What Did You Say: Haruki Murakami

"And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over.  But one thing is certain.  When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in.  That's what this storm's all about."

Culture Vulture: Balenciaga: Spanish Master

amazing Saturday @ the Balenciaga: Spanish Master exhibit at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute.  just a great chance to see the key items that define the magical mystique of Balenciaga.  i'm starting to bring along my Muji pocket sketchbook around with me to capture these moments of inspiration.  So what better place than to start with the master couturier Balenciaga.
