Lorenz had his imprinting experiments where goslings followed humans. In my case, I reckon my one-track mind comes from how I used to accidentally say my father’s initials were YSL, not NSL, because I kept starring at the insignia on his briefcase*. There’s something very elegant about those diagonals. To be fair, I was four. These days, I have to keep explaining that brand loyalty is a weird irrational thing, no matter how others point out alternatives. But welcome my gorgeous beauty into my life, I been craving you since September and have no idea why I delayed gratification. I have fengshui-ed it with the superstitious fervour of a Saturn In 2nd House, scented it like an olfactory hedonist from The Temple Of Bastia, and it’s red.. and gold! Also. Ever since I acquired it, I’ve done an impressive number of hours of productive work. The conclusion: Beauty motivates, when you are lascivious for aesthetics.
*Why don’t they make those boxy ol’-skool briefcases anymore? MacBook (Airs) would look splendid coming out of them, unlike.. backpacks. #thehorror
