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


Juun J

Just before the show, Korean designer Juun J said this collection had sprung from his Google-driven discovery of the G suit. The Forties invention is a jumpsuit that mitigated the effects of gravity on fighter pilots when they banked or accelerated sharply at jet speed by auto-inflating air bags around the wearer's body. These encouraged blood to stay pumping and thus minimized the chance of blackouts caused by blood rushing down from the brain into the body. The collection was called Covered, and began with an extended exploration of the G suit's webbing and ripcord strapping transferred to the arms of oversize heavy cotton sweats and down the legs of contrastingly skinny olive cargo pants. Emblazoned on the front of of the pieces were the words "COVERED" or "UNCOVERED" in block capitals, sometimes reflectively flipped. "Never get covered by another darkness; illuminate your own light". Under the neckline of a black viscose top in faux-stencil was writing : "Nothing stays uncovered". So true. Something unplanned was very nearly illuminated when one model's super-oversize cargo pants lost the battle with gravity and started to slip from his hips in the middle of the runway. He initiated an emergency procedure, and quickly pulled them up again. Juun J's padlock and chain bracelets (which are sold with the key included, he said) gleamed attractively at the wrist. A second section stepped away from the G suit by layering leather, denim, and olive drill in various permutations of oversized/undersized. When he introduced suiting as big as Balenciaga's and then shrunk the jackets down to be worn over more double-layered denim/leather/cotton pant combos, the effect was very striking. The show closed with every model whooshing up and down the runway in super voluminous black, white, and olive ultra-light outerwear that caught the breeze like sails and billowed behind them as they walked. It was hard to feel down after this entertaining exploration of antigravity inspired masculine armor.
