    Entschuldigung, ich bin kaputt.



    I had to read that a few times slowly.

    Then I did a search, wondering what the heck Palace is, and the first result was a Vogue article, which hilariously (to me) began, "You’ve probably heard of Palace by now. "


    It’s a skate brand that has managed to transcend easy classification, thanks to the very specific aesthetic vision of its head, Lev Tanju. The VHS promo videos, ’90s-inspired graphics, guerilla-style pop-up shops, athletic-inspired clothes, and the whole south London vibe in general—all of it originates from him. And while you can pick up a Palace tee or hoodie at Dover Street Market, his goal was never to be accepted by the fashion crowd. “There’s been a big revival in sportswear and huge graphic branding,” Tanju told Style.com. “What we’re doing crosses over, kind of. It makes us relevant, but we’re doing what we want to do, and that’s it.”

    Not sure Shah/Sipang are purchasing much nowadays. I did sprinkle a few 70s and ethnic things in 2015 but that is mostly unconscious bloodhound instinct as it is currently in full bubbling mode. I was of course briefly deluded in believing I was doing this as an idiosyncratic thinker and all that.

    UPS delivered my fishtail to the wrong address or something and won't investigate it until tomorrow.

    Last courier delivery I had, I left instructions to put through cat flap. Tracking showed a photo of cat flap and pissed off looking cat photo-bombing the shot. Sadly it wasn't my door or cat.

    I have enough trouble with my own cats using anything for a bed - one of them will knock clothes off hangers if I forget to shut the door :)

    As I said, not my door or cat...

    This courier company posts a photo of parcels you've requested to have left in a safe place. It was left outside my door a couple of day's later (presumably by this cat's owner).

    The Corner just launched its "No Gender" Section. This is what the future feels like, damn.

    And..... some Vanotti stuff has arrived. KoY, if you're feeling light headed, I have a paper bag you can breathe into.
