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


Les Hommes

Designers Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch were thinking about the moment when today meets tradition. So far, so good. This season's collection repatriated the tuxedo to the closets of the young and fabulous -with, naturally, a twist, which is where things took a turn. Their efforts to age down a staple gave the lot a camp factor that didn't telegraph elegance, their stated theme. Cases for the cummerbund included pairing one with a tank top or shorts. Overruled. Shorts and trousers were layered on top of one another and jumpers styled over shirts and ties. As they coasted away from the formal, their collection picked up steam. There were good specimens among the shirting and the sporty suiting, but a clearer edit would've brought them more to light. Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosc explored the world of colors : khaki, yellow, sienna, green, dove, blue, beige.... If in previous collections, they seemed to have grown close to darker atmospheres, this time they chose the shininess of warm colors, keeping a certain minimalism in the lines. With some references to more formal looks –these cummerbunds used as normal belts– the Dutch label kept a relaxed and comfortable fit, deeming nonchalant modernity their priority. Which was not so bad at all.
