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


"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



As pure, clear, and pleasingly palate-cleansing as a glass of iced Perrier, this Lemaire collection fused sportswear and workwear into a bubbly, minimalist-casual micro-delight. Perhaps the best things in it were the shirt-jacket hybrids (shackets or jirts) double-zipped bombers you could reasonably wear tucked in or out, and in poplin as light as the breeze. But big love too to the seersucker check half-sleeve jacketed suit, the high-rise loose-leg cotton twill pants, the unwashed heavy-denim three-button blazer, and the double-zipped four-pocket jacket in pale ginger. Other standouts included olive Mao suits, sans-doublure overcoats, and the matchy-matchy print three-piece in cotton. That last look aside, Christophe Lemaire & Sarah-Linh Tran are unafraid to stick their man in top-to-toe block black, olive, or deep blue : it doesn't photograph that well, but it looks confident in its scalpel-outlined monotony. Like team Topman Design in London, the duo looked to Northern soul for their bags, high-waisted and wide. "They're a bit feminine but worn in a sporty and manly way", Christophe Lemaire said. And they were. Here they were effective, not just affectation.
