Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent. AW14 collection = Perfection.
"Romantic love can be dangerous. Look at Romeo and Juliet. It was originally written as a cautionary tale: When kids fall in love, it can end tragically. It’s about kids who are experiencing love hormonally for the first time. You throw in a generational conflict and everybody’s walking around with swords, it’s inevitable that you’ll end up with dead children. People invade countries over love. Despots—Alexander the Great, Napoleon—rampaged throughout the world because the more love they got, the less they felt they had. If you think of the great love stories—Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Gatsby—none of them end with the boy and girl kissing and riding off into the sunset. They all share a fundamental impossibility. It can never be, but wasn’t it grand to experience? Because the one thing about intense romantic love is, good or bad, you feel very, very alive."
