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


Margaret Howell

Margaret Howell chose two renditions of the song "Hotel California" for the soundtrack of her show -first, performed as a cover, and at the finale, the original track sung by the Eagles. With the collection's easygoing, folksy and somehow coastal vibes -see knitted boxer shorts, a wide-stripe boat-neck tee, and linen day scarves- one might've assumed the designer was on a go-west, possibly retro Golden State kick. But in her typically mum fashion, she denied it : "we just chose music that we like", she said, seeming amused that someone would ask such a question. Even so, this was a particularly relaxed Margaret Howell. "What's a little step forward here is the use of lighter fabrics", she said, such as linen-cotton in tank tops, paper-thin Gore-Tex in trenches (these were great), and even slouchy yarn in fisherman's knitwear, which arrived with squared necklines and mustard or navy palette. Despite using relatively thick strands, the jumpers looked effortless and beachy. Boot-cut trousers, with the cuffs turned up, furthered the seaside associations -one could almost see them being worn, standing at the shore-break, on a foggy Big Sur morning. Best in show ? A linen button-down, clay in color, with windowpane checks. Throw it on and check into the Hotel California.
