Look 1: The Sunset

Autumn Winter 2019 / 2020

One of the prince’s favorite activities is watching the sunset, a spectacle that he’s able to enjoy on his tiny planet up to forty-four times a day. The sunsets on Earth, though, are much less frequent—and therefore more precious.

 

This opening look, the most innocent of the prince’s story, evokes a purplish sky with gleaming desert flowers and foliage. The bloomers are an overtly youthful silhouette, while the extended coat tails reference the longer-lasting sunsets of Earth, compared to the prince’s home planet.

“I really like sunsets. Let’s go look at one now . . .”
“But we have to wait . . .”
“What for?”
“For the sun to set.”
At first you seemed quite surprised, and then you laughed at yourself. And you said to me, “I think I’m still at home!”
Indeed. When it’s noon in the United States, the sun, as everyone knows, is setting over France. If you could fly to France in one minute, you could watch the sunset. Unfortunately France is much too far. But on your tiny planet, all you had to do was move your chair a few feet. And you would watch the twilight whenever you wanted to. . . .
“One day I saw the sun set forty-four times!” And a little later you added, “You know, when you’re feeling very sad, sunsets are wonderful . . .”
“On the day of the forty-four times, were you feel-ing very sad?”
But the little prince didn’t answer. (Source)
