The 2 things I really enjoyed today are a perfect mix of shallow and profound:
1. Chanel Shopping Center through the eyes of Garance
Chanel is genius! Their clothes are not really my type, BUT their FW shows are one-of-a-kind (together with LV ones). Moreover, this year they were really extraordinary, and even I felt like being a little part of it, miles away, through Garance's eyes.
To make a long story short: Chanel recreated a shopping center in Grand Palais. A real one, with real products packed Chanel style with "funny capture or hilarious pun". The models were shopping during the presentation and so was the elite audience afterwards. But the joke was on them because they couldn't leave with the Chanel products. They were supposed to go to charity/the people that really need them. A profound lesson on consumerism through shallow means of fasion. I love it! If you want to live a little the hole experience read along Garance's post . Enjoy!
2. A post from HONY
This cute newyorker is having some interesting thoughts:
"I wish I'd partied a little less. People
always say 'be true to yourself.' But that's misleading, because there
are two selves. There's your short term self, and there's your long
term self. And if you're only true to your short term self, your long
term self slowly decays."
Can shallow and profound coexist for the greater good? Sometimes they can, others not.
2 interesting reads a day keep the doctor away!
