Marshmallow Memories

frontIf you’ve spent time in France, you know what “Fraises Tagada” is. It’s a squishy, yummy, pillowy, marshmallowy pink candy covered in glittering sugar crystals. At school, anytime someone happened to have a bag of them, we would turn into pigeons before bread crumbs, extending our hands to receive these drops that seemed to have been made of pink cotton candy clouds. It’s always the sweet simple pleasures that create the fondest memories. As a nod and a wink to those days and to my favorite candy, I decided to design a sweatshirt (puffy and soft, just like a fraise tagada) for fun, without the calories.

POETIC DISCO

DISCO BALL BY FLAVIA MASSON

DISCO BALL

Let’s dance on broken mirrors

In search of the invisible

Moving to phosphorescent sound

Around floating shards of light

In a slow motion confetti collision

From a traveling globe

Reflecting flames of glass

Illuminated Illusions

Flashes of movement from radiant spirits

Through the spinning optical twilight

The night is endlessly bright.

How not to wear pants

“Je n’aime pas le pantalon lorsqu’il est porté de façon revendicatrice. C’est à dire ‘je suis l’égal de l’homme,’ le côté George Sand, suffragette. Je n’aime pas ça du tout. Je pense qu’en portant un pantalon, une femme peut développer son maximum de féminité pour lutter contre lui. C’est un handicap qu’il faut surmonter par sa féminité.” 

YVES SAINT LAURENT

In other words; wear pants as proof that you’re a woman. Don’t wear them to prove that women can also wear pants.

YvES!
