The Rebellion Look

TEENAGE REBELLION.

As part of their development into young adults, humans must develop an Identity independent from their parents or family and a capacity for independent decision making. They may experiment with different roles, behaviours, and ideologies as part of their process of developing an identity. Teenage rebellion has been recognized within psychology as a set of behavioural traits that supersede class, culture, or race.

NATURE.

There remains some debate as to whether the causes of teenage rebellion are completely natural or necessary. Some posit that an adolescent's failure to achieve a sense of identity can result in role confusion and an inability to choose a vocation, and these pressures may develop from being viewed as adults. Indeed, in the Western world the age at which one is considered an adult (in both the cultural and legal sense) has advanced from the early teens in earlier centuries to the late teens and even early twenties in today's society.

When looking at Sean's gallery in my TitoFinePortraits site one get's the idea of some one who is looking for some thing. Perhaps he is a psy out in the middle of nowhere.

BUGATTI BLUE COLLECTION | STYLISH MAN.

LA VIE EN BLEU

Bugatti Blue, the brand’s philosophy, finds expression within every single event associated with the company. The following sections are designed to offer a glimpse of this ever-so exclusive world: “People” talks about those who have fully embraced the Bugatti lifestyle, “Places” describes cities and places symbolising the world’s fastest car, “Events” focuses on the exclusive parties where privileged guests celebrate this luxury commodity, while “News” presents new developments concerning this one-of-a-kind mindset and approach to life, in which La Vie En Bleu reveals all its various nuances.

PEOPLE

We all have our heroes — people who inspire us and who embody perfectly the characteristics that define the essence of the Bugatti man: an eccentric yet highly sophisticated image, a dynamic character extremely attentive to new technological ideas and discoveries, but above all a passion for beauty, for outstanding workmanship, for excellence that only hard work can create.

PLACES

There are places that awaken particular scenarios and with which the Bugatti family has always lived symbiotically. However, it is the tangible aspects of art, food, museums, gardens and shops that arouse the natural curiosity of the Bugatti man when visiting these places. Locales that provide the perfect backdrop for his refined taste: non-conventional, sophisticated and with that invariable touch of nonchalance.

Gunter sachs and Brigitte Bardot Look | Agoura Hills, California.

Gold Man Sachs.

Sportsman, dandy, filmmaker and womaniser, Guntar Sachs was the last of the golden-era pleasure seekers. I salute a man who took full advantage of the privileges afforded to him by his hefty inheritances, to live an enviable life of focused leisure where he was free to pursue his varied interests and passions on his own terms.

Sachs was born in southern Germany and in addition to his German nationality, Sachs received Swiss citizenship in 1976. His energy was also expended on women. In the early ’60s, he was with Soraya Esfandiary, former wife of the Shah of Iran. Later, he ran with Britt Ekland, Tina Onassis and waterskiing heiress Marina Doria. Eclipsing them all, however, was Bardot. They first met in a bar in Gassin, a village above St. Tropez, in May 1966. “I knew the minute I saw her, I was going to marry her,” he said, while she recalled being “hypnotised”. They bonded over their shared taste in Rolls-Royces, but she turned down his first proposal of marriage, relenting only when he flew over her home in a helicopter and launched a shower of red roses. Even she had to admit: “It’s not every day a man drops a ton of roses in your backyard.” In some versions of the story, he followed this grand gesture by jumping into the sea with two suitcases and moving in. A playboy in his early years, married three times. “Playboy, moi?” Sachs once asked a rather presumptuous journalist. “I would rather call myself a gentleman.” He had a point.

Brigitte Bardot.

Brigitte Bardot is a living legend. An expression she says she hates, one she doesn't understand. That doesn't stop her from being a living legend. More than an actress despite the cinematographic masterpieces (The Truth, Contempt, A very Private affair). A unique equation. The beatles adored her. For Andy Warhol, she was the first modern woman. Novelist Marguerite Duras nicknamed her "Queen Bardot", Catholic Novelist Julien Green paid tribute to her "pure Heart", while philosopher Roland Barthes unpicked her and Jean Cocteau thought she had "that je-ne-sais-quoi of a stranger who attracts the idolaters of an age deprived of gods" . Hundreds of millions of men have fallen asleep dreaming of Brigitte Bardot.
