Smiling in Rain

Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and it’s incredible beauty.”

Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour
Karl Lagerfeld is doing “masstige”. It has been confirmed (after many rumours) that Macy’s is launching a new initiative that will rotate one-off designer capsule collections every two months, starting late next year. Monsieur Lagerfeld is taking part in the collaboration which is something he hasn’t done in over six years, and demonstrates his determination to branch into the world of lower price points.

Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren said “Karl Lagerfeld holds a unique place in the world of fashion, an icon who is the ultimate modernist. Through the decades, his style and vision have marked the history of design. It is a tremendous honor to bring his inimitable perspective to our fashion customer.”
