women of character

C’est dans la chute que je prends mon élan.

Have you seen Anthropologie’s new campaign featuring short video profiles of women that inspire the brand?  T pointed me in the direction of their October muse, Paris Opera Ballet prima and choreographer Marie-Agnès Gillot, and I found her words so inspiring:

“My body is the ultimate expression of myself.  I train and learn more about it- more about me- daily.”

“Discipline is the cornerstone of freedom, not the opposite.”

I’m also a big fan of the clothing at Anthro, so seeing them in motion was a big treat.  Oh, and I suppose the Parisienne background might have won me over a bit, too…ANTOCT15_PARISFASH_014_120_RGB_postScreen Shot 2015-09-28 at 9.52.10 AM
