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

A NEW CLIP EVERY WEEK HERE

"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".

Devon Halfnight LeFlufy

According to Jacques Derrida, "justice is deconstruction". Perhaps you are a sucker for critical theory, but it wasn't this quote in the press notes that struck home at this Devon Halfnight LeFlufy presentation. Plumbing the late French philosopher's aphorism had its place and it was a good idea, but it was the accessory made from phone chargers and the circuit board-inspired viscose jacquard and the net material crocheted from stuff that looked like iWhatever cords that contributed to this collection feeling necessary and timely. Technology is ubiquitous; why aren’t more designers engaging the topic via fashion ? Moreover, LeFlufy’s take on tech wasn’t superficial. There was a mishmash quality to his collection that reflected the kaleidoscopic effect of a social media feed. On Instagram, you can see dozens of references, from all cultures and all eras, in a matter of seconds. The designer interpolated the collage effect, jamming elements of Seventies, Nineties, and present-day aesthetics into his clothes for men and women. A Seventies-esque patchwork coat, made from recycled leather and splashed with some ur-Nineties logomania graphics at the collar, exemplified LeFlufy’s strategy. The results could have been chaotic, repeated over numerous looks, but he kept things sensible by working with a constricted palette of neutrals, with yellow as an acidic highlight, and emphasizing a few key silhouettes. For men, there were wide-leg trousers and shirts and coats with attenuated sleeves; the womenswear was more varied but stuck to a long, lean, Nineties-vibe proportion. Larger collections for both genders would have given LeFlufy the opportunity to expand further on his clever theme, but he managed to get his point across clearly, even with a very tight edit. Which is more, frankly, than Monsieur Derrida could've said.
