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


Fiona Krüger - Mememto mori

Fiona Krüger, a recent graduate of ECAL/University of Arts & Design Lausanne from the Master in Luxury Industry & Design, has created 'Memento mori ' for her thesis project. The timepiece reinterprets the theme of mortality in watch-manufacturing. It draws inspiration from the Mexican imagery of Dia de los Muertos and the 17th century watch of Mary Queen of Scotts with a human skull detailed with decorative gold metalwork. The skeletal form of the the faceplate is formed by layering, by which the intricate nature of a mechanical watch is reinforced. The case is fashioned from solid silver and mineral hand-cut glass and is engraved by hand as well. The dial is made from gold and rhodium-plated brass which has been laser-cut and engraved. Blued steel hands of the clock move by a ETA 2824 mechanism over the skull watch face. Momento mori is fastened to one's wrist by a blued calf leather band with a silver buckle.
