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


Nick Graham

After traveling to Mars last season, Nick Graham brought his collection back to Earth -or more specifically, into the ocean. Using Atlantis as the theme, the designer prefaced his show with images of a pristine beach, schools of fish and other sea creatures. He said because Plato's original work on Atlantis was written in 360, he used a Donovan song of the same name from 1968 to modernize the collection. "It was based on a mix of psychedelics from the Sixties", he added, pointing to a marijuana-printed shirt shown under a bright green suit, "and colors based on corals". As a result, the tailored clothing collection was chock full of bright hues that included reds, blues, oranges, golds, pinks and a rainbow of other tropical-themed shades, many of which were accessorized with oversize seahorse lapel pins or parrots on the shoulder. The dress shirts were also colorful and wildly patterned with paisley, polka dots and wave patterns complementing some more-traditional stripes. While a few of the designer brands this season -Todd Snyder and Perry Ellis among them- showed an oversize silhouette, Nick Graham's fit remained slim. "American men are still in the slim business", he said. He also showed a few women's looks -colorful, patterned sundresses that worked well with the menswear- as well as a couple of pairs of undies. While the collection didn't break any new ground, the use of playful colors and patterns provided a welcome distraction from today's stressful climate.
