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.
Happiness is just a hairflip away.
"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".
LA-based rock band 30 Seconds to Mars, led by Jared Leto, will release its third album, "This is war" on December 8. The first single, "Kings and queens" is already doing quite well in its genre, peaking to #3 on the Billboard Alternative Songs. As for the album, Leto and the kewl dudes head back to the style that fans loved during their first effort. It's alternative rock with experimentations of many sounds and it all becomes quite powerful and emotional. There's a lot going on in this effort but it all comes together nicely and I'm sure fans will not be disappointed.
Kris van Assche pared down the list of signatures he has applied to the Dior man, making for a concise, shorter show (which was fortunate since the producers decided to broil the audience with radiant heaters overhead -watch the video in the second part). Taking “angles” as his theme, KvA worked asymmetrical closures and geometric cutting into his entirely black and white collection, injecting mild references to punk (zippers, bindings and earrings) and Eighties new wave. He maintained the stretch pants and the pleated parachute pants, and the latter shape acquired an off-centered, fold-over waistband. Trousers ended in black ankle boots with distinctive white piping. Other new statements included neck treatments such as tall, crumpled cowls, and striking shirts with contrast tabs crossing the throat. Boxy jackets topped tunics. In three seasons, Kris van Assche has had no trouble distinguishing himself from his predecessor. He now should concentrate on the clarity of the luxury proposition that the Dior name demands, and elevate the clothes from club wear. The techno music and the fog machines aren’t helping.
