011: everything has an end

to be played at: Tsumori Chistao

for the grown woman that maintains her girl sparkle

mood: This playlist was simply inspired by the impending end to cold/bitter Winter. I focused on the beautiful song “Exits” by L. Pierre – the song Frédéric Sanchez used to open Tsumori Chisato’s latest collection. I juxtaposed slow waltzes with Hawaiian-tang. There is a sadden/beauty to this playlist that results in hope. This hope is prevalent in all of Tsumori Chistao’s collections. Without speaking, Chistao’s models scream, I am grown, but still kid-like – her clothes shout, I am elegant, but still cartoon-like. I hope we all become weathered, but never grow up, just like Chistao.

“Everything sounds so clean and clinical and perfect today, but I love hearing something that sounds worn and suggests the music has a history. It’s gorgeous and sad at once, as though it’s lived a life and survived to tell the tale.” – Aidan Moffat
