Jean-Charles de Castelbajac AW11

Fashion is way out of whack, yo. The Resort collections are already out but we haven't even had time to assess fall (well, that's a lie, the collections came out in February, but this ain't my job). Anyway, I'm going to continue with Fall 2011 nonetheless! Screw my going in order by city, I'm just going to have it it.

Surrealism at its best! The show was titled "Woman/Ray" as an homage to legendary artist/photographer/wizard Man Ray. I liked the way things started out relatively normal but with, say, a Dalmatian print, and then totally fucked with itself as the collection progressed. I mean, dude! Check out the hands bandeau/ strangler. True to Man Ray's time, everything kept a touch of class that acted as a foundation for all the trippy business.
I'd also like to draw everyone's attention to the marvelous skull hats.

Classy Child






I've been obsessing over this editorial for a while now. I just love the masculinity paired with East Coast prep and somewhat hard edge. Badass professors who have a fondness for elbow pads would sympathize with me.

Oh please please please

Lordie! I've taken a veeeeerrrryy long hiatus, longer than I actually wanted to. Blame school and Seussical, my school's musical this year. Don't get me wrong, I get to play a bad bitch with a mod hooker taste, but as a result I've been deliriously busy! Anyway, on the subject of mod...







The sixties have been and always will be one of my most important inspirations. It was just so colorful and liberating and innovative. Yes, the waifish white girl was still prominent, but cultural revolution was taking place en mass. And menswear? I'm in.
