“There is a time of the year when it is essential to awaken. That time is spring.” Every so often, it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just enjoy the moment. And these moments, in essence, happen to be our life. There’s something to be said for spring, with its revived energy and the temperatures on the rise, which creates the perfect backdrop to fall back in love with life, embracing all the joy of being.
Every now and then, inspirations turn into dreams, and dreams do come true. Katrina Law is the inspiration for our cover this season. She is beautiful, exotic, sexy, talented, and hardcore. We are also grateful to people who make us happy. Broadway producer Daryl Roth is a ten-time Tony Award winner with over 100 productions on her CV. One of those is the acclaimed Kinky Boots, which carries a big torch for acceptance and loving ourselves (and others) for who we truly are. “We are made to persist. That’s how we find out who we are.” -Tobias Wolff.
As Aristotle once said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” Beautiful female portraits by Gustav Klimt define the feminine presence, and the Grand Opéra de Paris links timeless classics with the dreams of a progressive future. Music is an art form, and all art forms stem from love. 2CELLOS: Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, are astounding, with a uniquely-diverse playlist ranging from classical to film music, from pop to rock.
Any kind of engaging study should be food for both mind and body. Fitness is something that makes us feel and look good, and so we present to you Fitness Couture, along with its detailed dossier of regimens. And as for beauty and fashion, we are channeling decades of high-volume glamour and it’s Saturday Night Fever all over again. Our hottest looks are renewed and edgy, with an artistic twist.
Spring is the best season for the craziness of love, the rejuvenation of body and soul, and all sorts of cultural musts. So celebrate every day, sing a song, read a good poem, or see a fine film; just kick off your shoes and dance to the rhythm of spring!
