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



"I try to depict a man who is timeless. A modern guy you couldn't put a stamp on. That's where I want to go, actually". Ilan Chetrite's exegesis of his Sandro collection seemed incongruous, because the clothes he presented appeared rooted in several micro-epochs, all of them 20th century. Sure, those wide high-rise silk pants and tattered-hem, pin-tucked, topstitched jeans had neither break nor flare -out of time to an extent. But the high and wide collars on his suiting, the string tees, and the chisel-toe Chelsea boots were just a few ingredients in this pot-au-feu of Gallic masculinity; it was variously redolent of "Le salaire de la peur " via Fernando Rey in "The French connection" through to the henchmen in "Diva". There were fine pieces here -a strongish check DB suit, a few not-too-overstylized black leathers, a reasonable trench- and pulled apart from their confrères, many of them could work well enough in 2016. However, as a styled collection of ensembles, it felt too much like an unfocused mix-tape of anachronisms. But once again, these are only the pieces from the fashion show. Sandro has better clothes to sell in its many boutiques.
