Reincarnation, Fashion and Reinvention

Ideas from the past haunt some of us…we love to delve back into history, read about ‘the old days’, hear the legends, tell and re-tell the old family or cultural stories.

I am always so pleased when modern pop culture ties in with Horror Addicts themes and topics, showing me yet again that our sensibilities are everywhere in the world, peeking out at us (and the normies) much like watching ghosts…

The Imperial couple is a romantic fantasy and who hadn’t wanted, even for a moment, to secretly think she is descended from or might have even once BEEN a princess?
These ideas sometimes haunt the edges of our mind, just before sleep, or in half-remembered dreams.

Reincarnation: The setting is a lovely palace, Schloss Leopoldskron, now a hotel in Salzberg and is the prelude to the December 2 CHANEL Metiers D’Art 2014-15 seasonal fashion show.

It has been very hard for me to wait to see it and then harder still to wait to share it the moment the video for it popped up on the 4th!
The opulence of the setting, the film preceding it, and the fashions themselves provide us a rich story even if we do not buy expensive couture or travel as much as we like.

We, like the ghosts, can peer into worlds both real and created, that can haunt but also enchant us.
