Alexander McQueen, SS15, Paris.
For the Spring-Summer 2015 collection at Alexander McQueen, creative director Sarah Burton drew inspiration from a personal collection of kimonos collected from Japan. This resulted in garments that combined organic motifs with geometric silhouettes using exquisite construction and fabric details.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

“One new paper, published yesterday in the journal Trends in Biotechnology, aimed to find out. It outlined a new method for growing ground beef in a lab, different from both the technique used in last year’s burger and the 3-D printing that other researchers have proposed. It also crunches some numbers on how much this animal-free beef would cost. Growing meat in lab is resource-intense and expensive, it turns out. One of the biggest costs? Feeding the little beasties.”
My philosophy is that it’s better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe and not to explore at all.
