It is spring! What can better describe spring feelings as Goethe’s famous scene from “Faust”:
“Released from ice are brook and river / By the quickening glance of the gracious Spring; / The colors of hope to the valley cling, / And weak old Winter himself must shiver, / Withdrawn to the mountains, a crownless king: / Whence, ever retreating, he sends again / Impotent showers of sleet that darkle / In belts across the green o’ the plain. / But the sun will permit no white to sparkle; / […] / Yonder afar, from the hill-paths blinking, / Their clothes are colors that softly gleam. / I hear the noise of the village, even; / Here is the People’s proper Heaven; / Here high and low contented see! / Here I am Man,— dare man to be!” (Faust, by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, translated by Bayard Taylor, available online here)
Since the opening of the exhibition “The Divine Comedy” at the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt, I am in the mood to page through the great classics of the world literature (therefore the verses of Goethe). But this blog entry is not about art and literature; it is all about fashion, being in the mood for wearing bright vernal colours, taking off the winter coats, wearing sunglasses and fancy shoes without socks, just enjoying the life, in style:-)
The nature wears such beautiful colours! So shake the winter off, go out and enjoy the life!
La vita e bella:-)
