Bonjour petals, have I ever told you about my love for Jacques Tati? yes I know I have but, I got this t-shirt and another (which I am sure I will share too) for Christmas and I love it, thought I would go the whole Tati hog with half mast trousers vintage £6! and blazer, which is part of a suit I got yonks ago on eBay but with Mr T. Gold, you would not believe the looks I got because of my white socks you would think I was wearing scuba flippers. Does it ever bother you people staring at you because you dress different to the 'norm'?
There is just something about Tati's work that gets me right to the core, its sweet and innocent yes but Tati's observant view on modernity and how we isolate ourselves from people the more advanced we get as a society is so spot on. As well as how easy it is to misunderstand a situation and people and the fact that he didn't need words to convey so many things, is just so inspiring to me, Playtime has to be one of my all time favourite films. Every shot of his work is like a piece of art so much has gone into it. But now for the funny faces;
