Oppenheimer Strikes Again - He's Looking Beyond Fashion Now. Much Deeper In Fact.

My dear friend Oppenheimer used to feed me so much scintillating stuff on menswear. He introduced me to the Agnelli cuff. He has taken me to all sorts of half-baked tailors and forced me to try their services. He has put new brands under my nose and poo pooed the peacocks before they started fanning their feathers at Pitti and he ear marked fads long before they were to fade.

Last night we were conversing on Whatsapp and he was being exceptionally difficult and stonewalling my efforts to break the ice. Somehow we landed on spirituality and he mentioned Alan Watts, a man I'd never heard of. 'Another Viktor Frankl' I thought and rolled my eyes - until that is, a You Tube link popped up in my window and when I clicked through to this....

My dear Oppenheimer has struck gold again, this time philosophically.
