Wise Words

After a while, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and sharing a life. You learn that love does not mean possession and company does not mean security. You learn that loneliness is universal.

After a while, you learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises. You begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open - with the grace of a woman and the grief of a child.

After a while, you learn to build your hope on today as the future has a way of falling apart in mid-flight. Tomorrow ‘s ground can be too uncertain for plans, yet each step taken in a new direction, creates a path toward the promise of a brighter dawn.

After a while, you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. Plant your own garden and nourish your own soul - instead of waiting for someone to bring your flowers.

After a while, you learn that love, true love, always has joys. Sorrows seem ever present yet is never quite the same. After a while, becoming more than love and less than love is so difficult to define.

After a while, you learn that through it all, you really can endure and that you really are strong. You realize that you have great value to learn more and grow even more beautiful.

ya'll are so not ready for Sergei Parajanov

yeh so it aint 'i'm so special so special so special by Mavado but the techniques used in the film making by the Armenian director are intence.
this is where it gets deep..

Sergei Parajanov's "Color of the Pomegranate", a biography of the Armenian ashug Sayat Nova (King of Song), reveals the poet's life more through his poetry than a conventional narration of important events in Sayat Nova's life. The movie shows the poet growing up, discovering the female forms, falling in love, entering a monastery and dying. But these incidents are depicted in the context of what are images from Sergei Parajanov's imagination and Sayat Nova's poems, poems that are seen and rarely heard. Sofiko Chiaureli plays 6 roles, both male and female, and Sergei Parajanov, works on virtually every aspect of this film, void of any dialog or camera movement.

going out to the soviets again!!! wooo



Browns have made a name for themselves in fashion talent spotting and now the Browns team have taken it a step further by collaborating with an illustration graduate. Beatrice Boyle has just completed a fashion illustration course at London College of Fashion, the same course that myself and the fashion fresh face Keeley Shephard are studying.

Beatrice worked closely with the Browns Focus buyer to create a capsule collection of printed t-shirts, tanks and t-shirt dresses. Having worked at Jas M.B., Boyle decided to go down the route of illustration and painting as opposed to fashion and this collaboration is a perfect synergy of the two.

Beatrice Boyle for Browns Focus exclusive to Browns Focus in January with article featured in Dazed!!!
