Juan Vidal's SS08, A Poetry.

I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent,
and you hear me from far away and my voice does not touch you.
It seems as though your eyes had flown away
and it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth

As all things are filled with my soul

you emerge from the things, filled with my soul.

You are like my soul, a butterfly of dream,

and you are like the word Melancholy.

I like for you to be still, and you seem far away.
It sounds as though you were lamenting, a butterfly cooing like a dove.
And you hear me from far away, and my voice does not reach you:
Let me come to be still in your silence.

And let me talk to you with your silence

that is bright as a lamp, simple as a ring.

You are like the night, with its stillness and constellations.

Your silence is that of a star, as remote and candid.

I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent,

distant and full of sorrow as though you had died.

One word then, one smile, is enough.

And I am happy, happy that it's not true.

Juan Vidal started designing bridal and evening gowns at the age of 15! Here's his SS08 collection which is an ode of love. I love the grace, the style, and the utmost femininity it exudes, I decided to complement the pictures with a poem. To know more about this Spanish genius and the (wearable) clothes he designs, check: www.juanvidaldesign.com

To end this post, what's the title of the poem I used? The first one to guess gets a huge, massive, sloppy, wet...Besos!
