Because I'm deluded
and perfectly flawed
I shall live by passion
and not by law

Change. It hits you in the face so hard sometimes, and so suddenly, you wonder how you'll ever get back on your feet. Your world turns upside down, and as much as you'd want, it never goes back to how it was. As much as it is painful, or at least uncomfortable, it's still good. There is no other way to grow. And it's okay to be scared, just don't resist it, because it'll run you over. It's going to happen, and you can't stop it, as long as you're alive, things are going to constantly change and it's inevitable. Go ahead and be scared, panic, scream, just find it in you to pull your shit together and embrace the metamorphosis. It is, anyway, what makes life so incredibly beautiful.

Anthony Vaccarello - the new YSL boy


The end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 saw a lot of shifts and turns in the fashion industry, including designers playing musical chairs! Besides the introduction of 'see now, buy now' system - which I salute, the change that intrigued me the most was naming Anthony Vaccarello the new creative director of YSL.
I don't know about you, but when I think of YSL woman, I think of a powerful woman, a seductress, clad in masculine tuxedo but feminine and sexy none the less. I think of Helmut Newton's photos, and the women he photographed, so confident in their bodies and owning their sexuality (and nudity) without exploiting it. As Tom Ford said himself: "The Saint Laurent woman is more twisted, more perverse. She is going to tie you up and slap you around before she finally lets you have sex with her. And a lot of that doesn't come so much from Yves, it comes from all those provocative Helmut Newton pictures of YSL clothes from the '70s."
