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


Alexander Wang

The kids are all right -particularly by Alexander Wang, who for his guys' offering tapped into the same stripe of youth culture that inspired his womenswear. Here he once more spoke the gospel of a street- and skate-spiked mix that so suited his muses like Katie Moore, and to compelling result. The womenswear's graphic runway motifs (Girls and Strict, to name a couple) reemerged here on hoodies and twill pants, alongside semi-illicit lines like 'Best high you can buy ' and 'Not for drugs ' across a breast pocket. Add to that a goodly dose of more classic Americana -buffalo checks and brushed wool, handled à la Wang, naturally- and you had a lineup that struck a nice balance between the novel and the more timeless (the styling also incorporated the diffusion range T by Alexander Wang), the tension of hard and soft, of grunge and polish. To wit : a classic, oversize camo topper with lining in a candy pink curly lamb, or a coach's jacket in swiss-dotted, glossy pony hair. Sure, a wide-wale corduroy shirt embroidered with tiny, writhing pole dancers might not withstand a Kondo-esque wardrobe purge a couple of years down the line, once its newness has worn off, but a buttery leather parka is one to be broken in, sure to stand the test of time. Bottom line : you can find the same clothes at any H&M store with a different price tag.
