It's basically just flaunting your privilege while pretending you're being populist.

I agree that basic workwear is also very accessible, no need for enormous beard and train conductor hat.

Things that my circle of friends (working in fashion or around it) are into right now:

-Other design disciplines, this was always the case but now liking architecture and going to see famous houses/exhibit is very big. Spending on interior deco is also seen as cooler than spending on fashion while having a bare apt and a large closet was seen as punk-rock or some shit a few yrs back. Magazine-style apartment is to be avoided so eclectic taste and cosy furniture is imp. Ages of the people very wildly so this isn't because some are older. Art still popular but that is a constant.

-Wearing sportswear but not in the in-your face way of allover designer sportswear or street-goth. Just wearing a basic Nike sweat with something dressier. Sneakers are def big (sure Stan Smiths) but being a sneakerhead is still ewww. Gosha is ok.

-Fashion but with more moderation in fact: a Rick Owens leather is ok, full look is ewww.

-Fashion from the 80s and 90s found in high-end vintage shops is better than current pieces.

-A real bleu de travail is the must-have menswear piece even though no one cares about typical workwear brands.

-Conservative/well-established luxury brands (i.e. Chanel) better than avant-garde or upstarts.

-Lesbians (don't ask, I have no idea either).

-Clubbing is lame, you go to restaurants and cafés then party at someone's place.

I find many current tends are unbelievably boring and tend toward conservative, conformist tropes. I.e., unless you are referencing 90s trends in order to move them forward what is the point besides nostalgia? Reminds me of the '50s-style' McDonalds I used to frequent as an 8 year old in the 80s, and when was clubbing ever fun?

Hey Dudes,

 

If you've been following Styleforum's instagram account (@ Styleforum), you probably noticed that @nicelynice has been running things for a while from Tokyo. It's time to switch it up - this week, we're heading to Africa, where the incredibly cool @Ivwri ( follow @ ivwri) will be taking over from Lagos, Nigeria. For those that don't know him, Ivwri is one of Styleforum's resident Yohji Yamamoto enthusiasts, a writer of comic books, a coffee and film buff, and the proprietor of Stranger Lagos. He's also a cool dude, so we're glad to have him.

 

So, follow @Styleforum on Instagram, and enjoy @Ivwri's *ahem* guest curation.

Clubbing is awesome, just need to find somewhere that's about the music rather than being a meat market.

Spence cancelled my MMM leather order citing an "internal error", i.e. "we sold it locally". Anybody have navy 5 zip leads?

It certainly reads that way.

hahahahaha please be moo

I don't think moo makes fun of peoples weight or whatever though.  I mean it's one thing to take the piss on our community but you might as well do it within it, and if you're going to, at least be funny or original.
