“When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground” – old African proverb.
Past generations have always been considered as a real source of wisdom and inspiration in various societies.
Is this still true in Western civilizations, where too often old people are left at the borders of society?
A proof that older people can teach us many things about life, culture and fashion comes from the blog Advanced Style.
This very popular blog highlights the unique style of some “Golden Girls”, spotted by the photographer and fashion editor Ari Seth Cohen in the streets of New-York City.
The blogger says that he has always been fascinated by elder people as he finds them “more interesting because they are of an age where they don’t have to impress anyone and can wear what they want”.
The ladies who are the protagonists of this blog are going to be the main characters of the upcoming documentary that will be released next Summer.
What is fascinating about these stylish ladies is their joy and pragmatism about life, which is expressed through their passion for beauty and fashion. They are not scared to show their personalities, adopting eccentric looks and taking life with irony. Seniors are too often ignored by the fashion system, but they represent a very interesting crowd of timeless style.
If you hear their stories and look at how good and fashionable they appear despite their age, the fear of getting old is suddenly transformed in the desire of getting old!
Young people can learn from these women how to feel confident and how to be themselves in every situation.
The movie trailer is now available on youtube and no doubt the documentary will be as ironic and pleasant.
Remember to bring your grandma with you to the cinema and give a look at her closet before getting ready to “steal” something unique for the event!
