Four-legged fashionSunday, September 2 2012
Tiger sweatshirt by Kenzo. Croc-effect leather mini by Aleander Wang. Michael Kors albino watch. Nike Free Run+ 3 sneaks. Jenna Leigh triangle bra. PS11 by Proenza Schouler. Frogskin sunnies by Oakley.
A sold-out, unabashedly branded sweatshirt always comes top of a pre-fall wishlist, wouldn’t you agree? As usual, combination of said sweatshirt being nowhere to be found despite regular outbursts on the pixel platforms (instagram and pinterest), and a price tag on the lower end of the high-fashion spectrum multiples desirability times 10. Throw in the odd off-duty model for good measure and item becomes a must-have, in my books anyway. One can always turn to the copycat Mecca that is Zara to see if any tiger offerings have rocked-up yet. Sure enough, there it is – albino and paired down to the max – but unquestionably on show. I almost caved .. and then decided no. It shall be 90s aesthetic or nothing. And now, ladies and gentlemen let me take the four-legged statement to a whole other level for you. Frog(skin) sun goggles, (fake) crocodile mini, calf (leather) satchel. Bam. Sartorial trip to the zoo. Please note, in prevention of animal stampedes, make sure you wear the speediest getaway runners out there. High fashion with Nike. Must be a first. Just do it.
