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


Perry Ellis

Perry Ellis creative director Michael Maccari landed on a solid, steady line of thought for this collection : "acceptable" uniforms. Or, more specifically, how the codes that have long dictated men's dressing are changing and forever becoming increasingly casual, thereby rendering a new dimension of acceptability. What came of that was a more street-salient result than in recent seasons, with a retro sportif fix, to boot (see an intarsia knit sweater emblazoned with the number 80 -1980 was the year Perry Ellis began designing menswear). Mr Maccari suggested underscoring blazers with crinkly button-downs and tees, or sporting flat-brims embroidered with the letters PE (physical education, interchangeable with Perry Ellis).This collection wasn't streetwear in the sense that we've come to know the category -it had more formality about it- but it was a measured and metered step into a relaxed zone, which was nice to see. Other parts to call out : a printed neoprene sweater, which was strong, and a handful of quarter-zips. Michael Maccari, jokingly though accurately, said, "Quarter-zips are feeling cool again, right ?" Agreed. Also : he launched shoes, most of which were hybridized versions of sneaker-loafers. One even had a removable tassel.
