Touchy Subject

I'm a sucker for quirky/new age textiles, especially when a single piece of garment encompasses several of them. I find the quirkier the better, it should be the ones where people make comments like "is that bubble wrap on your shoulders?!". Yes, fabric manipulation and distortion has never been this much fun. It's like texture candy for me, I can't stop touching myself my garment. It's funny how we're attracted to oddity nowadays as the concept of something being simply 'pretty' has gone stale, really stale actually. Two weeks ago, I rummaged through JOYCE's outlet mall at the South Horizon Plaza in Ap Lei Chau. Who'd known I'd find Balenciaga's SS11 ready-to-wear sleeveless teddy shirt cleverly camouflaged amongst the jungle of random printed shirts. I like to call this my bacne shirt not because it resembles something by Balenciaga and Acne, but it literally looks like ripe bacnes ready to get popped! We seriously have problems being attracted by subject matters that normally puts people off. Honestly, the things we like are never 'sexy' (depending who you talk to) as the shirt itself doesn't attenuate any part of the body, leaving arms totally exposed and your torso covered in acne.

  1. I loved the shirts from that collection, I can't believe they still had them now?? People never seem to like the same pieces of each collection as me I guess. OMFG and Rad Hourani shorts, amazing! I'd have to wear them with some leggings though.

    1. I also loved the shirts and sleeveless bikers the show, but they were way too pricy to get when it was full priced. I also thought about wearing the shorts with leggings for winter, the back tail is detachable!

    2. It just gets better and better. I shudder to think what Rad's prices are going to be like now he's a "couturier".

    3. Oh yeah, he is doing his whole couture thing now, which probably means he's gonna really focus big time on fabrications and crafts along with his geo-cuts. but seriously, I want to expect the unexpected from him. maybe it's a bit of a combo from margiela's atelier line (the old days) and giv couture? we'd see....

  9. I LOOOVE this outfit. The polka dots, the structured shorts. This is bananas. And it had to have Rad Hourani somewhere in here, it's so typical! I actually didn't buy the cracked nail polish, which is by OPI, because it's so damn expensive and I'm saving up. I was saving up to buy a new camera because I sold mine, but I decided I'm saving up to go to London instead. Let's hope I can find a job when I do get to London...My biggest fear is that even Tesco or Topshop won't hire me a sales assistant haha

    1. I'm super glad you liked this look! The shirt looks great also with a blazer on top, drawing the focus back to the collar tips. Yes you must come on over to London! We'd deal with the occupation stuff once you're here, can't wait for you bring over some of that Portuguese magic ;)
