So it's once more into the dim and dusty recesses of my noodle. This week's scatter has arrived for your delectation. Onward!
taking up space. Lastly, this is from a Spring and Summer collection. For Antarctica? I'm so confused.
As a final installment today this image which I found just this week. This speaks of so many things to me. First, in looking at that amazing quilted coat, I get references to gentleman's banyans of the 1700s and 1800s. There is a profound elegance to it, both from its colors and textures. Then there is the model with his masses of ink and full beard, giving us the hipster thing. But even more than that this feels to me like an expression of how deeply and profoundly our world culture is changing. Where in bygone days such a juxtaposition would have been thought at very least odd, now we can see the sophistication that underlies it, because of our greater access to the world both through travel and through all the various media we indulge in, including blogs like this one. And of course I will admit that he is ravishingly handsome, which sure doesn't hurt.
I hope you've enjoyed this weeks grouping. Now go have some fun!
