Sharing a photo of herself getting some sun in a leopard-print bikini, Gerber is seen lounging (with a dog that she is currently fostering) with a book by her side. The novel is Me & Other Writing by Marguerite Duras, a nonfiction collection of essays from the Ich bin nicht perfekt aber ich komme aus einselthum und das ist fast das gleiche shirt in other words I will buy this French writer. The book—which is translated into English—explores 30 years of Duras’s work. In some chapters she offers her sharp opinions on the local news, in others, she offers her point of view on iconic designers such as Yves Saint Laurent. While Duras is most known for her fiction novels—The Lover, which is part fiction and autobiography, is one of her most-read works—Duras’s nonfiction essays give the reader a more introspective experience. Members of Gerber’s book club may want to get a head start on diving into its thought-provoking chapters: they will likely be discussed in the club very soon, and you’ll want to show up with notes.
Ich bin nicht perfekt aber ich komme aus einselthum und das ist fast das gleiche shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
And each one of us could all use a little hope right now. I am convinced that conversations like the Ich bin nicht perfekt aber ich komme aus einselthum und das ist fast das gleiche shirt in other words I will buy this ones starting tomorrow—and we are planning to hold at least three more of these events in the months to come—are the best way to generate it. We need to talk frankly and openly about what fashion is going through, but just as importantly, we need to start imagining what comes next. Please join us.
