Graphique

'Art' really made its 'attack' on S/S14. The seasonal code of conduct demands bold risk-taking to counter the snooze fest minimalism dragged out - it really overstayed its welcome. Don't get me wrong, I love a look that's edited as much as the next blogger, but if there were to be another patronizing lesson in slouchy silhouettes, oversized bullshit, and how laidback-chic Birkenstocks can be, I will on a visceral level orchestrate an underground mass of graffiti writers to drench that culture to oblivion. There's no need to advocate an overly printed or patterned sartorial movement, but it pains me on a cellular degree to only witness editorial-after-editorial of what could've been innovative styled layering yet somehow still remain so freakin' clean #thefuck? But let's shelve that state of anger, as I'm on a writer's verge of a nervous snap, so back to the issue aka. the ensemble in display. This is probably the most representative look of S/S14 that I could muster up, and here's why: Thanks to ma' homegirl at Rag & Bone, yours humbly, also possess that robustly advertised micro-filament sweater. Truly a seriously provoking piece of knitwear as the deep V reveals I have no cleavage whatsoever; five bucks if you can find something to motorboat. Tied gracefully around my vocal chords, is what appears to be an unexpected feat of accessory by Céline in the form of an Aztec woven fringe scarf, quite literally the the perfect hipster tribal neck-companion to attend festivals in (it can surely somehow also be worn as a turban, I presume). We then drop south and discuss about some debatable footwear. Here we witness the bastard child between a sandal and a loafer (sandfer?), while also being marketed as a pair of sling-backs. Damn, it's like trying to figure out Taylor Lautner's ethnicity all over again, though I still think he looks fully Latino, no? And garnished with all these pieces, I'd dance in front of the Bowery mural featuring the artwork of Maya Hayuk, because it's all about the art attack.

    1. Thanks Jeanne, but I'm still not sold on the idea they're entirely slingbacks, loafers, or sandals. Ha!

  14. Hi Nathan, It was nice to see you stoping by my blog again. I really love your scarf. FYI, I'm Mayan descended and I have a few pieces of clothing that I brought from home with very similar print. I also like to add global touches to my looks once in a while. I adore your GIF picture, it's so much fun. I need to figure out how to make one soon.

    1. Oh!! Then this scarf is made for you! I do feel oddly connected to some form of Aztec/Mayan culture with this feat of accessory, either that or they're wrapped too tightly and my brain is lacking oxygen.

  19. Hahhaah oh my gosh I was actually laughing out loud while reading c; While I do agree that I will die before I wear birkenstocks, I'm actually a big fan of the art that "attacked" S/S14! I guess my style goes back to my Iranian roots in that I love piling patterned layers and colors on top of each other, so I really enjoyed the new stocking of abstract art-print clothing everywhere!
    Regardless, I love your look (the first gif is so cute!) and the location! Staying simple is hard for me, but something I want to experiment a bit more with, and since you nailed it so well, looks like I'll be back here in no time! c; xx

  26. Thanks for stopping by my blog and making me discover the awesomeness that is your blog, and that crazy GiF... Epic!
    By the way, you made chuckle quite hard (which led to an odd look from my boyfriend) when you compared your loafer/slingbacks/ whatever... to Taylor Lautner's ethnicity ( after Twilight I can't get the Native American guess out of my head)
