A nice Zizek quote on PC from In defense of lost causes, a book I don't recommend you read unless you have good background regarding Lacan, Hegel and Marx + general philosophy background, not one of this pop books. "The politically correct vision enacts a weird reversal of racist hatred of Otherness-it stages a kind of mockingly Hegelian negation/sublation of openly racist dismissal and hatred of the Other, of the perception of the Other as the Enemy which poses a threat...
Warning I am not a specialist of cultural appropriation end of warningI don't find the concept useful in a more serious (academic, intellectual whatever) setting. It seems to be derived from differentialist racist views (all cultures are unique, entirely separate and cannot be compared, to each its own place) and applied in a somewhat haphazard way. Cultures aren't monolithic as interpenetration is basically a continuous phenomenon, even the isolated Japanese formally...
It isn't even collecting,I mean maybe he needed 5 (for a week) and had 8 places but aside from that it just seems like some weirdo thing.
I was discussing this with someone who had to arrange for invites a few days ago and if you have a runway show I guess you're designer unless it is a vanity project or brand promo (like H&M). I'd say Cloak was designer. On the other hand Barney's used to put Geller in contemporary, right? I once saw Junya there at Saks ir Barneys though so....
Gainsbourg just wore them until they were dirty, he went through pairs which is different than collecting. J-M Frank just seems like a weirdo, were the suit in the same material?
I just checked Viberg's website and they offer a relatively wide range, Visvim has those ridiculous moccasins who almost make me believe in cultural appropriation and some rougher boots that get lost in a sea of similar offerings (at better price points).I must say I'm surprised at how expensive designer or mid-levelshoes have gotten, Vibergs are $650-750, how much are Edward Green or, I dunno, Saint Laurent these days?A quick search led me to Mr Porter and it would...
At some point (waaay before this guy) it becomes an obsession and has nothing to do with liking styling yourself/wearing cool clothes. We had a member like that who had hundreds of pairs of Edward Green and C&J. More of a collector's mindset really. I think Iggy Pop has like 40 or 50 identical white Brioni shirts.
Most of my shows are at least 5 yrs (often way more) old and I tend not to purchase new ones as I have everything I "need" (LOL). I get new white sneakers when they old ones give out and that's about it. Of course If I see something I really like I'd still get it for fun.A quick rundown tells me I have a lot anyway:Shoes: 8Boots: 17Sneakers: 11Sandals: 2(I have a few Margiela or whatever somewhere else I'm not counting)If you have liked fashion for a while at some point...
Nope, rtw*. I'm not sure I'd compare them in any way, one is a sleek Suede zip boot and the other one a rounded captoe with almost no extension (i.e. looks as small as your feet which can be surprising at first as almost all shoes tend to extend the length) in calf leather. They're both fine, quality only goes so far in mattering and IMHO it stops mattering way before the levels of these two shoes (but after, say, Margiela boots).I've worn the boots in pretty adverse...
It is called a denim jacket. Canadian is used for thetop + bottom denim. Canadian tuxedo or Texas tuxedo are the ones I've heard (on SF to be honest). FYI Canadians aren't particularly into that look but I assume they mean the small subsets of western provinces cowboys, which would somewhat correspond to Texas in the USA. I know I like the look on Pollock.ps: you're supposed to post an image of what you're wearing with you in it. Oh and I don't see any pants so I assume...
