The ultimate case of cognitive dissonance would be him trying on some Gant by Michael Bastian and discovering it looked better on him than Raf and Geller ever did

Incidentally Rick looks pretty good on all-american blonde types. See: Amber at RO NYC.

There's a legitimate need for thumbs up for the thumbs up. It's all so on the surface, so flat, we need more layers, more intricacies.

For example when Helmut made a perfectly tailored black blazer with elastic bondage straps. That subtlety is gone and I miss it. The mystery and subversion is isn’t there any more, both camps are just trying to hit you over the head with their extremes."
Dead on.

I understand the sentiment, but I don't agree with it. This is one of the problems, imo, with the NYC fashion scene. Everything is so close together that people, like the stores they shop at, feel the need to create a "coherent identity". In LA and in smaller markets like Boston, you see people mixing things up, and stores as well. On the designer front, I think that designers like Stephan Schneider, as well as old stalwarts like Dries van Noten, etc... still hit a pretty decent balance. And Robert Geller is still around, after all.

Joey was super young, and nice, but sort of a dope, in that first picture. I knew him from way back, and I don't think that he'd mind the characterization. He is considerably older now, with a lot more knowledge and confidence. We all grow, and luckily for us, if we actually learn something, we grow into a look that suits us. That Raf sweatshirt from the last of the youth rebellion collections, the Chucks, etc... fit him a lot better than his dive into the goth ninja look.

Err, how is Murakami futuristic? Most of his novels are set in the '80s. puzzled.gif

J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories is also proving to be exceptionally awesome. Never read Catcher in the Rye (I have a ridiculous gap of canon knowledge), so this was a nice intro.

i'm reading pynchon's against the day. i held off from this for a long while because i thought nothing could match his earlier stuff, and this book doesn't, but it still presents luminous patches of prose and ideas that blow murakami and mieville out of the water, much though i like both of those guys.
