Today’s POP is Isabelle, who cannot wait for her great escape from great metropolis life.
Although it is still raining today here in London, I promise you the sun will shine. So when PRADA sent us this little audio tale, introducing their Postcards Sunglasses line, I thought I gotta share it, hoping and awaiting tomorrow’s sun. The Postcard glasses are available in six tones, each dedicated to a metropolis city and its twin escape – my favorite: Los Angeles and its escape to Santa Monica… Oh I daydream of a sun-kissed life after POP!
NB Life after POP?
The postcard here is VERY Richard Hamilton, non? Bathers A, Bathers B, People get down to Whitley Bay…
And here’s the audio tale, shot by Steven Meisel, featuring model Raza Zukauskaite.
There was my Riviera love
peering at me over dark glasses.
a mixture of dreamy childishness
and insidious intent.
A brash coquette. Bold and shy.
She talked about this and that.
Only half listening, I watched….
We were at the seaside
Water the color of a cloudy bottle.
Maybe Forte dei Marmi or Montauk,
Biarritz or Setùbal.
Under the cliffs of Cornwall or
sprawled on the sands of the endless Pacific with Santa Monica….
A faded postcard is my sacred relic.
In lavender ink and her loopy hand:
Wish we were here.
