Biiiiiiiitch. Straight from Mens Fashion week in Paris.
I love it all so much. Every single piece would look so good on me.
AHHHH New York Fashion Week! How exciting!
Every night I get to sit and click through the shows that I know and love with a glass of wine and pure glee spread across my face. I’ve built a connection to these designers and brands, knowing somewhat to expect regardless if I check out a show for my personal preference or out of pure industry respect.
If time perceives, sometimes I go venturing off in a direction that normally wouldn’t suit my fancy. Cue Edun, the biggest surprise to come out of 2013 NYFW this far.
Say, isn’t that bono’s wife’s ethically charged company?? Why yes, you just so happen to be right. And it just so happens to be dope… or at least starting from this point going forward.
Danielle Sherman, the lady who helped start up The Row and was design director at T by Alexander for the past 5 years, was given carte blanche to do whatever with the line. Success! I love the silhouettes, the colours and I’d kill so many pieces from the collection.
Nice move celebrity couple, nice move.
I am so stoked for the Saint Laurent re-brand. Hedi Slimane is a genius, straight up.
He’s all about starting a new ‘dialogue’ among the youth within fashion. In the first video for Saint Laurent, Hedi showcases his new classically designed ballerina flat. Mixing it with leather and flannel is refreshing, and unlike anything we have ever seen from a fashion house.
These shoes cost $1000.. what were you thinking?
YG has been working with Jeezy for a while, but was officially signed to CTE World in June.
Did you think I’m talking about my hair? well, you’re right.. but thats only part 1 of the pun. There is also a cat holding a boom box on my shirt.
Speaking of hair; you may have noticed that mine has changed. I could tell you an woeful story about how I went to a random hair dressers on a whim and they fucked up my most beloved feature. I could tell you about how I fantasized revenge against that hair-dressing-slut for 2 weeks and was forced to wear my hair up every day… but whatever.. I’m fine now.
I fucking semi-fixed it myself with box dye and some light scissor work. For the past couple days I have been wearing it as a mane of tangled curls and fuzz which requires very little maintenance, but quite a variety of hair products. I use a tapered wand to do random pieces through-out quick time in the morning to add definition, mash in a bunch of product, and boom! Lion hair.
Lets all just take a minute to pay tribute to bumble & bumble: the best hair products in the world.
Top 3 fav [in order]:
Message to the antagonist; I have a lot of hair, and it really does need to be thinned out with some sort of cutting technique. Also, maybe you should practice colour matching.
Cat shirt from forever 21 circa 2011, Zara black skinnies, Jeffrey Campbell boots, American Apparel bag, and one of my best friends Sarah’s coat. Best friends, same size? double closets. It’s just the rule.
I love this editorial from HUNGER styled by Holly Ounstead and photographed by Alexander Jordan. The athletic ‘trend’ has hit the fashion world hard with girls everywhere mixing nike kicks with dresses and topped off baseball caps.
I love mixing worlds to create an interesting, harmonious outfit; but I hate to admit sportswear’s as a ‘trend’. In subcultures its always been cool to rock Nike, Pony and Adidas. I remember when I was 15 and really wanted to be a thug (obviously, nothing has changed), i bought brightly coloured special edition sneakers to match my fly adidas track suits. Hip Hop culture has always shown athletic wear love, and although the masses are running for their sneakers and back-packs we should at least acknowledge sportswear has always been cool.
One thing about taking influence from other cultures is adopting an item and putting a fresh twist on it. I am lovin this dirty-pretty-jock look. I think its the perfect balance of street-meets-fashion in a sexy hooligan kinda way.
Plus, sneakers are comfy as shit.
