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.
