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



London-based Austrian designer Raimund Berthold's label is characterized by a utilitarian sense of color and silhouettes free from defined shapes; nylon, neoprene and synthetic fabrics cut against natural wool and cotton. Bold clothes for men led by inventive design and fit -not by fashion per se. For this season's offering, research focused on the sculptural quality of religious habits and, as always, the life-jackets and uniforms worn by the British army during World War II. The performative sculptures by influential German artist Franz Erhard Walther (now 77) were also a key reference. Since the early Sixties, he has posed fundamental questions about the conventional idea of the artwork as a fixed pedestal -or wall- bound 'thing'. From 1978 up to 1986 he conceived a unique series of installations that he named 'wallformations', made using sheets of canvas and basic clothing patterns. The largest piece from the series entitled Wallform Gelbmodellierung (1980/81) was shown at Art Basel Unlimited last year. Encouraged by its dramatic scale, economic use of color (a luminous yellow) and minimalist rigour, Raimund Berhold has showed how clothing can encase the body in an uncomplicated free way.
