The latter with a new album, out now, and this wonderfully freaky collaboration with Mr. Hansen.
In the video, I love Beck's little tribute to the recently "deceased" fashion house Number (N)ine. Can you spot it? And, as always, I'm pretty much in love with all the frames in which Charlotte appears.
Yesterday I remained silently hoping for a miracle.
It was the 5th of November and I really wished something would change in our lives.
Nothing happened! What a shocker!!! In these days nothing ever happens.
Life may treat me well but I am the first one seeing that something needs to change.
We are ruled and led by incompetent, corrupt and mediocre people.The planet is falling apart as are our finances and economy. I see common people and the sad and weary looks on their faces, begging for a change, begging for help. Nothing happens. Nothing changes, well, not for the better, anyway.
I was hoping that someone remembered the 5th of November. That someone evoked Guy Fawkes, rightly said to be the only man to enter the British Parliament with honest intentions.
Maybe next year. Whoknows? We might wake up until then.
I’ve recently bought two pairs of suede monkstraps.
A pair of KG by Kurt Geiger Cadfael tan double monkstraps, pictured above and below.
As well as a pair of Fly London Cosh sand single buckle monks.
I had to buy them online because I just could find them anywhere and I haven’t had the opportunity of visiting London recently. But the surprise came when I received the shoes. They were both made in Portugal.
My question is: why can’t I buy these products in Portugal? Especially since Fly London is a Portuguese brand.
You would say that it’s all a marketing and branding thing. I agree, but it’s also a goddamn ridiculous thing.
How can you launch and project Portuguese fashion/design if you don’t start with your home market? Look at all the major Italian and Spanish brands. They started at home first and then proceeded to take over the fashion world.
By the way, the shoes are great. Beautiful and very confortable.
