It is impossible to be disappeared in this way as a being. A beautiful but somehow shadowy woman.
She just vanished in a split-second. I’ve been following, sneakingly peeping on her for the last couple of days with this dismal weather – it seemed to be perfectly in synch with her heroin-chic aesthetic.
At a first glance, I thought she was waiting for something or someone, though without any hope. She was leaning on the window looking outside with a despair, as if she could detect some tracks of other beings that she had been desperately longing for. Or, it is also possible that she had been chased by someone because there were some moments that she was extremely trembling with fear and horror. Yes, her flamboyant crimson outfit did not bode well for her future – it already made her looking like a victim of a crime scene.
After the long-haul of my observation, the bizarre moment came in a flash. It was the moment that she arrived this dark hallway, when her lashes started to quiver in a dim light. With the blank eyes she was gazing into something, which I assumed that she had been waiting for or chased by, yet, I couldn’t sense anyone else but her. Driven by some mysterious spirit, she was taking the hesitating steps forward. She jumped into the eternal staircase, landed on the cold floor, and her cheek slowly flushed crimson.

PITTI FRAGRANZE the best display of international artistic perfumery brands, that takes places in Florence, focused this time on sustainability, a hot topic that is abused and more often used for marketing leverage rather than for executing real changes. In perfumery, sustainability is still a very “fresh” topic and for this reason Pitti Fragranze no.15 dedicated some attention to it through a series of talks stepping on the the frontiers of sustainability and exotic spices.

Playground is an all-knitwear collection that conveys playfulness and lightness while the garments are underpinned by highly intricate and sophisticated fabric structures. The elaborate patterns, rich colours and distinct textures are all knitted into integral pieces of seamless fabric and remind us on works of Alexander Calder who has influenced the bright colors and blocky shapes used by the designer in this collection. Playground offers a new knitwear that renders smooth surface that bears intricacy within a harmonious whole, as if the fabrics are born this way, natural and pristine. This revolutionary collection redefines knitwear.
During our journey to Burma we had taken the GoPro camera with us and installed it with the pro waver from Walimex that made possible to have not another shaky GoPro video but incredibly smooth recorded moments.
