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


Lou Dalton

There were boys in a Jermyn Street arcade window, pretending to be shop dummies for Lou Dalton. It was a fitting setting for this designer, who's reached a point of clarity where she's focused on making simple things for men, which will sell. Refreshingly direct, her look relies on undemanding iterations of things she knows dudes like her partner really hand over money for : an oversize shirt, a nice sweater, chinos, jeans, easy shorts. "I've realized design doesn't have to have everything and the kitchen sink", she exclaimed. "There are just twelve styles here, which I've developed from former seasons". What separates Lou Dalton's work from the 'basic' is her focus on fabrics -like the really lovely quilted cotton here. It's the kind of considered quality, combined with her modern sense of English identity, which has brought her fans from Japan. "So, we're going to take this on tour !" she announced. "In a climate like this, I'm so happy about that !" Sure thing.
