We are all kings, but not.
Order something and try to not get it right now. You want it now? You want it all? Tipically kingish. Or not?
the crowd question
We are always looking for new ways to get out of the crowd. The problem is that the fast-finished-products are rarely meet with the quality and long-lasting expectations … and we all know that every king wants quality !
King’s dresses is getting a new look.
While working on a glove which I made inch by inch by hand, I was thinking about kings’s trends.
How much did they have to wait for an unique piece of clothing made according to the latest fashion trends? Weeks? Months?
Were they worried that the neighbor king will wear that trendy ruffled round-collar before her/his own seamstress could sew the newest unique neckwear?
How much stress and pressure do the tailor and seamstresses of a royal court had to endure when they were working on a seven-kingdom-famous garment? …. and what happened when somebody missed the direction of the cutline or stitching? Did they take the head of the main taylor?
And how much was the price of a kingish stuff?
the answer is in history …
What makes you more kingish?
… but the things have changed since the greatest kings. Now you can buy almost anything. Except the inner attitude… Sad news..
The good news is that you can train your soul anytime! Here are some hints which can transform you more kingish:
- Be original. Buy original. Search for antiques. Did you know that the fast furniture is out of fashion (from) this year? (Have you seen Drew Pritchard’s TV series about hunting incredible treasuries? It is on Discovery Channel, Amazon Prime Video and I’m a big fan of it! 🙂
- be curious. You might not always know all about a product and the how-it-made proccesses, but – with a mug of coffee and 5 minutes silent – you can read a short story anytime about how Napoleon influenced the fashion supporting the jacquard manufacturing … Literacy is so kingish! (The Age of Napoleon: Costume from Revolution to Empire, 1789-1815)
- be patience measuring the time. Learn to wait.. Try to deal with the fear of missing the latest fad.
- be proud of every single step you made in order to transform the world in better.
