probably, there's often a fair bit of ts(s) on yoox, nothing from this past season yet though.  And still pricey.

^I don't find anything wrong with the writing. I feel like there are two types of writers 1) There are writers that put their emotions on paper 2) Writers that write to elicit emotions from the readers like a cause-and-effect

the former is more direct and it does not allow for much imagination whereas the latter does, which maybe why it is more readable

Hey, you guys keep calling the style "post-apocalyptic," but when they photograph the clothes at an actual site of mass death and destruction, all you do is complain about things like "sensitivity" and "empathy for human lives." Can't you just be satisfied for once?

Soldiers and rescue workers stopped by to take a look at what we were doing and the fact that we were creating something in a place of destruction was a welcome diversion for them. Maybe we were doing something right after all.

omg


 

has this joke gotten old yet? (Click to show)

One asked us, "are you the guys from StyleZeitgeist?"

 

I replied, "why yes, we are."

I'm sure you're just kidding, but a part of this does ring very true though. Maybe it's a case of not being clear enough about the limits of what we like and want to see/have, but I know that there's some stuff out there (e.g. Undercover) that draws inspiration very explicitly from the military and weaponry in a way I find to be extremely callous and contrived. I'm sure there are other ways to read it (and I welcome those readings so I can improve my own), but I just very strongly dislike what appears to me as a glamorization or fantasy of the military and violent power.

I think c4est once posted or cross-posted something about where this style came from (namely weak outsider-kids who got bullied a lot or just didn't fit in), and I understand that narrative as one of self-valuation... But it nonetheless invests in an image of power as if that were something better.

Currently writing on my phone so I'm cutting this short, but I think there's something important in what you wrote Bam, whether you meant I seriously or not.

I think a lot of the issue is how Eugene framed the story of his pictures in a very egoistical manner.

So i just won a bid on ebay, and the guy messaged me to say that he "accidentally" set the reserve too low, so he's refunding me and too bad.  Is there anything I can do?

Other than negative feedback, no.

Doesn't really sound like Undercover.

Undercover...ism? I could've sworn that I've seen that particular brand pictured on magazine covers with guns and stuff a whole lot...

Eugene's writing is objectively poor, though. I mean, it would be respectable for a layman, but he has articles on Business of Fashion and publishes his own magazine.

But in this case, the subject matter is way more offensive than the words he chose to convey it with.
