why is this so specific…
my wardrobe is chill and ready for all seasons~
balance of aesthetics and practicality.
I’m 22 years old. I’m young, active, traveling around, etc. I don’t wanna be decked out in Yohji head-to-toe; I really do appreciate a lot of designers out there on the runway, but a lot of it is just not at all practical for my age or what I do. incorporating one or two pieces like that, sure. but I’m not gonna live my 20’s in all Yohji, Comme, etc. I’ve got my 60’s - death to sit around in that stuff if I want lol
Geller, Saint Laurent, and Undercover, on the other hand, not only do I love the aesthetics of, but also I feel comfortable living my daily life in. there are a good amount of people that think that because these brands don’t make flowy black clothes that the creativity of their respective designers are compromised, but they’re objectively wrong. put simply, the commercial success of the skinny silhouette for men started with Hedi. the reason almost every dude owns a pair of black skinny jeans? that didn’t start at H&M, Zara, etc. fast fashion brands may be the ones mass marketing the styles, but you gotta understand which way influence flows.
even Takahiro Miyashita (I love number (n)ine and the soloist, btw) would be nothing without Hedi Slimane. there, I said it.
