Look 2: The Rose

Autumn Winter 2019 / 2020

Whereas Look 1 represents one of the prince’s favorite activities, Look 2 is about his first love–the single rose that he nurtures and cares for on his little planet. The fabric of the jacket is woven with delicate metallic threads, suffused with the glow of the prince’s childish devotion, and the silk itself is embossed to hint at the multiple layers of the petals.

 

However, the silhouette and punishing monochrome of this outfit create a distinct tension with the beauty of the fabric; the prince’s rose is incredibly demanding, and the exaggerated shoulder pads are literally engulfing the wearer. From the illustrations in the original novella, the prince’s signature color is mint green, which is conspicuously absent here–the look is completely rose-colored, rose-covered.

But the little prince couldn’t contain his admiration.
“How lovely you are!”
“Aren’t I?” the flower answered sweetly. “And I was born the same
time as the sun . . .”
The little prince realized that she wasn’t any too modest, but she was so dazzling!

So the little prince, despite all the goodwill of his love, had soon come to mistrust her. He had taken seriously certain inconsequential remarks and had grown very unhappy.
“I shouldn’t have listened to her,” he confided to me one day. “You must never listen to flowers. You must look at them and smell them. Mine perfumed my planet, but I didn’t know how to enjoy that.”

“I ought to have realized the tenderness underlying her silly pretensions. Flowers are so contradictory! But I was too young to know how to love her.” (Source)
