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


Maison Margiela

The bench of British editors seated across the soaringly beautiful marble runway at Maison Margiela were already a picture of post-Brexit misery. Yet as the first chords of Leonard Cohen's 1971 hit "Last year's man" were strummed over the PA, their faces fell further. This pretty quintessential Margiela menswear collection nicely fitted the mood of a day in which what was last night unthinkable was this morning horribly real. The clothes were the product of the exquisite agony of disruption : guts-on-the outside suiting, quartered Chelsea boots, shirts half-tacked irregularly together by hook and eye, pants turned up as an afterthought. Oversize MA1s worn over knits pulled down over short shorts that gave the impression of mini skorts and some rib-knit shorts attached at the front by popper to a racer-back crop-back tank top were considerably subversive. Hokey hunting illustrations -hounds pursuing mallards- graced fluid silk shirts worn over paper bag–cinched olive pants. These images returned on pants worn below an off-lime textured blazer with four patch pockets at each hip. What was once together was untogether. On Maison Margiela's runway it looked convincing, alluring, interesting. That didn't cheer the Brits up, of course. Certainly not this one.
