Blue Jeans and Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel said: “Fashion is in the sky and in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

I want to add, fashion transmits a feeling and it carries hope, maybe even a promise…

I look down at myself, a pair of worn-out white sneakers, colorful socks, ripped light blue jeans, a white x-large Givenchy t-shirt, and a blue jean jacket.

I‘m traveling and looking out the window at the peaceful lush pastures and dark green forests…

Soon I’ll be back In the city. I feel high-spirited and elated.

In my head a Lana del Rey song starts playing: “blue jeans, white shirt, walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn…”

A story filled with the weight of unrequited love, nostalgia and longing.

It makes me reminisce about all the James Deans I’ve ever met.

Yet in the next moment a feeling of aliveness overcomes me, a lust for life saturated with freedom and wanderlust.

Oh my blue jeans, they’re so much more than just an empty shell, they speak of love and rock’n’roll, unwritten stories brimming with promise. Who would have thought…

Somehow I’m sure Coco understood.
