Our souls will float like butterflys in the windBY ARTISHARD, 2O SOMETHING PROFESSIONAL DREAMER FROM NEW YORKrick / art is hard with extra-special-cut-out-neck upgrade / plokhov / rickNow it's the most lookbook-y photo you've seen on this site.
Do you really think that's what he was trying to do? I think it's simply a case of him getting carried away with the paint tool. Him pretending to be in blackface never once crossed my mind. He was probably trying to make himself look like a silhouette. Or maybe a photo negative. Or any other reason. Whatever the case, I wouldn't have jumped to the blackface conclusion.
For me, it's the fact if I were to order from their website, after you include tax, shipping and duties, the price of a shirt comes out to over $80. At that price, I might as well just go to J Crew or Club Monaco. At least they occasionally go on sale.
The t-shirt and plaid shorts make this look a bit "bro-ish". Like, if you replaced the boots with skateboarder sneakers, wore a big cap, and ditched that cardigan thing, you'd look like every other teenager I see walking about.
