K and I met at the Barnes Foundation for this recent collaboration. I couldn’t think of a better location dignified enough to represent his brand. I’ve seen K Vaughn in action over two decades as he solidly built his own brand from stem to stern, one stitch at a time.  This of course is no easy task. However, K Vaughn year after year lives up to the task of showering his customers with the best fabrics he can find between his haunts from Philly to New York.  This season Kevin’s mood reflect’s the weather; April still feeling like fall, thus his current mood.

About The Photographer: 

Born and raised in Milan , Italy, where, in the mythical eighties, he decided to give his body and soul to one of his favorite hobbies : ….. soccer.

He moves to New York in 1991 where he starts working with some of the great names in the business : Fabrizio Ferri, Steven Klein and Paolo Roversi.

His hobbies: movies, interior design, history books, art , museum visits… while sometimes , inevitably , he still puts on his soccer shoes…

Alexandra’s astonishing image made my brain tick-tock about how people sometimes get what they deserve. And, of course, those who heralded the man of orange bought the ticket he was selling and now they”re in the same hellhole of his madness that the rest of us are in. This is “The Price Of The Ticket For A Honeymoon in Hell” and WE ALL are paying it…in tears….and for some, in cheers….. Mr. and Mrs. America got EXACTLY what they asked for – TUNE IN, FREAK OUT, GET BEATEN!

“No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride…and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well….maybe chalk it up to forced consciousness expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten” – Hunter S. Thompson (“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, 1971)

THE PRICE OF THE TICKET FOR A HONEYMOON IN HELL

.

When he drooled like a junkyard dog, “What the Hell do you have to lose?!”

She thought it was cute and charming to her ears and let her common sense snooze

And, now shackled to that mad rat of lies she now must pay for what she decided to choose

Missy America batted her lashes without surprise, as he slimed Mexicans, McCain, Muslims and more

She said, “They are the other and me as a real American is what he adores”

Willingly she was as he came a callin’ with a Barnumesque yawn

Yet, now the damnable reality has started to dawn

Now, it’s her turn to be in for a spine-chilling shock 

Dearly disheveled we are gathered here today

The doors are sealed and guarded, so none contained within these walls can get away 

Tyrannical misogyny makes his soul drool

Would be easy to call him a fool

Let’s go for a few words more complicated and cool 

Will this madness ever cease?

Never shall it be, for Lucifer is whom he has to please

Missy America was seduced by his bravado

She figured how bad could he possibly be

He promised me a wall to keep me safe

And, an economy that would make me feel ever so great

He even said, I would be the way of great once again

How bad could he be?

What kind of pain could he possibly inflict?

The answer is dainty n’ dear Missy, “This is the rat you decided to pick!”

Not so pure she may be

Yet, compared to his intentions, she is virginal evergreen

Man with crest of bleached sheet upon his head said in a growl, “Do you take this Miss?”

Mu Qiao: What is Love?

WHAT IS LOVE?

.

Each of us has different answers. In my opinion, love is more of a factor in the details of our lives than in the case of making pledges. Our life is inseparable from the material, also the expression of love. In love, we often use a variety of small gifts to express the emotion for each other, different items appear in different occasions, carrying different meanings. Then, that item will appear in our usual life scene for a long time, reminding us of those special moments and spaces.

There are also a variety of small gifts between me and my girlfriend, and then these little gifts are scattered in every corner of our room, such as sofas, tables, beds and even ceilings. Over time, these small gifts that have come into my life at specific times gradually become integrated into the environment and form an integral part of my room. Whenever I see them, I will remember specific sweet moment. These meaningful objects appear particularly interesting and vivid in a small space. However, at the same time, we may always neglect the existence of these objects, forget to recall the happiness of life, and be trapped in the endless vortex of working and studying.

So, I intend to record those gifts at home. Although each of them is static, it always invites people to think of dynamic scenes of life. Dolls on the couch, piggy bank on the desk, toy dog ​​on the bed, flowers on the dining-table, Polaroid on the small end table, balloons on the ceiling, jewelery cups on the coffee table, and champagne glasses and candles in the cupboard. Each of them was separated from things nearby, highlighted under the spotlight, and presented in the center of our sight. In this way, the individual meaning of each gift has been emphasized, these special memories have been retrieved.

Love exists in loving and memorizing.
