Bye Gone Days x Tropical Jet Set
It is a new experience to be living through such dramatic change. In a few short months, we find ourselves living in the present and a by gone age simultaneously. Gone suddenly are the new international jet set. The age where we all could count ourselves part of that elite if we wanted to. Travel was cheap, and destinations ripe for the picking. And again we feel like things will never be the same. Not unlike the bygone days of the original jet set elite.
"My interest in the tropical socialite has much to do with forgotten memories. I want to visit the place where the patina’d mirror of our own experience, blurs together with discolored family photos, mingles with glamorous magazine spreads and the silver screen, mixes with rat pack crooners like cocktails made in silver shakers. A dissociative fugue of champagne goblets and Frank Sinatra." - Mark Gabriel
