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


Bobby Abley

Dipsy, the Teletubby, in all his lime green plush glory, complete with twitching nose and kawai blinking eyes was the star attraction that closed Bobby Abley's show, skipping and prancing adorably around the catwalk. Last season it was the Power Rangers, this season Teletubbies. A non-sequitur, sure, and some cynics might raise an eyebrow at the principles behind the pairing and wonder if Mr Abley is treading a line perilously close to selling out, but it was fun and looked good, so who cares ? A guy's gotta eat, and there was plenty to like in this treatment of the children's characters. The Teletubbies appeared in backpacks and printed on tees with long streams spouting from their bellies, while Bobby Abley's signature bear logo was worn on belts, transformed into 3D and wearing mini bondage harnesses. Christina Aguilera, the designer's other enduring obsession, was printed in black'n'white onto black tee-shirts. Bobby Abley's signature use of sporting codes was nicely put to use in a pair of blue silk boxing shorts, trimmed with baby pink and patterned with blotchy white stars that came with a matching shirt, and in the cropped oxblood hoodie emblazoned with a golden e-passport logo -a nifty little comment on the current political climate here. Womenswear was also in the mix, brought nicely along from the his-for-her looks of previous seasons in a brick red knit dress with cheeky bosom and crotch markings and playful pink frills down the sides and over the shoulders. There was also a maxidress done out entirely in frills that looked like a giant pink mille-feuille. Sounds wrong, looked right.
