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


Katie Eary

A My Little Pony look-alike with a huge "appendage" graced the shirts and shorts at Katie Eary's presentation. We know what effect the vernal season can have on people's libido, and the Brit designer seemed all clued in about it. "It's basically 1950s teenager", she said after the show, name-dropping Elvis Presley and his youthful innocence. "But his sexuality was so threatening to people", shecontinued, and it was this sexual undercurrent beneath the polished and wholesome surface that she was looking to explore. The color scheme was in itself seductive, with ombré effects of turquoise blending into pea green. Other times, the neon signs of the Las Vegas Strip were evoked on shirts with stark, printed detailing. Boxer shorts peeked out from underneath pants, another take on teenage clothing rebellion. Katie Eary has an upcoming lineup named Giltig with Ikea available from April 2016 and it's easy to see why her sense of humor and subversiveness could appeal as interior design. As a fashion designer, her role is not as evident. You sometimes find yourself asking if this is really a collection of prints rather than clothes. She is most successful when acting as a kind of young, East London send-up of Richard James, the Savile Row tailor with a similar genius feel for color. But this time you got the joke and then thought : nNow what ? A pony with a giant schlong is fine and dandy (or is not), but when repeated over and over, the joke gets a little old (a certain "one trick" metaphor comes to mind). The trompe l'œil chunky knit print on fine-gauge knitwear just fell a bit flat in comparison, and you ended up wanting more. Because the shirts, loose and billowing, were okay, as were the shorts, which were cut in a way that made you feel embarrassed for looking.
