Famous quotes containing the words bayley and/or stephen:

    Fashion is primitive in its insistence on exhibitionism, which withers in isolation. The catwalk fashion show with its incandescent hype is its apotheosis. A ritualized gathering of connoiseurs and the spoilt at a spotlit parade of snazzy pulchritude, it is an industrialized version of the pagan festivals of renewal. At the end of each seasonal display, a priesthood is enjoined to carry news of the omens to the masses.
    —Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)

    Two voices are there: one is of the deep;
    It learns the storm-cloud’s thunderous melody,
    —James Kenneth Stephen (1859–1892)
