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


3.1 Phillip Lim

Two lines of enormous white flags lined the runway. Surrender ? That's not how it looked from this bench. Phillip Lim's project this season seemed to be to take garments whose history was wrapped up in the partisanship of masculine tribes, soften their edges until that original affiliation seemed meaningless, and leave us with a blanker canvas charged with potential. So, the Wall Streeter's suit jacket was rendered in archly cut cotton and paired with Bermudas, or as a silkily linen mix in a jumpsuit. Military uniform was shorn of its stripes and its breast pocket -although a stitched memory remained- and re-rendered. In white, these looks semaphored "An officer and a gentleman" : stereotypes are not easily shaken off. Sometimes it was impossible to detect any agenda behind the looks apart from a desire for looseness and room to flex, as per a roomy yellow knit tee above obi-belted white pants in crushed linen, or a quilted opaque parka worn with a Bengal-striped granddad shirt and quilted, raw-hemmed shorts. The ornately paned, hand-sketched botanical print that flourished near the close was pleasing. In fact, this was all quite pleasing -if sometimes just a little anodyne in its softness and studied erosion.
