Anyone see Amiri FW21? Some of the layering/pieces feel very inspired by Teen Knight Poem

I have seen quite a few girls rocking the monogram bags out on the street, but I am probably biased and my eyes are extra sensitive to them. A lot of the girls posting on RED about Celine seem to be posting about their hand bags. I do think it is tough since they're selling a "new" monogram competing with LV. I've heard people say things like, "Why should I buy a monogram bag from Celine if I can get one from LV?" I'm confident that as more celebrities rock it, consumers will start to want one. One of the main things girls say about the coated canvas is that it is hard wearing and good for an everyday option.No mention of the maroquinerie which is the core of the celine brand. Compared to bottega venetta (a rival brand), it seems like it's still dragging behind and the little influence and cultural caché that hedi had with his "bourgois" creations now seems to be completely gone in favor of the silhouettes and aesthetics that venetta is introducing to the industry. It makes LVMH really look stupid for ditching the Phoebe Philo thing they had going for them in favor the dying Hedi fad.
This '50s-era look—the film was made in the late '70s but set in the '50s—pays homage to the iconic greaser subculture of the decade made popular by stars like James Dean and, of course, the characters in question. It later hit the fashion world with a vengeance in the 2010s. An edgy riff on the classic pairing spurred something in the heart of Hedi Slimane during his tenure at Saint Laurent, decorating his runways more than once. At the same time, the formula of t-shirt + jeans + leather jacket served as the philosophy behind off-duty model style that dominated our Tumblr pages circa 2014.
In a decade, I wonder if this will be the look that comes back in fashion. Youth reminiscing about the 2010s, and making fun of their parents wearing cropped wide legged pants.The pairing of a well-fitted t-shirt and cigarette tapered pant—whether that be denim or cotton—is like yin and yang, chocolate and peanut butter, sunshine and lemonade. On top of these fundamental wardrobe staples, add a leather jacket, and through an allusion to the badass-ery of icons like Danny Zuko and those who preceded or followed him, you have a cool yet classic look.
a stunningly beautiful combination of orris butter and rose. smooth as silk; powdery, but not in any way scratchy or suffocating. this is definitely on the makeup side of orris' many facets; the finest milled pressed powder, or the most creamy-soft and buttery lipstick. the rose tames it into a slick of pink and beige skin shades, lightly effervesced by the merest sparkle of bergamot in the opening. incredibly minimal yet executed perfectly. by the point of late dry down, the orris is less buttery and takes on a more traditionally musky-powdery facet. with the vetiver, which introduces itself gradually and subtly, the rose becomes dried and brittle, almost reduced to a pale powder itself. there is also a touch of vanilla as well that begins to emerge. it does seem to augment and sweeten the rose a touch, but again, only so far as to support the main duet and not disturb it. it is, overall, akin to the description, of being like watching a photo de-saturate from overexposure to light and age, or a memory gradually fade to white static. quite nostalgic and melancholic in a way. longevity seems amazing, but it mostly stays close to the skin aside from the opening. that aside, all in all, perfection to my nose.
