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


Pal Zileri

The color palette and post-Mondrian gridded patterns of Fascist-era Italian painter Manlio Rho were the catalysts for creative director Mauro Ravizza Krieger's this-season expansion of the Pal Zileri horizon. Like others in Milan, Pal Zileri is a house rooted in tailoring -but it is looking to shake off any intimation of anachronistic formality for something more future-facing to ensure its 500-plus-employee manufacturing facility stays busy. Here, MRK played with faded purples and greens, plus a punchy ochre and some dense berry, in printed silk shirts, loose pants, and jackets that were a very attractively soft alternative to traditional eveningwear. There was more silk -plenty more- in parkas of black and green shantung and camp-collar boxy-cut short-sleeved shirts plus shorts. The designer's search for quirk sometimes didn't work; jeans with 3-inch black leather turn-ups serve no one. However, his edge-cut leather outerwear and perforated suede polos and Bermuda shorts (particularly the Bermudas) had a fine look and feel. In a nutshell, it lacked homogeneity.
