a sunshine-yellow dress for her final bow, claimed she wanted to convey the notion of people making do with what our society might leave behind, which accounted for the patchwork shirts, the raggedy-hemmed tops, and the headgear, a cap and do-rag combo.
Still, this label of survivalism ain't all about roughing it. High-buttoning jackets and paperbag-waisted pants suggest desert island disco (or at least one of those New Wave fashion moments that Miu Miu -both the woman and the brand- delights in). And a linen shorts suit would definitely make any nature boy look chic !

Visvim

“Within a sound body should exist a sound spirit” is an old Japanese adage. Creative director for the Tokyo-based label Visvim he founded some years ago, Hiroki Nakamura (formerly at Burton Snowboards) wondered if there also should exist a sound spirit within a sound product. The answer is no. It is only a product. So although there is no spirit, the product can reflect spirit. And culture as well. In a way, it behaves like a mirror. He held this philosophy for shoes, as shoes happen to be daily tools : “Since most of us are no longer walking on soft grass, moss, or other natural grounds, footwear is probably the most important piece of equipment that we make use of in our life. So they have to perform comfortably, be made of the nicest and high-tech materials available nowadays and still look great.”

Snapper : Zedneram

Aquascutum (part 2)

Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler, now on their fourth season of revamping the 155-year-old Aquascutum label, bring in the crowds every time with their dramatic ideas that transform into subtle, unique details on traditional shapes. "We wanted to create a silhouette that was neither voluminous nor fitted, but much straighter," said Herz. They did just that – and then made it interesting by playing with textures, unexpected pleating and Swarovski crystals. From easy chic separates like crease-front tailored trousers and linen vests, things got more exciting with triple pleat-fronted pants or subtly glittering lamé white trouser suits. Aquascutum's first collaboration with Manolo Blahnik, meant their accessories are going to be as desired next season as the clothes have been since Fidler and Herz came on board.
