existential wanking and the nature of coolness

"Non avevano nient’altro da dirsi? I loro occhi, però, traboccavano di parole più gravi. Mentre si sforzavano di trovare frasi banali, si sentivano riempire tutti e due da uno stesso languore. Era come un mormorio dell’anima, profondo, continuo, che l’aveva vinta sulla voce. Stupiti da questo questo nuovo, soave sentimento, non pensavano neppure a spiegarne il senso, a scoprirne la causa. Le felicità future, come le rive dei tropici, proiettavano, sulla immensità che le precede, il loro molle sentore come una brezza profumata: si scivola in quell’estasi e non importa se l’orizzonte non si vede."

-

Gustave Flaubert (via valentanna)

 They did not have anything else to say? Their eyes, however, were full of words more severe.As he struggled to find trivial phrases, they felt filled both from the same languor. It was like a whisper of the soul, deep, continuous, who had won the item. Amazed by this new, sweet feeling, not even thought to explain the meaning, to discover the cause. The future happiness, as the banks of the tropics, projected on the immensity that precedes them, their soft smell like a fragrant breeze: it slips in ecstasy and it does not matter if you do not see the horizon.

Leonard Cohen - In My Secret Life

I saw you this morning.
You were moving so fast.
Can’t seem to loosen my grip
On the past.
And I miss you so much.
There’s no one in sight.
And we’re still making love
In My Secret Life.

I smile when I’m angry.
I cheat and I lie.
I do what I have to do
To get by.
But I know what is wrong,
And I know what is right.
And I’d die for the truth
In My Secret Life.

Hold on, hold on, my brother.
My sister, hold on tight.
I finally got my orders.
I’ll be marching through the morning,
Marching through the night,
Moving cross the borders
Of My Secret Life.

Looked through the paper.
Makes you want to cry.
Nobody cares if the people
Live or die.
And the dealer wants you thinking
That it’s either black or white.
Thank G-d it’s not that simple
In My Secret Life.

I bite my lip.
I buy what I’m told:
From the latest hit,
To the wisdom of old.
But I’m always alone.
And my heart is like ice.
And it’s crowded and cold
In My Secret Life.

Giorgio Armani Privé Haute Couture Fall 2014
Drama is nothing foreign for Giorgio Armani, and the Fall 2014 Haute Couture show was packed with it. On today’s runway, Armani Privé had us seeing red — in only the best way possible — with shocks of scarlet enhancing the black and white collection (because, with a trio that bold, no additional colors are needed!). In a subtle transition from sophisticated daywear to futuristic cocktail attire and elegant eveningwear, the D’une Boite Laquée collection was an exciting escape from start to finish.
