“Looking at a 1970’s way to do fabric from the 18th century”, it’s no wonder Alessandro Michele can drive himself mental during the design process. Thankfully, madness can be a blessing. Especially it’s held accountable for dreaming up such a far fetched, yet absolutely sensible, amalgamation of patterns, textures, periods and personalities. A heavily studded floral leather motorcycle jacket, paired with a billowy pink bow and accessorized with loafers and oversized glasses, is just one example of the boyish, punkish nerdy cool looks that has us swooning over this collection.
Stephen Shore‘s ability to turn something as mundane as a highway billboard or a motel room puzzle into captivating scene, leaving the viewer staring and yearning for more, makes him one of the most legendary American photographers. Here are just a few of my favorite works . . . be inspired.
Many of you asked about the jeans I wore in last week’s DIY so I thought I’d share the far too easy steps to achieve the same look. They were inspired by a pair of Vetements, worn by Pernille Teisbaek, during London Fashion Week. I loved the raw, uneven hem so much that I immediately pulled an old pair of jeans from my denim collection and took a seam ripper and pair of scissors to them. Using straight leg denim works best here but you an also experiment with skinny and bootcut styles. I’m on a denim destroy and repair roll – try and stop me!
Just borrow from the boys . . .
