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


Haider Ackermann

Haider Ackermann was up to his old tricks. The cheeky devil held a fashion show mostly in the dark. You could see the loose tartan jackets flowing over the tight leather pants, the floaty checked jackets (on women) over second-skin leggings, and the deep-V velveteen brocade dresses over nothing but a serious attitude. You had to stare to see these clothes, and when you stared what you got was the contours of some harlequin leggings bulging forth, or a suit, or a mixed-material jacket dissected by a strafing of white thread and yarn. Slightly shockingly, Haider Ackermann also did two read-it-and-weep perfect double-breasted banker suits. Usher was there and we were, too, and it was a beautiful show -despite being held in the dark. The designer's Berluti gig kicked off two days later, which lent this an air of a retrospective. But everyone in the audience who howled for Haider from day one howled again here, in delight that he has found a place for himself near the peak of the LVMH escarpment. Well done !
