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


Devon Halfnight LeFlufy

No offence to Devon Halfnight LeFlufy's collection, but his presentation kind of stole the show. You wouldn't have thought so at first, walking into Skylight Clarkson Square's standard-issue, white-walled space, but once you strapped on a pair of virtual reality goggles, you got the real -actually virtual- spectacle. Working in collaboration with digital artists Tom Galle, Bert Vermeire, Moises Sanbria and Alyssa Davis, Devon Halfnight LeFlufy had staged models dressed in his current looks within three different head-trippy virtual spaces. One, for instance, featured an endless night sky raining giant pills. Because LeFlufy is a designer with a deep interest in both technology and trippiness, the VR add-on felt like an appropriate brand extension as opposed to a seasonal gag. But stay tuned for other designers to follow in his footsteps. Anyway, the clothes. What seemed, at first glance, like a bit of a hodgepodge was actually, on further inspection, an exercise in self-discipline. As the Canadian designer explained, he had restricted himself to a bare minimum of references -dragon and tribal motifs, a graphic floral print, a digital image of a woman on a TV screen, and a tweet- and then recollaged them in various ways. The semi-sheer pieces for men and women printed with surreal combinations of all these references were distinctive, if not to everyone's taste; meanwhile, the items that complemented these looks, like the sequined boot-cut pants or lightweight wool coat with a kind of disintegrating shoulder, ought to have more popular appeal. Devon Halfnight LeFlufy is an adventurous designer, but not an alienating one. His Antwerp-based brand is its own kind of virtual reality, an invitation into his screwball world.
