stories from a journey through fashion and style
I wonder what all your items with text say. And, all being from the same designer, is it the same text? Related texts? I love the fact that this one is mirror writing (or are go photographed in the mirror?).
jessica: the text is printed both straight and inverted. as far as i know, all of the text is from one short story by oscar wilde -- "the canterville ghost". as soon as i found out where the text came from, having never read "the canterville ghost", i set a goal for myself to read the story this summer. i have yet to fulfill this goal. but i still have lots of time to do so!
Wow! It makes me so happy to know that it is proper text and not just nonsense! I have read lots of Oscar Wilde but I think not that one... I shall perhaps look out for it too.
jessica: i just read "the canterville ghost" over the weekend. now i wish i could figure out why the designers chose that particular story to feature. perhaps if i can pinpoint the part in the story where the text comes from i might have some clues. maybe i am overthinking this ... but it is so much fun for me!
