Bright Old Things

I'm definitely down for celebrating beauty through age. Women who inspire fabulous individuals for a series of decades, not just a series of seasons. Women who provide soundtracks and mindsets that remain the foundation for a person's creative endeavors via the brands we love. Women who embrace their age by developing their identity, rather than changing it.

These campaigns have inspired me to listen to all of my old favorite music, and to learn more about the literature of a time already gone by. Its a clever marketing move from both fashion houses - but its one that actually does make total sense (providing you appreciate both the woman and the brand respectively). Hopefully we'll see more campaigns which suggest an alternative to the everyday beauty we've become accustomed to: I'm certainly more moved by these incredible and accomplished women - and that's what its all about, right?
