Autumn. Art of Solitude.
A cloudy day and the downtown core of the city is strangely slow-moving. There is a chill in the air and I am layered in my newest pieces. Thank you, Gucci for bringing back the Varsity look. Picked up this Schott NYC Varsity jacket because of the interesting leather pockets. I won’t use them, of course, because have my red Celine for all the things I cannot leave the house without.
The Couture Beyond: Guo Pei exhibition is at the VAG. I am early and the doors are not open yet. I want to spend the whole day investigating the intricacies of each piece. Every layer, every stitch, every gold thread. Once Rihanna wore the Yellow Imperial Cape to the Chinese-themed Met Gala, I was mesmerized.
As I wait, I imagine a ride through a field in the countryside of France. My soft Burberry scarf blowing in the autumn breeze.
Je rêve de la vie à la campagne.
There is a Turkish proverb that says ‘A lion sleeps in the heart of every brave man.’ This concrete lion sleeps on this ledge. I breathe in his power. Breathe out. Repeat. The air smells like autumn.
