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


au jour le jour

It's tough to conjure up the au jour le jour guy. On the one hand, he likes classic clothes and straightforward silhouettes -no progressive shapes, drapes, skirts, or flashes of skin. On the other, he will happily wear a shirt covered in cartoony hair dryers or a double-breasted tux completely adorned in pop flowers. With the Italian brand's founders, Mirko Fontana & Diego Marquez, both absent from a walk-through of their men's collection, the press release substitute suggested jet-setters who dress for Las Vegas one day and St Barts the next. By that measure, mission accomplished : you can't be a wallflower if you're wearing a citron and seafoam floral jacquard pullover. Included in the mix were some entirely versatile jackets, Western-inflected in varying degrees of denim, suede, and fringe. Khakis -shorts, trousers, a trench with mahogany piping- helped offset the Crayola hues, as did a few other polished outerwear pieces. They offered a windbreaker fronted with an iPad-sized pocket in both a basic micro plaid and the aforementioned hair dryer print, suggesting they understand the brand cannot hitch its future on goofy motifs -especially not when patched across a pair of jeans. Still, AJLJ's raison d'être remains a bit puzzling. So let's just conclude the look is eccentrically preppy -well suited for types who trade in bons mots and rarely aspire to be taken seriously.
