Vintage Philosophy: Roland Barthes

On the cycles of fashion:

"Every year fashion destroys that which it has just been admiring, it adores that which it is about to destroy. Last year's fashion, now destroyed, could offer to the victorious fashion of the current year an unfriendly word such as the dead leave to the living and which can be read on certain tombstones: I was yesterday what you are today, and you will be tomorrow what I am today."
