Virginia Woolf not only understood words but also the importance of clothes, as she describes clothing in “Orlando” as having “more important offices than merely to keep us worn. They change our view of the world and the world’s view of us.” I agreed with her, the clothes could say a thousand words for us, you won't have to speak to communicate and that's the power not a lot of people understands.
This year Maria Grazia Chiuri was inspired by the Ballets Russes of Picasso. For her Haute Couture Spring 2019 Collection, she decided to mount a circus, literally, but no animals, no danger, no forced labor (at least for the animals) and behind the chicest swimming caps she hide all the girls (were they all girls? you don't know) , but it's a magnificent metaphor, is not important if it's a boy or a girl behind the clothes, is the person you want to be and the life you can bring to those clothes.
