we don't live here any more

nick cave's fans were disappointed with the release of 'the good son' in 1990, in a great deal because of it's lack of cave's typical darkness. a year before the musician went to brazil with his band, the bad seeds, for a concert, and ended moving to there for 3 years. the reason for the move and in part from his change, was viviane carneiro, a brazilian journalist. they moved together to vila madalena in sao paulo, where luke cave was born. 

'the good son' begins with the portuguese/english music 'foi na cruz' and were inspired by his brazilian times and his relationship with viviane.

'often the hearts of men and women are stirred,

as likewise they are soothed in their sorrows more by example than by words. and therefore, because i too i have known some consolation from speech had with one who was a witness thereof, am i now minded to write of the sufferings which have sprung out of my misfortunes, for the eyes of one who, though absent, is of himself ever a consoler. this i do so that, in comparing your sorrows with mine, you may discover that yours are in truth nought, or at the most but of small account, and so shall you come to bear them more easily.'

for this AW13, pedro lourenço did not present a show in the paris ready-to-wear calendar, deciding for the launching of a catwalk-video with the direction of paulo vainer and the modeling of his favorite, thairine garcia. the video conception is a fashion-dream showcase, where a rotation-shoot gives a 360 degrees view of the model and a real-life experience of the clothes.
the upside-down V neckline and the cuts under the waist are exactly are my favourites.
