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


John Elliott

You could say the emerging label John Elliott + Co, co-founded by the namesake designer and his business partner, Aaron Lavee, is really finding its feet. The duo behind the athletic-conceptual hybrid presented a limited yet impressive collection for this season, one with an unusual starting point -a marathon through Vietnam. Despite a nettlesome visa issue he'd rather not dwell on, and the occasional gust of smog, John Elliott and a member of the team ran through country and city alike, stretching from Saigon to Hanoi. Their eleven-day trek informed the ultra-lean silhouettes in nylon and mesh, among other tech and/or thermal fabrics, as well as a tone-on-tone palette of stone, charcoal, olive, and navy -not the cliché tropical colors one might expect. Models with exaggeratedly sweaty faces dashed back and forth to frenetic music John Elliott sampled from videos he took at traffic stops along the journey. In pieces that had been deliberately faded and expertly layered, they became exquisite blurs of their former selves. This was a runaway hit, to be sure.
