I renew my wardrobe quite frequently. A piece of clothing hangs in my closet typically for three months at the most, sometimes less. After that I sell or give them forward. It’s quite rare that I find myself wondering how come I have a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. It’s a skill to know how to let go. In addition to the circulating clothes, I have a few all time favorites that I wouldn’t trade for anything.  ***  Uudistan vaatevalikoimaani tiuhaan tahtiin. Samat vaatteet pysyvät vaatehuoneeni rekissä kuukaudesta kolmeen. Sitten laitan ne eteenpäin. Harvemmin löydän itseni kummastelemasta kuinka vaatehuone on täynnä vaatteita, mutta siellä ei ole mitään päälle pantavaa. On taito oppia päästämään irti. Vaihtuvien vaatteiden lisäksi valikoimassani on muutama kestosuosikki, joita en vaihtaisi mihinkään.

Feel the past

You can see the past in the worn pavement in the and on the faces of people. You can see it in the thick tree, standing as firm as hundred years ago. Old clothing tell us their story in their own simple way. It’s the spectators job to interpret those messages and place the garment in the correct decade. (…)
