SUMMER NIGHTS FLOATING BY
Morning Style Merchants. Never enjoyed the month of August before quite like this time. A quiet one, but quite lovely and serene, at times. The mornings are good, too. Listening to this Words&Music since Sunday night (click). Best program on the radio (is on BBC Radio 3). Only lasts for thirty days though then it drifts off, so… listen soon if can. Stick Faure track below on now if you can, its special. Not listening to music or radio perpetually at home anymore, as constant background diversion from self. Its all 'bout silence and the void for a spell. Sitting plotted in the void. So, with music like this is on, as a treat, R&R when working down in the Juergen* , or just cooking stuff for self, it's a proper moment. A tonic. Maybe should get out more? Inclined to think should get out less. <inserting summer night style here later, probably, almost defo>
Bazza H by David Hockney.
Slipped throw the Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy when waiting to link the Little Bloke Off The Telly on The Row last week. Knew he'd be late, so took in Daves show in 25 mins. Not mad keen have to say. Like idea of homogenous take on 50 people, made it about presence of each one/their expression and all that, but some of which he naused up. Something really bored me. Likely the other punters. So grey, straight & Middle C (heaven forbid). I do like this one of Matey Humphreys most probably cause of his look, insane tie, two tone-sneaks etc. Rest looked so bland though they were mainly lofty luminary pals of Dave. It like he couldnt draw quite a few of the heads and hands- all got a bit blobby. Struggled with bald men particularly. One good thing was how the position of feet says so much about the sitter though. Bit obsessed with how people place their feet. Its a tell of their assumed positioning on the world. Barry's pretty good on that level- keeping it real, cool, but can react when needs to.
So meanwhile, when the Words&Music episode has gone, these pieces are for the longer game. First from Gabriel, simple and super soothing.
Little different feel from Toru, with guitar. Thanks T'. <insert more style here>
Milan menswear shows flex: Thom Sweeney/Camoshita shirt.
Look, Some chap just put this picture from Milan, outside E.Armani show to be exact, up on his Instagram this morning- I doppio love that Thom Sweeney suit (super Ariston slubbing linen/silk h'bone fabric), that Camoshita shirt, its my totes favourite. But brother, its August? isn't this photoblogging supposed to be an immediate thing?! Am kidding, course, but stuck still it on out of vanity.
This is music is more gorgeous than then Ariston clothe above and its by Claude..
Ernie Tautz SS17-really like this look from shows of similar ilk. Low gorge on lapel partic' good.
<some more style, yeah? yeah>
