Nice interview. 

 

Like that recent collection. Are those Peir Wu sandals?

When she mentioned the almost instantaneous gentrification of subcultures I really wanted to bring up a bunch of horrible social theory I read about in grad school but I refrained. Proud of myself.

Nicely done, Tegs. So nice to read her thoughts on fashion and have a little insight on her work.

Are there any stockists other than Suspension Point?

Looking forward to that webshop! Was an enjoyable read, thanks for doing the interview. The part with the friend wearing margiela pants was great. It's remarkable what nice pants can do to form an outfit. I need better pants. :)

Can only think of two fashion designers who've referenced skate culture recently: BBS and Yang Li, who I believe overlapped with Wu at CSM. Wonder if it's a dig at him devil.gif


I doubt it, that would be pretty dumb. Most ppl first experience fashion through their respective subculture and I feel it's at least somewhat relevant as a formative influence. Afaik both BBS and Yang Li were avid skaters so it makes sense to me to see some of that percolate through their collections. I'm sure the same goes for the LNCC dudes and probably a lot of other ppl who are now working in fashion and who bring some external influences into the mix. Is that nostalgia ? Maybe. Does it move the whole thing forward ? The fuck do I know. But I don't find it annoying at all and I don't see it as subculture gentrification (which is not to say that that kind of stuff is not also happening along with lame appropriations).

doesn't bother me either. at least the skate subculture is a cool one to steal from. boils down to whether it translates into good clothes or not.

kinda depends on the designer, and maybe how much that subculture has already been mined. don't think skate culture has much that's new to offer. but then i can't really think of a subculture that does right now.

wasn't serious about that possibly being a dig at yang li, btw. smile.gif
