There has been a buzz surrounding time issues, meteorological time that is completed messed up, with intense nonstop showers in some places, and extreme heat in others, and even so the idea that is all happening with a frenetic pace, Pre-Fall 2016 presented almost at the same time of the Resort 2017 collections, a schedule perturbation, trips, uncertain paths, unexpected changes and a turmoil that one hit of disparate egos that are similar and assimilated without asking for permission.
Futuristic buses “swallow” the vehicles in traffic, or a supersonic train able to connect LA to San Francisco in only 30 minutes, but after all for what, in such a hurry?
Where are we going? What is our Final Destination, like that horror film of 2000, in which the boy provides a premonition that the plane which was comfortably traveling, would explode a few minutes after take off … But I don’t want to frighten you, but in some cases reality exceeds so much the fiction.
The truth is that we are so addicted to instant, to the next in the near future we can hardly taste the now fully present. We wear the latest trends emerging weekly in any fast-fashion retailer, and every trip to the store is such a superficial update to our look, when in essence we are exactly equal to the previous week, or even months ago.
So why all this hunger for new, this fibrillation for the latest, this fleeting fever…?

She has a powerful engine behind it, which manages all the clothes she wants, stylists that help to find what is the best for her, but she still manages to have an identity that is distinct from most of any pop star out there, and that’s why she’s so trendsetter and is living a powerful year, did not happen overnight, required immense work, especially from her. The green stole she wore would be an irrelevant detail if her performance wasn’t good at the Billaboard Music Awards.
But back to the question of time, we must slow down; take further the moments that life offers us without thinking too much about tomorrow. Now desperately want to know how Vêtements will do Haute Couture or how would be the KENZO collection for H&M in terms of sales, but that matter? Curiosity is inherent in every human being, but worth the wait, and then being able to separate what is truly important and what is mere superficiality.
And only time will tell what comes around … And the future is a spaceship that we try to command…
