e.e. cummings is one of my favorite poets. As for the other statement, "lack of passion is fatal,"--it's true. When I came across it, I paused & thought to myself: passion is a drive, & a motivational force; it's pretty much an individual's replacement of anomie, a feeling of aimlessnes and lack of purpose. To further reflect on that, passion can be manifested in different forms. But then I remembered Aristotle's quote--thanks to my countless viewings of Legally Blonde-- "The law is free from passion". Was he implying that when it comes to universal applications of law & reason, one should obtain from emotion and remain rational? (By this I'm not referring to lawyers who use concrete facts and evidence for a case). Each person has a case of their own, including the principles they follow. So is it just me, or is this quote a little contradicting?
I love how last season, Anna Dello Russo was always wearing eye-catching, dressy outfits, & now she's mixing things up by wearing suits, & topping it off with a bow tie. She looks uber professional & powerful.
How does Karl Lagerfeld out-do himself, season after season? I think this is the first time I have ever been so stunned from a collection --let alone his-- that I can call it my all time favorite. It's so timeless, yet adorned with a modern touch, introducing the concept of wearing "a tunic shape over a skinny pant, paired with flats," for instance (Vogue). There is so much I can go on about, but in all honesty, I would sound reptitive & dull compared to Vogue's flawless coverage of the show, here. Enjoy xo
