Catwalk. Marni Spring Summer 2015.

How come? Fashion designers seek for inspiration from many sources. Past decades, films, literature, architecture, an ethnic group, nation, flora and fauna, some have a specific muse that inspires. Ways are many. I find it amusing try to identify the original inspiration of some collection. Looking at Marni SS 2015 collection my mind turns to eastern martial arts like jujutsu and such.

The idea of oversized simple belt made of cloth is easily done as a DIY-project. In that case it would be unnecessary to stick in black colour. For example this long belt made of denim would make different feeling.

But to be true there is one exception here. Oh yes, there is this hair. Nowadays shoulder-long hair with men is quite rare. Maybe that is the key that makes his style memorable. The full stop above the letter i.

Okay. The list from the beginning needs some trimming.
Simple things are many times the best. Like having a good cup of coffee, a lovely pot of tea, reading a marvelous book, sleeping as long as needed in own bed, chat with a dear friend, laughing out loud, walking in a woods (this is good as it is).
