The world was so recent then that many things lacked names,
and in order to indicate them it was necessary to point - Marquez

Some thoughts on timelessness

Fashion is intrinsically linked to change,the excitement that new trends generate is what keeps the wheels of the industry turning - and yet ironically it is those glimpses into 'garment timelessness' that we ultimately search for and desire.I return to photographs of the sixties and seventies time and time again,i return there because I find that those two decades managed to capture the essence of why some things are timeless...
A pendant slung loosely around a tanned neck, a simple button down shirt that allows the cuffs to fold well,perfectly sized buttons and a nude girl at a well tressed table are those arrays into the classic.
