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.

"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



Marjan Pejoski caught late artist Chris Burden's Metropolis II at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and while there he observed the audience examining the intricate, mechanical, miniature city.

They were also pieces of personal packaging, a point emphasized by "this way up" arrows on Marjan Pejoski's uniformly pulled-high socks. Tron-touched oversized coats -and on occasion, undersized shorts- were fashioned from transparent sheeting lined or paneled with flashes of rubberized color and monochrome. There were some sensationally sinister totalitarian sex-club visored blinkers, inverted then subverted exposed tailoring, foil power short suits, and faded anarchist newsprint-collage parkas. The closing looks of jerkins assembled from a jumble of motocross-motif panels were accessorized with parachutes whose canopies billowed against the rough steel fencing that divided the audience from the runway. The show that was as exhilaratingly sincere as the clothes in it were utterly particular. If you share the eye, it was visionary.
