‘Tis definitely the season of blazers, preferably stolen from boys (am sure you have one or two in your life). If you don’t (guilty), then here is a worthy option and some matchy team players.

Let the Music PlayThursday, August 24 2017

#TBT to an afternoon (not so) long ago.

You are wearing a (not so) cool pair of pink corduroy pants (the label doesn’t read Celine) and a worn-out long sleeved t-shirt (the label almost certainly reads GAP), and are sitting in strenuous silence on the floor in the sitting room. There you are, (not so) patiently twirling a bic pen at optimum speed (a skill you have perfected over time, through repeating many a similar song-and-dance — matter of speaking since the music has stopped), desperately trying to refit the reel into a much loved audio cassette.

If you know, you know.

Because to replay my teenage memories, I must rely on the tunes that kept me bouncing around day after day. For Music has always been the reason for getting up in the morning (Sorry Fashion!), and in those days, we were truly loyal: one song, one band, one tape would be on repeat for as long as its reel did not get chewed up by that temporamental cassette player.

The tactile intimacy of physical formats is dearly missed. Getting dressed, however is still very much a thing of the present. Two ideas that I attempted to string together to come up with this keepsake t-shirt, that I designed in partnership with Stine Goya. It records true memorabilia from bygone times.

But the tunes, the tunes will never be gone…

So in the words of my beloved Supertramp:

Ba-ba-ba-dow, ba-bow-dum-doo-de-dow-de-dow, de
Ba-ba-ba-dow, ba-bow-dum-de-doo-de-dow
Na na na, nana na na na na.

Knock your socks offTuesday, November 29 2016

Socks are the only styling trick I am planning to work on this Winter. Why? To keep my feet warm; I’ve learned the hard way that one cannot run around in sub-temperatures without toasty warm feet gloves. (The hard way being frostbite, after dancing too many hours bare-footed in my favourite Chelsea boots. And actually fainting from hypothermia before a fashion show during NYFW. No joke. No need to laugh, I am an embarrassment to myself and I know it.).

Perhaps like with most high fashion investments, the secret is to spend too much money on these somewhat trivial wardrobe pieces, thus triggering enough guilt to encourage high cost-per-wear. (Why I need to be tricked into wearing socks, I still don’t know.)

But while we’re on the subject of extravagant hosiery, why not give Vêtement‘s inside-out boot a whirl. Let your ankles do all the talking with this unconventional pair of nylon heels, that are as rebellious as they are functional.

Tried and tested, you’ll be happy to hear, without any incidents involving fashion blisters and/or frozen limbs. Knock your socks off!

I hereby declare cuffing season officially open. And I’m in bed with Calder this year. Since the colour genius is nowhere to be found, I have resorted to arlequin outerwear and embroidered memorabilia.
