Thought for the day




The pedant who considers fashion idiotic on account of its transitoriness commits a sin against life. Fashion is in fact a symbol of life itself, which showers its gifts fickly, wastefully, without calculating timidly whether the effort stands in a sensible relationship to that which is achieved. Nature strews thousands of seeds everywhere. Perhaps one will sprout. It is precisely this extravagance of thought, this eternal beginning, this colourful richness that makes fashion so pleasurable.
August Endell
