A Tale of Two Women
You have already had a chance to notice (and we are sure you did) that this blog is being created by two completely different characters which are surprisingly harmonic in their differences. An outfit can actually fit everyone, but the effect usually depends on the personality. Damroca has a big variety of looks – she is choosing them depending on her moods and she plays the part the outfit is making her play. Sometimes she does not even know who she really is. Kat and her constant state of inborn, sophisticated elegance with the avant-garde touch of wilderness, affects Damroca like a soothing balm, like a road sign to the golden mean, between pure madness and a high level fashion, and class.
The reflection drove our thoughts to the movie, Thelma & Louise directed by Ridley Scott. “Two women on the road” was completely breaking the tradition of the road trip movie genre - the genre reserved for men. We are aware of the fact that this movie, this tale of two women is occupied with violence and rage, but there is also room for love, drama, passion and friendship. Every part of a woman’s life is taken into consideration. Thelma and Louise – the sense and the sensible, accompany each other on the last adventure; different, strong, invasive but in the end sticking together. They hit it and kept going as fugitives from the world of gender clichés. As the movie is an in depth study of the women’s situation in the late 1980’s, it is also a substantial insight in the fashion of this period: tight, high-waisted jeans, trashy patterns, leather, intense colours and male accessories. All of this create a stunning impression of nonchalance, sexuality and recklessness.
Strong personalities as we are, have it difficult to be socially accepted, We know exactly that we are never allowed to look down, cause we might end up crying. Nobody wants that to happen, especially us. That is why in this week’s photo shooting we present ourselves in the roles of Thelma and Louise - in the bodies of women who sacrificed everything to stay on the path of their journey to freedom. The fun part is – you may never know who’s T. and who is L.?
